Thompson Twins – Salvador Dali's Car lyrics

I had a dream, a dream that would make you scream
I was climbing inside a brilliant mind
I was gathering flowers at the bottom of the ocean
And laughing to myself in real slow motion
(chorus) Lying in the gutter
Shooting up the stars
I'm driving in Salvador Dali's car
(He's driving in Salvador Dali's car)
Yeah I'm driving but I just can't get that far
I was dancing with the daughter of Harry Dean
Wearin' a pair of boots that didn't belong to me
And there were half a dozen cowgirls doing much the same
And for one sweet moment I forgot my own name
I wanna feel it
I wanna feel it
Yeah Yeah Yeah Let's go
I was drawing up plans to save the world
From all the evil hearts and all those skinny girls
Then I realised I was wasting all my time
'Cos it was just another movie playing in my mind
So let's go
C'mon C'mon let's go
Let's go
