These Dreams

5 Chinese BrothersBuy this song

Every day I get up and the day begins 
And every day I dig a hole and I fill it in 
People say, "You're crazy, man, now don't you care 
But I know there's treasure buried right down there 
I watch my dreams collect like dirt around a poor boy's neck 

These dreams shine like diamonds 
Down in my soul 
These dreams shine like diamonds 
And I'm digging for coal 

Sometimes it gets so hard to bear 
When people look at me like I'm not even there 
Or ask me what I've got to say 
And nod their heads like it don't matter anyway 
They don't pay me any mind cause I'm too dumb or they're too blind 

I see people get ahead 
Or people eating cake instead of daily bread 
But I ain't got it all that rough 
If dreams don't take me anywhere they seem to take me far enough 
It ain't much but it's okay to sleep all night and dream all day
