Delightful Nightmare

This song is by Hugh Cornwell and appears on the album Hooverdam (2008).

As the light drifts away I'm floating through a vestibule
And I'm shown to my place
The curtains part and I'm face to face
As the scenes take the screen I say my lines
They're different every time
I'm not sure she exists
In the afterglow of when we kiss

It's a delightful nightmare
It's a delightful nightmare
It's a delightful nightmare

Will I find out her name to ponder on
When sleep has gone
Will we meet in daylight will I recognize
And see through her disguise
Will we speak of our dreams
Where everything is not as it seems

It's a delightful nightmare
It's a delightful nightmare
It's a delightful nightmare

Now it seems long ago
That I played my part in our little show
As her touch fades away to a memory
Like the moving sea

It's a delightful nightmare
It's a delightful nightmare
It's a delightful nightmare
