Velveteen Lyrics

Velveteen by Kidney Thieves  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Velveteen Woke of from the raddest dream,
There were purple skies and we all could fly
And there were neon signs
Where our hearts reside
Saying, 'You are welcome here, any time'
I was hypnotized and I opened my eyes,
Put on my face and then I hit the drive
With the swerves, swerves, swerves of my life
And the turns, turns, turns of my life
And I asked:
'Why did I wake up from this dream, oh?
Am I a minnow on this stream, no?
Why did I wake up from this dream, oh?'
Things aren't exactly what they seem.

When you see the velveteen and nothing more
It's a beautiful strange world if you see it like a distant star.
Walking along today looking single-file,
Cartwheels in my mind as I crack a smile
Oh, there you were,
You said the illest things like
'I know how you feel and I feel the same'.
Then a tear dropped out of the corner of my eye,
In the happiest way to know that you're alive
With the swerves, swerves, swerves of my life,
The beautiful turns, turns, turns of my life and I said:
'Don't wanna wake up from this day, oh.
Are we as rare as the desert rain, yeah?'
Don't wanna wake up from this day, oh.'
Then you took my hand and we flew away.

When you see the velveteen and nothing more
It's a beautiful strange world if you see it like a distant star.

When you see the velveteen and nothing more
It's a beautiful strange world that we live in
What is real, always changing
And when you feel like you're standing in the middle of the ocean
And the light of the stars shine the dream.

When you see the velveteen and nothing more
It's a beautiful strange world if you see it like a distant star.

When you see the velveteen and nothing more
It's a beautiful strange world if you see it like a distant star.
