Stole my Dreams
Oh I know all about being carried away
I pursue course with a vigour
I’ll thank you to stay in close supply
Although I know we both know it won’t be no easy road
I watch you burn and I keep you hid
On fire with a torch of endless thought
You curl my lips in a half-baked way
And possess the thoughts I had or thought I thought I did
Then you stole my dreams
Then you stole my dreams
When you stole my dreams
Oh I know what it is to be going nowhere
I been too long with the poet
I’ll thank you to stand way over there
While I figure out where it is I’m going
Then you stole my dreams
Then you stole my dreams
When you stole my dreams
Stop for a minute see what you’re doing you’ll never get that feeling back boy
So you rock on up to the limit you terrify the general public
Whether you’re a romantic or a republic
One of us winds up laughing and one of us sleeps in the bath
Oh I know what’s like to be nothing at all
I’ve been so long with the Buddha
I was a basketball case back and forth inside my head
Hoping to score but I’m dreaming instead
Then you stole my dreams
Then you took my dreams
When you stole my dreams
Whether it’s a whisper or a tsunami
Nothing blows like Mother Nature
And nothing ever will
