The Paul Butterfield Blues Band – In My Own Dream lyrics

Lead vocal Chorus

I didn't know.
I was such a fool.
And it took me a long time,
Just to find out,
That my head,
Is upside down.
What I was standing on,
You know, it wasn't too solid ground, oh no.
To satisfy, (Chorus: To satisfy)
What I thought I'd be, (Chorus: What I thought I'd be)
I kept on living, ooo, yeah, (Chorus: I kept on living)
In my own dreams. (Chorus: In my own dream)
And everyday, (Chorus: Everyday)
I grew blinder. (Chorus: Everday)
Thought I was so strong, (Chorus: So much stronger)
I didn't need nobody's help.
Oh, the strongest river, (Chorus: Oooo)
Can't flow up hill, wo, no.
To satisfy, (Chorus: To satisfy, oh yeah)
What I thought I'd be, oo, yeah (Chorus: What I thought I'd be)
I kept on living, (Chorus: I kept on living)
In my own dream. (Chorus: In my own dream)
You know, the tides of love, yeah
Are so strong.
You know, it carried me back
And showed me my wrong, yeah, ooo.
To satisfy (Chorus: To satisfy)
Yeah, what I thought I'd be (Chorus: What I thought I'd be)
I kept on living, oo, yeah (Chorus: I kept on living)
In my own dream. (Chorus: In my own dream)
Fading:
Now, everyday (Chorus: Everyday)
I grew blinder (Chorus: Everyday)
Thought I was strong (Chorus: So much stronger)
I didn't need nobody. (Chorus: Ooooo)
But the strongest river
Can't flow uphill, oh no
To satisfy, ooo (Chorus: To satisfy)
What I thought I'd be (Chorus: What I thought I'd be)
