Rilo Kiley - Dreamworld Lyrics

She was the girl with the string around her neck,
With the boy who could only give her less.
It could be more if she learned to never expect,
And now she's her and him and then a baby next.

The wedding bells won't ring, but she couldn't care less,
You exist, when you're living in a dream world.

He grew up drinking milk from the cow, from the farm.
He was the traitor's father's father's father.
His father made him go give back to his country.
He gave his both knees, his overseas to fight the disease.

It's spreading fast over maps and it don't look back,
When you're living in a dream world.

It is a lion's science fiction wings,
Just like a jolly dizzy for zero, one, three times
The size of the people that came before.
Me and you and what we'd do for money.

This greed and jealousy turn to need.
See, I'm a man with a plan to use my hands.
I'm touching yours, you're the girl who wanted more.
Now baby, the story has faded from love to lie.

The clover under your feet is shooting stars in the night.
The people under your feet are shooting stars in the night.
The people, all that you meet, they're living in a dream world

    How my hopes were dashed when they broke up! They were the next Fleetwood Mac! If you haven't, check out her album, The Voyager! Another favorite!

    Have you noticed how many artists/celebrities who complain about equality are the only female in a band surrounded by males, and how they capture centre position in every photo shoot, and how they dress as princesses in order to capture attention? If you want equality, act like it. You don't get to complain about "being one of the guys" while deliberately ensuring that you don't have female competition in the band.

    Great song. Mesmerizing.

  6. Lynz Ramish

    The vocals remind me of Arcade Fire a little

    So there I am outside World Market contemplating whether to go in or not. My wife wanted to look at home decor stuff so I trudge in.
    Looking around not much catches my eye. They had some pop music blaring and I tune it out. Next song comes on and I zone in on the bass and guitar melody. Me likey. I am now trying to figure out the lyrics when "Memorial day sale..blah blah" cuts in over the speakers. Start to panic as I might not find out the tune. I check where the speakers are and hear " in a dreamworld..." and then it cuts out AGAIN to more store announcements. I grab my phone, punch up y/t and kaboom. This wonderful tune pops up.

    Moral of the story? Do what your wife wants

    when you're living in a dreamworld...
    This song is just amazing. I feel kind of dissapointed that I don't like their other songs at all...

    Kristin McKeever

    Anna Michalčáková even from their other albums?

    I'm riding the train back to our home in Switzerland, leaving Milano. I've never felt so much a resident of a dream world as this moment

  17. Charles Goodson

    At least it's a good song. Imagine having to listen to Bieber and Rhianna for hours a day if you had to work there.

  20. NailsInYourCoffin

    I'm a Thrash Metal fan through and through, but every now and then something else just catches my ear. Great song!
