Thomas Dolby – The Beauty Of A Dream lyrics

The beauty of a dream is you don't let it go,
You don't ever let it go.

Once in a while a girl comes along
And opens your heart like a spam tin
Just how long can it take?
A bow bends, a bow breaks
And then when it's time to return the key
She'll flash you a smile as she slams the door
But you didn't have to do that to me
To show me just how cruel love could be
And cruel's a show I kinda starred in before.

Listen: these things take time to reach ground zero
Change hits so hard and the world turns so slow
These things take time and next time you'll know
But the beauty of a dream is you don't let it go,
You don't ever let it go.

Now how come a hand as gentle as yours
Could soften a hard nut like this one?
It's a marvel to me
The way you wrapped my heart up completely
Whenever I roam I can't seem to find
As decent a love as the one I left behind
Keep it slow, though, for me girl
I never thought I'd sink in this deep
Oh darling, I'm sinking like a bug in a peach.

Listen: these things take time to reach ground zero
Change hurts so good and the world screams hello
These things take time but this time I know
But the beauty of a dream is you don't let it go,
You don't ever let it go.
You don't ever let it go.
We won't ever let it go.

And I believe in the promises I made you
And I mean to keep them over and over and over again
Boom! There's a cannon for the first twenty years
Boom! There's a cannon for the next.

It's a marvel to me
I never thought I'd sink in this deep
Oh darling, I'm sinking like a frog on a leaf
