​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
And when hunger creaks inside us
Then it breathes its offer again

This is not us
This is not us
We are dreamers!
This is not us
This is 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 on
And a song we might hear
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
This is not us
We are dreamers!
This is not us
This is 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
Ah, don't rattle those keys
So don't wake me, don't make me look
Ah, you gotta let me dream

This is not us
This is not us
We are dreamers!
This is not us
This is not us
We are dreamers!

When the night it falls
And the four winds blow
(We are dreamers!)
With the hunger creaking inside
(We are dreamers!)
When the cold it creeps
And there is nothing to burn
The great tree already sliced
(We are dreamers!)

You can rob us
You can trick us
You'll peer over our shoulders
And steal our ideas
Come inside
There is nothing left here
Just a table to dance on and a pot we might piss in
And the cold creeps and the night falls
(We are dreamers!)
And the cold falls and the hunger creaks
This is not us
This is not us
We are dreamers!
This is not us
This is not us
We are dreamers!
This is not us
This is not us
We are dreamers!
