Yesterday’s blush and last night’s clothes are clinging to my skin. They say Don’t leave us yet, we’ve got stories we could still tell. They’ve got words enough for all of us. Mine lie dormant on my tongue. We were the dreaming kids. We were the visionaries. We were the silent ones. The world still heard our fury. Sunshine come and say hello like that day when we first met. And we would forcibly expose our hearts to fight off sleep. Wooden floors would creak above our thoughts and pay no mind to all we’d ask of them. They’d only whisper in return Ah, ah, ah. Soul beneath, you’ve endured all my feet have asked of you. And we, we move from town to town to town to town. Shelter me crooked tree. They have learned how to hang so well from your limbs that cascade across across across my life. They were the dreaming kids. They were the visionaries. They were the silent ones. But I can still hear their fury. They're crying Ah, ah, ah. Travel on. Leave it all. Yesterday and all those nights are clinging to me. I can hear all my friends crying Please don’t leave us. I’ve got words that I can’t speak but I feel them moving. They’ll float right out my lips and press themselves against yours. How’m I a silent one if my heart’s beating loud and hard for all of you? You are the Dreaming Kids.
