Dreams Of Our Fathers Lyrics

Dreams Of Our Fathers by Dave Matthews  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Dreams Of Our Fathers I'm choking, I'm choking
On the smoke from this burning house
I claw and I scrape
But I can't seem to get out

But who them, who is this?
That's scratching from the ground
Oh it's my world too
But who's gold is this I'm digging out?

When we go, where we go
When we're dead
Is the verdict still out?
Do we get into line
To line up with those long dead now?

With the muffled tears of sorrow
Bones underground
Is this time our time? Yes it is
Without or with this shadow of doubt

I don't want to wake up
Lost in the dreams of our fathers
Oh it's such a waste child
To live and die for the dreams of our fathers

Though I must confess, yes
My view is of wonder about this
This love I possess love
Must be the dreams of our fathers

I wanna go, I wanna run
We turn so sure someone's looking down
It's haunting me, haunting me
Leaves us here to get out

Though I don't believe, I don't believe
This flavor in my mouth
Is from my tongue alone
So bitter, I wanna spit it out

I repeat these words, they come out
Under the blue light in this sky
My empty pages are filling up
With these wicked lies

But I hear deep in myself
An echo and echo
Of empty empty emptiness
Comes up and swells inside

I don't want to wake up
Lost in the dreams of our fathers
Oh it's such a waste child
To live and die for the dreams of our fathers

Though I must confess, yes
My view is of wonder about this
This love I possess love
It must be the dreams of our fathers

Rain on my head, rain on my head
Rain on me and then give me up
Rain on my love, again and again
Why can't I dream you away from me?

Look a here, look a here
Bloated, floating, go belly down
Belly up in the water
But who is this here that drowned?

We followed a drunken man
He's got us all spinning ‘round
But it's like he swallowed himself
And didn't leave us a way out

I don't want to wake up
Lost in the dreams of our fathers
Oh it's such a shame child
To live and die for the dreams of our fathers

Though I must confess, yes
My view is of wonder about this
This love I possess love
It must be the dreams of our fathers

This love I possess love
It must be the dreams of our fathers
This love I possess love
It must be the dreams of our fathers

This love I posses love
It must be the love of our fathers

This love I possess love
