I wrote this after the third straight night that I saw her when I slept. They were wonderful dreams, but not anymore...because she’s still there, every night, and I’m afraid that is the only place she’ll ever be. - David


This town’s underwater, ‘cause I control the weather
and ev’rytime I cry, it rains.
This town ain’t seen a sunrise for what feels like a lifetime,
‘cause I ain’t had a happy thought in days.

So last night I dreamed myself away.
Last night I dreamed myself away from this place,
it was a lovely dream.
Such a lovely dream...

‘Cause you were there.
Dreamed myself into a fairytale,
and found you there.
Babe, I’d dream myself anywhere,
but you – you gotta swear that you’ll be there.

I was tired of the East Coast, so I drove towards the West Coast.
Guess I just got lost somewhere in between.
The last time that I saw you was the last time that I’ll leave you,
‘cause I just can’t take you away from me.

I need you there.
