​The Dreamer

This song is by Prefab Sprout and appears on the album Crimson/Red (2013).

She told me that she loved me,
I heard the Siren sing
Her voice as soft as dead of night
A pillow for a king
She tangled me in starlight
I dangled in each beam
Now I'm just a dreamer
Emerging from a dream
She tangled me in starlight
I dangled in each beam
Now I'm just a dreamer
Emerging from a dream

He promised he'd be faithful,
That's what she was told
A ring would guarantee the words,
A promise forged in gold
Her dress a silk creation,
Her train a mile of cream
Now she's just a dreamer
Emerging from a dream
She tangled in the starlight
She dangled in each beam
Now she's just a dreamer
Emerging from a dream

Where are your dreams
Did they all fade away
Lost in the cold light of day

No one sits in judgment,
It's too well worn a theme
No one spots the moment
When the song becomes a scream
We tangle in the starlight
We dangle in each beam
Then become the dreamer
Emerging from a dream
We tangle in the starlight
We dangle in each beam
Then become the dreamer
Emerging from a dream

Where are your dreams
Did they all fade away
Lost in the cold light of day
