Steve Earle – I Thought I Was Dreaming lyrics

I thought I was dreaming
The moon was hangin' in a clear blue sky
You were standin' there screaming
And I didn't have a clue as to why
I thought I was dreaming
Cause all I heard you say was goodbye
I thought I was dreaming

I would make up reasons
You were not at home
Your history of demons
Callin' on the phone
I check the locks each night
I check 'em once again
To keep the cold, cruel world outside
And keep you safe within'

Repeat chorus

No one has to know
No one has to see
All your childhood secrets
Are safe right here with me
Let me soothe your fever
Let me bring you peace
Let me take you away from all these
Masters of Deceit

So far, so far away we'll go
So far, so far away and where we'll stop nobody knows

Repeat chorus

I thought I was dreamin'
I thought I was dreamin'
I thought I was dreamin'
All I heard you say was good-bye
