My tired dreaming head
Called her back to my bed
It's not enough to say there are no spaces in between

My tired dreaming head
Painted her whole body red
It's easy to say things are not as simple as they seem

Went to a party Friday night
On the canal
Saw a neon sign
In the shape of a smile
So I interviewed for the job

My tired dreaming head
Made an appointment with my dad
It's nothing to me if you're a figure from a dream

My tired dreaming head
Followed him to the upper deck
And watched Mr. October hit his 500th home run

Went to a party Saturday night night
On the lagoon
Met a surfer who'd lost his sight
I met the man in the moon
So I interviewed for the job

My tired dreaming head
My tired dreaming head
My tired dreaming head
