Joan Osborne – Spider Web lyrics

I dreamed about ray charles last night
And he could see just fine

Dreamed about ray charles last night
And he could see just fine, you know
I asked him for a lullaby
He said, 'honey, I don't sing no more'
No more, no more, no more
Ray don't sing no more

He said, 'since I got my eyesight back,
My voice has just deserted me.
No 'georgia on my mind' no more...
I stay in bed with mtv. '

Then ray took his glasses off
And I could look inside his head
Flashing like a thunderstorm
I saw a shining spider web

Spider web (repeat 3x)
In ray charles' head

I dreamed about ray charles last night
He took me flying in the air
Showed my own spider webs
Said, 'honey, you had best take care.
The world is made of spider webs
The threads are stuck to me and you
Be careful what you're wishing for
'cause when you gain you just might lose'
You just might lose your...

Spider web (repeat 3x)
What ray charles said

When you're feelin' lonely
When you're hidin' in your bed
Don't forget your string of pearls
Don't forget your spider web

When I go to sleep tonight
Don't let me dream of brother ray
No, no, no, don't...
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad he sees
Just like him best the other way

Spider web (repeat 3x)
What ray charles said...
In ray charles head

All I got's my spider web
Keepin' me alive
C'mon ray
