Sleep To Dream

Original and similar lyrics
I tell you how I feel But you don't care I say tell me the truth But you don't dare You say love is a hell You cannot bear And I say gimme mine Back and then go there For all I care I got my feet On the ground And I don't go to Sleep to dream You got your head In the clouds And you're not at All what you seem This mind, this body And this voice cannot be Stifled by your deviant ways So don't forget what I told you Don't come around I got my own hell to raise I have never been So insulted in all my life I could swallow the seas To wash down all this pride First you run like a fool Just to be at my side And now you run like a fool But you just run to hide And I can't abide I got my feet On the ground And I don't go To sleep to dream You got your head In the clouds and You're not at all What you seem This mind, this body And this voice cannot be Stifled by your deviant ways So don't forget what I told you Don't come around I got my own hell to raise Don't make it a big deal Don't be so sensitive We're not playing A game anymore You don't have To be so defensive Don't you plead me your case Don't bother to explain Don't even show me your face 'Cause it's a crying shame Just go back to the rock From under which you came Take the sorrow you gave And all the stakes you claim And don't forget the blame I got my feet On the ground And I don't go To sleep to dream You got your head In the clouds and You're not at all What you seem This mind, this body And this voice cannot be Stifled by your deviant ways So don't forget What I told you Don't come around I got my own hell to raise

Lift (With Love We Will Survive)

FLICKERSTICK "Welcoming Home The Astronauts"
Lift up your head Focus on every detail Why does this illusion bring so much confusion When all I can dream of is you Lift up your head We're rising with every breath A liquid solution a chemical fusion When all I can dream of is you Constantly feeling the earth spinning around But I'm standing alone With you I see stars in your eyes In a trance I'm so high With you I survive Let's get away now! Imagine there's no one around Imagine you're not just a face in the crowd There's a new set of rules No more pain of confusion You're numb to the world that you know I'm constantly feeling like nothing's bringing me down cause you're always around With you I see stars in your eyes In a trance we're alive Ten feet off of the ground Let's turn it up now! I got you I got you I got you It's ready for you Lift up your head It's amazing where everyone goes in the end Why does this illusion bring so much confusion When all I can dream of is you I'm on the ground I'm off the ground Ten feet off (when I'm with you) Ten feet off (when I'm with you) I could be true with you I could be through with you Don't you get it we're alive Completely out of sight We're running out of time With love we can survive Don't you get it we're alive Completely out of sight With love we will survive

Useless

DEPECHE MODE "Ultra"
Well it's about time It's beginning to hurt Time you made up your mind Just what is it all worth All my useless advice All my hanging around All your cutting down to size All my bringing you down Watch the clock on the wall Feel the slowing of time Hear a voice in the hall Echoing in my mind All your stupid ideals Got your head in the clouds You should see how it feels With your feet on the ground Here I stand the accused With your fist in my face Feeling tired and bruised With the bitterest taste All my useless advice All my hanging around All your cutting down to size All my bringing you down All your stupid ideals Got your head in the clouds You should see how it feels With your feet on the ground

I Am A Wanderer

JOAN BAEZ "Day After Tomorrow"
I am a wanderer, feet on the ground, Heart on my sleeve and my head in the clouds. I own the star above some distant shore, Wandering ever more. I am a refugee torn from my land, Cast off to travel this world to its end. Never to see my proud mountains again But I still remember them. [Instrumental] I am a labourer, sign round my neck: "Will work for dignity, trust and respect". Stand on this corner so you don't forget I haven't had mine yet. I am a prisoner pacing my cell, Three steps and back, my corner of hell. Lock me away and you swallow the key, But some day I shall be free. And I'll be a wanderer, feet on the ground, Heart on my sleeve and my head in the clouds. I own the star above some distant shore, Wandering ever more.

Pilgrims

AS IT IS
My early memories only come in handfuls And those that follow span a decade uneventful They live in VCRs that play my scrapes and scars on a screen for all 'Cause I was never one to look at them as anchors But something lighter like a souvenir or postcard I packed them up to drive and carry on 'til I called a new town home I wanted more for myself than seeing life in the shade of this town To always follow footsteps that never left I wanted more for myself Just because I've got my head in the clouds Doesn't mean that my feet are off the ground And if we're meant for things, then maybe I'm meant to be here I've got my head in the clouds I've got my feet on the ground And if we're meant for things then maybe I'm meant to be here I carried on to drive and called a new town home
