“You’re Only Dreaming” Lyrics

(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)

The girl from {Pay Street} says she’s got my number
I’m top of the pops, and she’s bubbling under
She wraps me in limbs like a human octopus
Talk about something that’s bigger than both of us

Bells start to ring
I hear the angels calling me
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)

{I’m shaking the hand of the one abandoned}
Everything’s going the way I planned it
I’ve been here all night, and they call me crackpot
Now, they’re my friends ’cause I hit the jackpot

But bells start to ring
I hear the angels calling me
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)

Oh, well, hey, ho
I go back to work
Just another
Caught in the machine
Pleasant dreams

(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Di di do-do, di di do-do)

I’m tired of the rat race, this competition
Regarding the world, I change my position
I sit on the floor in the lotus posture
It’s better than sex, and it doesn’t cost ya

Bells start to ring
I hear the angels calling me
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming) (Di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming) (Di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming) (Di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do)
(Open your eyes, you’re only dreaming) (Di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do, di di do-do)
