Frank Turner lyrics : "I Am Disappeared"

I keep having dreams
Of pioneers and pirate ships and Bob Dylan
Of people wrapped up tight in the thing that'll kill them

Of being trapped in a lift plunging straight to the bottom
Of open seas and ways of life we've forgotten
I keep having dreams


Amy worked in a bar in Exeter
I went back to her house and I slept beside her

She woke up screaming in the middle of the night
Terrified of her own insides
Dreams of pirate ships and Patty Hearst

Breaking through a life of a rehearse
She can't remember which came first
The house the home or the terrible thirst

She keeps having dreams

And on the worst days

When it feels like life weighs ten thousand tonnes
She's got her cowboy boots and her keys on the bed stand
So she can always run

She can get up and shower in half an hour
She'd be gone


I keep having dreams of things I need to do
Of waking up and not following through
It feels like I haven't slept at all

When I wake to a silence and she's facing the wall
Posters of Dylan and Hemingway
An antique compass for a sailor's escape

She says you just can't live this way
I close my eyes and never say
I'm still having dreams


And on the worst days
When it feels like life weighs ten thousand tonnes

I sleep with my passport
One eye on the back door
So I can always run

I can get up and shower in half an hour
And be gone


And come morning
I am disappeared
Just an imprint

On the bed sheets

And by the roadside

With my thumb out
A car pulls up
And boasts driving

So I climb in
We don't say a word
As we pull off

Into the sunrise
And these rivers
Of tarmac

Are like arteries
'Cause the country
We are blood cells

Alive in
The blood stream
And beating heart of the country

We are electric
Pulses
In pathways

Of the sleeping soul of the country
We are electric
Pulses

In the pathway
Of the sleeping soul of the country
(We are electric)
