Elvis Costello - "When Did I Stop Dreaming?" lyrics

You appeared when I was lost in reverie
If this is not a dream, it's my mistake
And now I lie in wait for dawn to break
I'm fairly sure I'm wide awake

Pardon me, if I seem distant and strange
Just tell me when did I stop dreaming'
Let me get this straight
Did I hallucinate'
This fine and helpless feeling
Tell me when did I stop dreaming'

Let me know if you can help me explain
I didn't recognise the danger
But people will talk
Was I just sleepwalking'
Footprints left on the ceiling
Tell me when did I stop dreaming'

Then why should you care'
This is my nightmare
Was this one dream too deep'
Now if I could only sleep

Answer me, if you see the end in sight
I'm just a soul who's lost in limbo
Neither bad or good
I'd spare you now if I could
One more teardrop
Then I'll wake up
Tell me when did I stop dreaming'
