A DREAM

He looks like you

And he laughs like you

In every situation he knows what to do

But he isn’t true

No he isn’t you

He’s just a dream

 

He’s tall like you

And he talks like you

Offers glimpses of a free place

To escape to, just we two,

But he isn’t you

And he isn’t true

He’s just a dream

 

Got your eyes got your hair

Got the specs that you wear

Got that myopic stare

That can catch you unaware

Turn your stomach around

And your world upside down

Not one long threatened goodbye

He isn’t that kind of guy

He doesn’t boast, doesn’t lie

Isn’t slippery or sly

And he’d never let me down.

 

He looks like you

And he laughs like you

In every situation he knows just what to do

But he isn’t true

No he isn’t you

He’s just a dream
