Lyrics “Dreams Tonite” – Alvvays

Rode here on the bus
Now you’re one of us
It was magic hour
Counting motorbikes on the turnpike
One of Eisenhower’s
Live your life on a merry-go-round
Who starts a fire just to let it go outIf I saw you on the street
Would I have you in my dreams tonight
If I saw you on the street
Would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight
On the lead guitar
Said you’d go to work
In the waking hour
In fluorescent light
Antisocialites watch a wilting flower
Live your life on a merry-go-round
Who builds a wall just to let it fall down
If I saw you on the street
Would I have you in my dreams tonight
If I saw you on the street
Would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight
If I saw you on the street
Would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight
If I saw you on the street
Would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonightDon’t sit by the phone for me
Wait at home for me, all alone for me
Your face was supposed to be hanging over me like a rosary
So morose for me; seeing ghosts of me; writing oaths to me
Is it so naive to wonder…
If I saw you on the street
Would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight
If I saw you on the street
Would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight…
