Lyrics: XTC

Entry posted

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
