These Dreams In Me

from Road Songs by Alex McMurray

lyrics

if i laid my heart open—open like a book
could you see everything that it’s about
because it’s all in there somewhere if you care to look
even most of the things i left out
now i always rambled and i might’ve lost my way
and i know i lost my money now and then
now i’m sorting through the shambles
of a hazy couple days
and i wonder if i’m going home again

because i want to know where the pale moon goes
when he lays his burden down
and i want to be where it’s wild and free
before the next moon comes around
these dreams in me

now i left home when i was seventeen
and i never knew who i was before
but my brother came and found me woke me from a dream
said the old man ain’t getting up no more

there was trouble all around me and hope was wearing thin
could even feel the rope around my neck
never fails to astound me the places that i’d been
when you finally pulled me stumbling from the wreck

because i want to know where the pale moon goes
when he lays his burden down
and i want to be where it’s wild and free
before the next moon comes around
these dreams in me
just want to be wild and free
these dreams in me
need not be yours, you see…

now we’re riding on a vapor trail caught behind a mule
since we threw our little luck together
we’re a tiger with a paper tail almost out of fuel
and it looks like we’re in for nasty weather

you can almost taste it but the road is getting rough
and it seems like there’s a breakdown every mile
but it’s getting time we faced it and i hope that that’s enough
to keep us going for another little while

because i want to know where the pale moon goes
when he lays his burden down
and i want to be where it’s wild and free
before the next moon comes around
these dreams in me
