The Bay
Day after day you come to me
Day after day you tell me it's not right, hey..
Day after day, moon-girl, pillow-girl, starry-eyed bride
Waiting for you and a thousand half-caught reveries
Waking for... you cooking me

Day after day worrying no-one, but shadowboxing inside
a dream that breaks my jaws with splintered milk
All I've fallen for..

I've been living on dreams, I've been living on dreams
I've been living on dreams, but now leave me alone with my rage

Now will confessions shake this lot?
'Cause Lord, the mere thought of them sends me shivering
Day after day mongooses painted all across my face
These eyes grow deep as loopholes spitting arrows
Now fantasies won't come true

Day after day calling it quits, then throwing punches inside a dream that breaks my jaws
All I ever fell for...

I've been living on dreams, I've been living on dreams
I've been living on dreams, but now leave me alone with my rage

Before the morning comes
a dark grey storm
pushes ahead
kettle gone cold
berth asunder
where's that anchor?
hair spread
weightless
underwater...
new morning, pray, come heal

cos I shouldn't think like this but

I've been living on dreams, I've been living on dreams
I've been living on dreams, now you leave me alone with my rage.
