Got your tape and it changed my mind 
Heard your voice in between the lines 
Come around from another time 
Where nobody ever goes 

All alone on the overpass 
Wired and phoned to a heart of glass 
Now I'm falling in love too fast 
With you or the songs you chose 

And all the stars 
Play for me 
Say the promise you long to keep 

I can hear you sing it to me in my sleep [Repeat: x1]

I've been living in your cassette 
It's the modern equivalent 
Singing up to a Capulet 
On a balcony in your mind 

In the City the lion sleeps 
Pray to Sony my soul to keep 
Were you ever so bright and sweet 
Did you ever look so nice 

And all the sounds 
Dream for me 

I can hear you sing it to me in my sleep [Repeat: x1]
