"Is This A Dream?" Lyrics

Badly Drawn Boy Lyrics


"Is This A Dream?"

Welcome to the tragedy
It’s not the way it’s supposed to be, I know
And now I’m seeing things
Saw something moving under your skin
You can talk to animals
Doolittle or do nothing at all
I’m a melted snowman
Tried to crack the codes, they all came back wrong
It just took too long

You find it comical
Not in a way that makes you laugh
I’m not a killer
You could bring out the killer in me
Take a snapshot
What’s going on in this world, will only get you down
Find the meaning

Is this a dream?
It’s like a disease
That we all catch in our sleep
Invisible dream
I need electronic eyeballs
Just to see past the truth
And give me some love
Your heart starts beating to the sound of your dreams
I need some love
And a hot air balloon, so we can make our escape

I’m running out of caviar
Had to sell the super car, oh no
Thanks Mr Andrews
For giving me the big red book of my life
In this search for freedom
There’s always somebody trying to pin you to the wall
Today’s a good day
Found a letter from Bono, not seen in years
So just dry those tears

Is this a dream?
It’s like a disease
That we all catch in our sleep
Am I in your dream?
We gotta stop waiting for the apples to fall
And give me some love
I need electronic eyeballs
Just to see past the truth
And give me some blood
Your heart starts beating to the sound of your dreams

Gather up all your tear drops
Gather up all your tear drops
Gather up all your tear drops
Pour them on me…

Is this a dream?
Like a chronic disease
That we all catch in our sleep
And if god is real
We gotta just stop blaming him when things go wrong
And show me some love
When the whole thing pops
You’ll be the sole survivor
I need your blood
And a hot air balloon, to make my arrival…
