about

from the album "The Dreamer."

lyrics

She was a genius
She won awards and stuff
I was intimidated
She had a prominent nose
She took off all her clothes
I was infatuated

The love we'd share would go no where
But it would be none the less
The time we spent I don't know where it went

We took the monorail
We had a pint of ale
I got a little buzz on
Her movie made me cry
I could not tell her why
Might be the pills I was on

I long to be the man that she
Wanted to be with
The time we spent I don't know where it went

Don't mind me
I'm just sleep walking
Sleep walking
Don't mind me

The night you broke it off I had a lousy cough
I had no strength to argue
I knew I'd rue the day I let you slip away
My genius, where are you

The love we had was small and sad
Like everything in my life
The time we spent I don't know where it went

Don't mind me
I'm just sleep walking,
Sleep walking
Don't mind me
I'm just sleep walking,
Sleep walking
Don't mind me
I'm just sleep walking,
Sleep walking
Don't mind me
