Lyrics

Dreams Bring Me Down                Beth Wimmer c2008
 
Life is just extraordinary i have everything a girl could need
a lovin' man with able hands, clothes and friends and pretty things indeed
but lately when i go to sleep visions come into my bed and haunt
images come swimming in of Love lost and of happiness forgot
 
My Dreams are bringin' me down
my dreams are bringin' me down
 
While i'm sleeping color tinted fantasies are played out in my head
the man i've always loved is making camp for us beside a riverbed
with smoky eyes he deeply sighs he'll keep his fire burning all his life
that's when i wake with tears in eyes and realize i'm someone else's wife
 
My Dreams are bringin' me down
my dreams are bringin' me down
 
and every night i pray i'll be refreshed, but again i wake depressed
and every day i feel my worries lost, but at night i turn and toss
 
Sad scenarios and empty echoes every time i close my eyes
i'm riding with a murderer while in the back seat someone's baby cries
the man i've always loved arrives with watercolor eyes to save my Soul
but when i turn to run to him i fall 1000 miles down a black hole
 
My Dreams are bringin' me down
my dreams are bringin' me down
my dreams are bringin' me down
