lyrics

Counting on your sense of obligation
Gonna get you straight eventually
You say you’re feeling numb, I say congratulations
They never knocked me out for free

Daydreamer
Such a late sleeper
When she’s awake you’ll never see her
Yeah daydreamer

The fix is in, declared the Truth Commission
Just when the scales fell from their eyes
Now what you call real life is just an apparition
When you’re asleep, can’t tell no lies

Daydreamer
Such a late sleeper
When she’s awake I can’t believe her
Yeah daydreamer

And my head is getting warm, while my nerves get unsteady
And it’s just the way I like, let you have it when you’re ready
But you’re inconsolable, cuz you know that they’re the lucky ones....

Daydreamer
Such a late sleeper
When she’s awake I can’t believe her
She’s a daydreamer

Day dreamer
Day dreamer
Yeah, day dreamer
