Lyrics

open up your door for me
and let me in
oh can't you see
how cold i am?

you remain there
unabated
and you refuse to let me lose you
only when i sleep i do

and the sounds forming words
from the wellspring of concern
while my boat in that ocean turned
on the hull i watched the city burn
in a dream
in a dream
in a dream
it seemed real

even in the dream i cried
i'm a giveaway
i could never hide
all the sadness inside

blue
what a funny colour to colour you
love is hard to hold onto
only when i sleep i do

and the sounds forming words
from the wellspring of concern
while my boat in that ocean, turned
on the hull i watched the city burn
in a dream
in a dream
in a dream
it seemed real
