City & Horses – I Don't Want To Dream lyrics

My nose bleeds and flares like a torch
Cement cracked weeds scar my grandma's porch
I'm not the sort to turn away

Like spider veins choke David's right peck
My eyes are wider than a Coke bottle neck
I jump the deck to hit the hay

I can sleep like nobody's business
Just please don't let me dream
I cannot bear to bear witness
To the scary thoughts that haunt me

My legs are restless and kick like an ass
And there on the wall a slack jaw Billy bass
Turns and takes me to the river

The bumps under my eyes form you and me
The crease in the sheets meant I slept till three
And awake in a river

I can sleep like nobody's business
Just please don't let me dream
I cannot bear to bear witness
To the scary thoughts that haunt me

I never sang that I wanted to be haunted
That wasn't me, I don't drink whiskey
But of my beds, oh my rebellious beds
Are empty, are empty
Are empty now
Are empty now
Don't tempt me now
