Amanda Shires – Swimmer, Dreams Don't Keep lyrics

You're swimming in the daydream
And I'm just watching from the bank
You're covered in sun and I forgot my camera
Wishing it was real
And I try and keep you in my eyes
Permanently save it into my mind

From here the world's spinning
And I swear I'd drown
Just to have you
Come hover over me
Speak something close to me
Oh, it's getting late
So I look for you when I sleep
But it's no good
Because dreams don't keep

April was the last time I think I saw you
You were carrying lightning
The way you walked into the room,
If I was a flower I would've opened up and bloomed
I say I don't care, but I'm a liar
Look how easy a heart can catch on fire

I say I don't care, but I'm a liar
Look how easy a heart can catch on fire
