[Kim]
Dreaming
dreaming of a girl like me
hey what are you waiting for?
feeding
feeding me?

i feel like i'm disappearing
getting smaller every day
but i look in the mirror
and i'm bigger in every way

she said
you aren't never going anywhere
you aren't never going anywhere
i ain't never goin' anywhere
i ain't never goin' anywhere

i'm in heaven now
i can see you Richard

goodbye Hollywood, goodbye Danny
hello Janis, hello Dennis, Elvis
and all my brand new friends
i'm so glad you're all here with me
until the very end

dreaming
dreaming of how it's supposed to be
but now this tunic's spinning
around my arms and knees

i feel like i'm disappearing
getting smaller every day
but when i open my mouth to sing
i'm bigger in every way

she said
you are never going anywhere
you are never going anywhere
i aint' never goin' anywhere
i aint' never goin' anywhere

hey mum look
i'm up here
i finally made it
i play in a drumsband too
don't be sad
the band doesn't sound half bad
and i remember mum
what you said
you said honey
you look so underfed

[lots of background talking (incomprehensible)]

another green salad
another ice tea
there's a tunic in the closet
waiting just for me

i feel like i'm disappearing
getting smaller every day
but i look in your eyes
and i'm bigger in every way

she said
you aren't never going anywhere
you aren't never going anywhere
i ain't never going anywhere
i ain't never going anywhere

goodbye Richard
got to go now
i'm finally on my own
but then i start again
keep your lovelights glowing
little girl's got the blues
i can still hear mama say
honey don't let it go to your head
