Lyrics: XTC

Posted by Comrade , in Lyrics 08 December 2012 · 257 views

I've been in a flurry of writing recently. Combination of stress and a cocktail of emotions galvanizing me I suppose. This one is about that dream we all have of the perfect love - that person, feeling, sensation that we harbour from when we're a kid seeing our parents or couples or movies, whatever - the fairytale love and what happens when you think you meet that person but just don't know how to act. it can scare you, or overpower you. Just leave you unable to reach out and try out of fear of rejection or her not being that one or it not being as good as the fantasy you've held all those years. 
 
I'm really proud of this concept and lyrics. As such, I don't want anyone to feel shame in tearing them apart if they feel so inclined  Any feed back is appreciated and wanted. This feels like a departure for me. 
 


 


Dreamium
 
The dream is more perfect than it seems
Dreaming of your childhood home
And she is more like a fantasy
That made you brave when you were young
The lights of the cars as they pass
Dance like days now left behind
Like teenage years which fade out to grey
For a wistful minded heavy heart
While twenty-three still feels so far away
A part of you waits for the day
To see rather than having to believe
That love exists if you don’t try
 
But everything feels far away
When we’re living in yesterday
And the rest, they don’t hear what I say
The scars you hide hurt more than you deserve
And I hope you find what you need
Melancholy you are mine
 Love, may you enter my mind tonight
 
The dream is more perfect than it seems
Dreaming that you’re all alone
If you change it makes it feel less real
The more you hurt the less you feel
Past love is never an excuse
To live like you’ve been hurt before
Nightmares can last forever in their ways
Playing out through waking eyes
Where innocence gets weaker every day
You see the world another way
You see rather than having to believe
That love exists if you don’t try
 
But everything feels far away
When we’re living in yesterday
And the rest, they don’t hear what I say
The scars you hide hurt more than you deserve
And I hope you find what you need
Melancholy you are mine
 Love, may you enter my mind tonight
 
If seeing is believing why should I
Have any faith in you?
You thought you’d never know the truth because
You’re too scared to look
But you’ll take the jump before she leaves
It doesn’t matter what you believe, oh yeah
But you’ll take the jump before she leaves
The dream is more perfect than it seems
