Okkervil River And I Have Seen the World of Dreams Lyrics

sponsored links

[Verse 1]
And I have seen the world of dreams
Fresh-flown through the trees then dropped off at the curb
Alive, have seen the world awake
And I don't know which I deserve
So when sleep nightly comes to me
With all of these warm blankets piled on my back
I'll hike to see the church of dreams
Where all of the shutters are painted black

[Chorus]
And it seems like that's real until the time I awake
And at midnight the moonlight reflects as the lake
Is shining at me, until night takes it away
There's one world in the distance, one world in the way
And not one can stay

[Verse 2]
And I have seen the wood of dreams
Carved grain less and clean with a sweep of one hand
And have been happy with the leaves on my body when laid under land
So when sleep finally comes to me
Because it comes for the sleek like it comes for the lame
I'll sink beneath a weight of dreams so full and complete that I'm pushed from my name

[Chorus]
And it seems like that's real until I fall asleep
And then we load up the car and drive far to some street
Where a new life awaits, until day takes it away
There's one world in the distance, one world in the way
And not one can stay
