ALL THE DREAMS

We listen for years for words to explain ourselves. “I’m good but not THAT good,” was such a moment for me. Good enough to stay in the game but never good enough to win.

Last night I kissed somebody
I kissed somebody sweet
I kissed her fingers and her lips
And then I kissed her feet
It’s just imagination
What a boy will dream
Some things are what they are
And some things are just what they seem

I wouldn’t want somebody
That would be wanting me
My standards are too high for that
And I’m as common as can be
I’m good but not that good
And I’m smart but not that smart
And I’m bent over at the finish line
Wishing for a brand new start

Last night I pushed your hair back
So I could see ur face
The shadow on your pillow
Was all that I could trace
Of course I was dreaming
But dreaming’s what I do
And all the dreams I dream
Are all the dreams I dream of you

And I wouldn’t want somebody
Who wasn’t wanting me
My standards are too high for that
And I’m common, as you see
I’m good but I’m not that good
I’m smart but I’m not that smart
Standing, breathless, at the finish line
Praying for another start.

People send me letters
People tell me what to do
No, IO’m not missing people
I’m just missing you

Last night I pushed your hair back
So I could see ur face
The shadow on your pillow
Where there is still a trace
Of course I was dreaming
But dreaming’s what I do
And all the dreams I dream
Are all the dreams I dream of you…
