Dream Girl

Dream Girl (from the album Cadillacs & Tarantulas)

My dream girl just left, and she wasn’t even here.
I want to get drunk, but I don’t like beer.

She’s a pussycat by day, and a vampire at night.
Instilling lust in some, in others she conjures fright.

Thunder and lightning… Cinnamon and sugar teddy bears,
Thunder and lightning… A quiet tamed dragon.
Thunder and lightning… These 4 walls are haunting me
Thunder and lightning… It’s grown dark, I cannot see

She had motorcycle breath. She’d wrap around you like DNA
She was innocent at one time, now her picture’s on the page

Her secrets remain inside… between reality and dream
It should come as no surprise… she won’t reveal her identity

Our personalities are undressed, there’s shadow puppets on the floor
Maybe I should rest, but I keep coming back for more


There’s a knock at the door, as I finish my last peek
But I’ll be back for more, to crack the password and see
