Orton, Beth - Live As You Dream Lyrics




If there's something you wanna do
You'll know when you've seen it through
Yeah, we live as we dream alone
But that's not all you've ever known

Stop, look, listen I can find you
I've been standing right beside you
You don't have to remind me
I know and I won't let go

And if you've taken me for someone who cares
Then there's a dream I know we both have shared
If I talked to you after all's been done
I know we'll find home where ever we've gone
You're not the only one

But there's something I wanna show
Though not sure that I should do
So while we live all our dreams for free
But that's not all they ever could be

Stop look listen I can find you
I've been standing right beside you
You don't have to remind me
I know and I won't let go

And as I've taken you for someone who cares
Then there's a dream I know we both have shared
If you talk to me after what's been said
Then I know there's a home where ever we live
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

And if you've taken me for someone who cares
Then there's a dream I hope we both can share
If I talk to you after what's been said
Well you'll admit there's home where ever we live
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

We live as we dream alone
But that's not all we've shown
We live as we dream alone
And that's not all we've known
We live as we dream alone
That's not all you've shown

Orton, Beth Live As You Dream Comments
  1. matthew stetson

    Initially thought this to mean, you're not the only one as if the author was chastising her friend. Should have known Ms. Orton meant we're in this together, what with the upbeat tone that's so uplifting.

  2. sküll düggery

    it's just so cool on so many levels.

  3. Daniel Myers

    "We live as we dream, alone." - Joseph Conrad, "Heart of Darkness" - Literate gal!

  4. WillieWagglestick

    Love this.  Very under-rated.

  5. Martin Hennessy

    Yes this is a jolly song.

  6. Phil Wile

    Listened to this on my way to work this morning. Cheered me right up. One of many brilliant Beth Orton songs,

  7. HunterSThompsonFan

    This is a VERY under-heard song and one of those that I put on when I want to brighten up. Its' one of those I play to impress people like when they play 'Dry The Rain' by The Beta Band in High Fidelity. "I will now sell five copies of Trailer Park by Beth Orton" Anyone here exploring her music: Just buy Trailer Park. It is amazing.

  8. Reynaldo González

    Love this one specially, thanks....
