  Time Out of Mind sessions, Criteria studios, Miami FL - January 1997, BS8 version  

The light in this place is really bad
Like bein' in the bottom of a stream
Any minute now, 
I'm expecting to wake up from a dream.

Means so much the softest touch
By the grave of some child
Who neither wept nor smiled
I've pondered my faith in the rain.

I been dreamin' of you that's all i do
An' it's drivin' me insane.

Somewhere dawn is breakin'
Light is streakin' 'cross the floor
Church bells are ringin'
I wonder who they're ringin' for.

Travel under any star
You'll see me wherever you are
The shadowy past is so vague and so vast
I'm sleepin' in the balance of pain.

I been dreamin' of you that's all i do
But it's drivin' me insane.

Maybe they'll get me, maybe they won't
But whatever it won't be tonight
I wish your hand was in mine right now
We could go where the moon is white.

For years they had me locked in a cage
Then they threw me onto the stage
Some things just last longer then you thought they would
And they're never ever explained.

I'm dreamin' of you that's all i do
An' it's driving me insane.

Well i eat when i'm hungry, drink when I'm dry
Live my life on the square
Even if the flesh falls off my face
It won't matter, long as you're there.

Feel like a ghost in love
Underneath the heavens above
Feel further away then i ever did before
Feel further than i can take.

Dreamin' of you, that's all i do
But it's driving me insane.

Everything in the way is so shiny today
A queer and unusual form
Spirals of golden haze here an' there in a blaze
Like beams of light in a storm.

Maybe you're here or maybe you weren't
Maybe you touched somebody and got burned
The silent sun has got me on the run
Burnin' a hole in my brain.

I'm dreamin' of you that's all i do
But it's driving me insane.  up
