Got your tape and it changed my mind
Heard your voice in between the lines
Come around from another time
Where nobody ever goes

All alone on the overpass
Wired and phoned to a heart of glass
Now I'm falling in love too fast
With you or the songs you chose

And all the stars
Play for me
Say the promise you long to keep

[Chorus:]
I can hear you sing it to me in my sleep [Repeat: x1]

I've been living in your cassette
It's the modern equivalent
Singing up to a Capulet
On a balcony in your mind

In the City the lion sleeps
Pray to Sony my soul to keep
Were you ever so bright and sweet
Did you ever look so nice

And all the sounds
Dream for me

[Chorus]
I can hear you sing it to me in my sleep [Repeat: x1]

    General CommentI think this song as about him recieving a mixed tape from a significant other and using it obsessively to figure her out. When you make someone you love a mixed tape, alot of times you're trying to get them to understand something about you based on the songs you chose. By reading between the lines, he wants to know if this girl really is as perfect as he wishes she was. Basically he's putting to much stake in some songs. I love the part where you can hear someone singing sort of in the background. i think theyre saying "the yellow brick road will find you"...anyone more clear on that?
