lyrics

JEREMY DREAMS OF TIME MACHINES

(for Barbara and Jeremy)

It was forty days and forty nights
I was wandering through the desert alone
This ain’t no fairy tale, I never heard the voice of god
But I’m not complaining cause I found my way home

But I was empty and I was restless
Didn’t know just where I belonged
Familiar things didn’t seem the same
With you gone
And I know I just got back
And so I hate to say, so long
But I gotta go back on the road
Find the place that we went wrong

It rained for forty days, it poured for forty nights
I thought the desert heat was bad but it’s got nothing on the cold
I saw the river rise, I met a whale, got ate alive
But by the time he spit me out I guess I missed that old rainbow

Cause I was empty and I was restless
Didn’t know just where I belonged
All the good things didn’t feel so good
With you gone
And I know I been making excuses now
For way, way, way too long
Could you forgive me
If I never come home?

Bridge:
Cause Jeremy dreams of time machines
(And baseball cards, and space wars, and his best friend’s eyes)
Jeremy dreams of time machines
(And race cars, computer games, and deep blue skies)
But me, I never dream, and if I do
I see earthquakes, and endless wars, and open graves, I don’t see you
So let’s just let him sleep, I know just what he means
He’s just trying to find a way to turn back time
