John Davey – Q Lyrics

You appeared in my dream last night for a while
That old look on your face, said without a smile
That you thought we should talk for an hour or two
But my friends were waiting, so I did not indulge you

But we walked to the train
Shoe in front of shoe
Not even wandering through those how-do-you-dos

Forensic, intrinsic
I’m hoping you’re joking

You reviewed it so well
In your voice, I could tell
That you practiced in front of a mirror or wishing well

I woke with a start
Rubbed my eyes, looked around
Realized I was awake and alive in some other town

Specific, horrific
I’m thinking we’re sinking

All around me, people falling, people calling
Asking if I knew then what I know now
I saw your brother on a fluke one time when he came through
And he was askin’ if it happened
I wondered if I ever knew at all
On and on, the days are long gone
Injunctions spoke, rang true
As far as I can see, the sky keeps opening up in front of you

Daylight streams through
God, it’s good to be alive on your own dime
Unwholesome, unholy
All this holding on too tight
I’m a live wire on fire
It’s true
