lyrics

Hey dreamer I was once like you
A whimsy rider with the world as my muse
Kissed my baby every minute or two
Threw caution to the wind and made my own rules
I was gonna be a famous man
Cheers and roses to the stage where I stand
Writing albums by the waves in the sand
Then my best friend died and I changed my plans
So I bought me a suit and tie
Got a career where I work overtime
Pay my bills with the checks I write
And go to sleep early every god damn night

You don't know what you go 'til what you got is gone
You don't know what you're getting 'til you get what you think you want
I chased away somebody in an attempt to right a wrong
Looking back it seems I was right all along

Hey Dreamer, won't you give me some space
I'm tired as hell, and I'm full of complaints
Sorry, baby, but the loving can wait
Cause as long as time's ticking then there's money to make
Gonna be a successful guy
Work my way up on the company line
Pay my debt and buy a house of mine
Then pay that debt back when I'm 65
You say, "Darling, let's go to the beach"
I say, "I'd love to when my schedule is free"
You turn away and throw your gaze at your feet
Then I swivel back to the screen in front of me

You don't know what you go 'til what you got is gone
You don't know what you're getting 'til you get what you think you want
I chased away somebody in an attempt to right a wrong
Looking back it seems I was right all along

Hey Dreamer, now we've said goodbye
All my energy is thrown to the grind
Yours is set upon the open wide
And soon you'll be headed back to Caroline
I swear to something I'm an alright dude
Even though I shook my head at you
Saw your playfulness and care free groove
And brushed it all off as the folly of youth
But I think I want to go to the beach
Burn my schedule with the kindling
Take my suit off and throw it out to the sea
Then reacquaint myself with who I use to be

You don't know what you go 'til what you got is gone
You don't know what you're getting 'til you get what you think you want
I chased away somebody in an attempt to right a wrong
Looking back it seems I was right all along
