dirty dream number two lyrics – belle & sebastian

i’m lucky, i can open the door and i can walk down the street
unlucky, i’ve got no place to go and so i follow my feet
a choice is facing you, a healthy dose of pain
a choice is facing you as you stare through the rain
a choice is facing you but i choose to refrain for today
tomorrow we’ll be back in trouble again

dream one, you had a whole lot of fun with a comedian
stop short of going all the way, you’ll have to make it someday
why is this happening to you, you’re not a child
why is this happening you’re too much on your mind
things creep up on you when you are fast asleep
you are dreaming, you are sleepy, you are stuck to the sheets

in a town so small there’s no escaping you
in a town so small there’s no escape from view
in a town so small there’s nothing left to do

dream two, you couldn’t see her face, but you saw everything else
dream two was pretty special, easily beats loving yourself
could you put a name to someone else’s sigh?
could you put a face to someone else’s eyes?
is it someone that you’d maybe recognize?
but it all fades into morning when you open your eyes
