Don't Fuck With Our Dreams

by The Smith Street Band

I got dry blood caked on my feet I got dye and dirt all over me I got twelve bucks, got ciggies But I've had good luck and I'm happy You woke me up before your plane left I helped you find your stuff, you kissed my forehead We trashed my room, broke my bed But I've had good luck and I'm happy. And I miss you but it feels good this way Let’s fall in love somewhere that you'll wanna stay I miss you but it’s nice for a change and You can always stay. And we're as happy as ducks in a storm drain Somewhere off Dynon Road swimming in the rain You asked me if I was self-conscious I said ‘Of course I am,’ you took my clothes off. And I was so scared to talk to your friends Pretended that I was a real person Trying to remember names, smiling and nodding But I couldn't kick the grin from when you'd gone and kissed me quickly in the kitchen. It’s cool, you can crash in my room while I'm away.
Did you ever stop to think that maybe we were right? That these antiquated ventures had finally run out of time And maybe with a little hope and a dash of self-esteem We can start something that our little world has never seen Because complaining isn't changing and knowledge it means nothing If you use it to complain about how nothing changes. Let's start something bigger than us You can do more than you were ever taught. So today I won't get old, just spend some time alone, talk to friends who listen ‘Cause last night we tried something and it worked Beat anything I ever bought, sold or rehearsed And when I tell you all I love you fuck I couldn't mean it more ‘Cause you know that I'd be dead now if it wasn't for these chords. There are more open doors now than there have ever been So let 'em close, and jump out the window with me. Worst case scenario, we land hand in hand on the street But imagine if we flew how beautiful we'd let that be.
