Price / Peverett - Knee Trembler Music - ASCAP




I used to be a dreamer, I can't be that way no more,
I used to be a dreamer, I can't be that way no more,
Only time has proved me wrong,
You can't live on love alone when reality is far too strong.

Nightmare walkin', creepin' through the lonely nights,
Nightmare walkin', creepin' through the lonely nights,
I wake up with the rising sun,
Try to work away the days, keep my troubles on the run.
Nowhere to hide, nightmare ruin my life.

I wake up from my sleep, I got nightmares on my mind,
Walk around in circles to pass away the time,
I hear the bell tonin' and I see the mornin' light,
Pour myself a drink, but I lost my appetite,
I can't sleep at all, 'cause my dreams are all so bad,
When I get to thinkin' it's about to drive me mad.
See our love dyin' and my eyes begin to burn,
My mind is so confused, I don't know which way to turn.

Wake up with the rising sun,
Try to work away the days, keep my troubles on the run.
Nowhere to hide, nightmare ruin my life.

{Rod - Solo}

Time at last has proved you right,
Now my dreams are turnin' bad, it's the same thing every night.
Nowhere to hide, nightmare ruin my life.

{Instrumental}

Nightmare, ruin my life, yeah,
Nightmare, ruin my life,
Every hour, whoa, every night,
Hear the bell tonin', hear the bell tonin',
Nightmare, yeah, whoa, nightmare, drive me crazy,
Nightmare, yeah, nightmare, drive me out of my mind.
