The Airborne Toxic Event The Thing About Dreams Lyrics

The thing about dreams

Is that everything seems

Like you’re riding a wave

That’s been forming all day in your mind

The thing about time

Is all in your mind

Days turn to weeks turn to years turn to infinite signs:

What you’re leaving behind

And the hell with the rest

You gave them your best

You talk through your teeth

And the black cigarettes

In your hand

I always believed

You were more than impossible

More than you seem

And partly responsible for my life

From my eyes

Let’s stay the night

We’ll leave with the sunrise

The thing about me

Is I wanted to be

More than just friends

And hardly acquaintances

I, I wanna know why

You turn in your sleep

The secrets you keep

The things that you bury so deeply, discreetly inside

My, oh my

And the hell with the words

Or haven’t you heard?

Nobody says what they mean

‘Til the second or third

Whiskey rye

I always believed

You were more than impossible

More than you seem

And partly responsible for my life

From my eyes

Let’s stay the night

We’ll leave with the sunrise

The thing about love:

It’s never enough

Circumstance changes

And life’s always calling your bluff

Enough is enough

And when you sleep

You’re alone

When you dream you’re just one

Of a million small pieces

My darling, I see you, I’m one

I always believed

We were more than impossible

You’re more than you seem

And partly responsible for my lies

From my eyes

And now I’ve said too much

I’m not givin’ up

I can’t carry the weight

Of this overfilled cup

I just close my eyes

Like you’re close to the touch and I’ll dream, dream

You’re not what you seem

You’re not what you seem
