Aimee Mann - Nightmare Girl Lyrics




I'm distilling everything she said into a potion
But it's always going to my head in slow motion
Oh nightmare girl

Things are getting weirder
At the speed of light
Nightmare girl
All this fever dreaming kills my appetite
For love and restless nights

Once she wanted me to exercise her self-possession
And then failing that she wanted lives and vivisection
Oh nightmare girl

Things are getting weirder
At the speed of light
Nightmare girl
All this fever dreaming kills my appetite
For love and restless nights

I'm on a train to Brooklyn
I'm on the IRT
I've gotta think I'm saving the day
I get a call in the night
I get a call at three
I gotta go and make it OK

'Cause things are getting weirder at the speed of light
Nightmare girl
All this fever dreaming kills my appetite
Nightmare girl

Things are getting weirder
Things are getting weirder
Things are getting weirder

    She's no Nightmare Girl!  Who's nightmare girl?  I have no ex-girlfriends who were Nightmare Girl.  Although one comes close...

    Searching a random sentence on youtube made me end up here. This is actually a pretty good song!

    MisterGolfer

    Do you remember what the sentence was?

    CounterNerd

    @MisterGolfer
    Nope. I think it was pretty much completely random and nonsensical.

    Were's my next nightmare girl? Oh no not Anne Greene from Trumbell-that's a good one I blacked out in made up bar on a date that never happened. Whew-you can't make that stuff up-enjoy your time missy.

  11. paul elliott

    Her music is magical - this is a beautiful song, so many great lines and the dreaming kills my appetite ... Gotta get the two disc version of this album !

  12. woooudo

  13. hymencow

  14. 2passnthru2

  15. wayneaviator

    what the hell

  16. 45anew

    Yep...it's a nightmare ...for a nightmare girl...with a beautiful song, in a messed up world...Sweet Song! Love Aimee~

  17. Jay Osborne

    for me, really, its near on impossible to pick a favourite song of Aimee's, everytime i think, yeh, thats the best, i listen to the next in my collection of her tracks and think to myself, actually, no, i like this one best. but when i really think about it, i probably listen to nightmare girl the most. the lost in space album/special edition, is my most listend to album and nightmare girl is definately up there with humpty dumpty, the scientist, lost in space, invisible ink& its not.

  18. bacholerno2

    @beerbrain420 I totally agree about it not fitting. I read in an interview Aimee Mann said that Lost in Space was the sort of album she expected to see a rejected girl listening to on her prom night whilst sitting in her window (strange ;p). Somehow I don't think this fits the mood. The lyrics arn't necessarily happy but the song almost feels upbeat... Like something good is coming.

  19. Philmod68

    Awesome song....love it!
