We Are Dreamers!

This song is by Tindersticks and appears on the album The Waiting Room (2016).

It’s out there, skulking around
Shuffling outside of our door
Whispering, it beckons us still
Tapping away at our locks
Through breaking days and falling nights it waits…
When the hunger creaks inside us then
It breathes its offer again

This is not us, not us, we are dreamers!
This is not us, not us, we are dreamers!

You can rob us, you can trick us
Peer over our shoulders and steal our ideas
Come inside, there is nothing left here
Just a table to dance and a song we might hear
And as the cold creeps and the night falls (We are dreamers!)
And as the cold falls and the hunger creaks (We are dreamers!)

This is not us, not us, we are dreamers!
This is not us, not us, we are dreamers!

And we hang on as we hurtle through this space
Together we cling as we are spun in the beauty of our dreams
So don’t wake me, don’t shake these bones, don’t rattle those keys
So don’t wake me, don’t make me look, just let me dream!

This is not us, not us, we are dreamers!
This is not us, not us, we are dreamers!

When the night it falls and the four winds blow (We are dreamers!)
With the hunger creaking inside us (We are dreamers!)
When the cold it creeps and there is nothing to burn (We are dreamers!)
The great tree already felled and sliced (We are dreamers!)
You can rob us, you can trick us (We are dreamers!)
Peer over our shoulders and steal our ideas (We are dreamers!)
Come inside, there is nothing left here (We are dreamers!)
Just a table to dance on and a pot we might piss in (We are dreamers!)
And as the cold creeps and the night falls (We are dreamers!)
And as the cold falls and the hunger creaks (We are dreamers!)

This is not us, not us, we are dreamers!
This is not us, not us, we are dreamers!
