​Quick as Dreams

This song is by Slaid Cleaves and appears on the album Wishbones (2004).

You hung your hopes on a crooked nail
Dropped your dreams down a rusted pail
A little broken china coffee cup
Could hold what's left of what you still won't give up
Where do all your dreams go to
When it all starts to turn untrue
What is all your wishing for
When you just don't believe
Anymore
You threw your love like a skipping stone
Never had a chance, you shoulda known
Beg the fates to give it back
And you're sinking as the sky goes black
Where do all your dreams go to
When it all starts to turn untrue
What is all your praying for
When you don't believe the words
An eyelash lay upon her face
You still keep it in a secret place
Take it out and remember when
She was here then put it back again
Put it back again
A million stars in the cold black sky
Maybe one will fall for you tonight
A silver moon and diamonds high
A worthless penny when she said goodbye
Where do all your dreams go to
When it all starts to turn untrue
What is all your wishing for
When you don't believe in dreams
Anymore
