​You Dreamer

This song is by Big Country and appears on the album Why The Long Face (1995).

Original video
Down at the cornerstore
Never busy anymore
He's in the back room talking pie
In there all by himself
Counting bugs up on the shelf
Watching the window fill with flies

Oh, you dreamer
Is this the way that you believed
Your life was gonna turn out?
Oh, you dreamer
Is this the better world
That you were making all those plans for?

Meanwhile in the great indoors
Pizza boxes on the floor
Prescription junkies pass the day
TV actors screw around
Wrapped in silk and dressing gowns
A grown up drama for a day

Oh, you dreamer
Is this the way that you believed
Your life was gonna turn out?
Oh, you dreamer
Is this the better world
That you were making all those plans for?

You know there's a house on Victory Street
Where no one wipes their feet
A car is rusting in the yard
Mommy scrubs and daddy scores
Keeps his stash beneath the floor
Under the bed of baby blue

I need a guide book
Get me a map
Not even Indiana Jones could deal with that
The tank is empty
A wheel came off
How can someone find me if no one knows I'm lost?
Hey, if no one knows I'm lost

Oh, you dreamer
Is this the way that you believed
Your life was gonna turn out?
Oh, you dreamer
Is this the better world
That you were making all those plans for?
