lyrics

Well I dreamed she wasn't Mormon, she had just pretended to be
So that she would have a reason to break up with me
So she could fuck that other guy, the tall one with the deep voice
And she told me I could have her now, as if I had a choice

'Cause I was in town, and she was in town
And she said meet me at your house
And the way she smiled left no doubt
What we'd be meeting about

And I loved her just the same as I did all those years ago
And she called me by my name like she did all those years ago
And I felt like we became who we were all those years ago
And she said it was a shame what we left all those years ago

Well I thought she was a vision, so I said show me your hand
She replied with a confession that more than met my demand
But it all was made of sand, she had to crumble at my touch
She said, I'm so sorry babe, but I can only do so much

And I was with her, and she was with me
And she said I love you eternally
And the way she breathed was so good
Felt just like I knew she would

And I loved her just the same as I did all those years ago
And she called me by my name like she did all those years ago
And I felt like we became who we were all those years ago
And she said it was a shame what we left all those years ago

Well I know it was a dream, so it didn't really happen
But I'm worried, 'cause I think that's what I'd really do under those circumstances
And that hurts to know, it hurts to put that to the test
I dream of her enough when I am not trying to get some rest
