Dreamer 

Written in April 1999, in Nashville, Tennessee

I was there when I could be
She said it was always supposed to be
Me and her and everything would be ok
I guess a dreamer sees it that way

Coffee cups and minds made up
Everything added up to enough
You tempted me and called my bluff
Well ok, I guess a cynic sees it that way

Well if you and my circle of friends
Keep running backwards
And me and your circle of friends
We can’t make amends

I guess a dreamer sees it that way
They’re thinking everything’s ok
Ask a dreamer and they’ll say
That even when it rains
They won’t waste a beautiful day
Dreamers see it that way

Well if you and my circle of friends
You keep running backwards
And me and your circle of friends
We can’t make amends

I guess a dreamer sees it that way
Thinking everything’s ok
Ask a dreamer and they’ll say
That even when it rains
They won’t waste a beautiful day
The sunshine’s my refrain
Dreamers see it that way

Time moves on, we keep on
We keep singing the same old song
You were right and I was wrong
Oh yeah,
Right
Ok…
I guess a dreamer sees it that way
