The Jam – Dream Time lyrics

Streets I ran - This whole town
Backstreets and all - I wanted to leave there
But no matter how fast I ran, my feet were glued
I just couldn't move there
I saw the hate and lots of people
I heard my name called above the noise
I tried to speak but my tongue was tied
Bumped into emptiness and started to cry - Oh no
I saw the lights and the pretty girls
And I thought to myself what a pretty world
But there's something else here that puts me off
And I'm so scared dear, my love comes in frozen packs
Bought in a supermarket
Streets I ran, through wind and rain
Around this place amongst steaming sunshine
Scared I was, sweating now
Feeling of doom, my bowels turned to water
I felt hot breath whisper in my ear
I looked for somewhere to hide but everywhere's closed
I shut my eyes pretend not to be here
This feeling's much too real to ever disappear - Oh no
I saw the lights and the pretty girls
And I though to myself what a pretty world
But there's something else here and that puts me off
And I'm so scared dear, their hate comes in frozen packs
Bought in a supermarket
And I'm so scared dear
My love comes in frozen packs
