Alvvays - Dreams Tonite Lyrics

Rode here on the bus
Now you're one of us
It was magic hour
Counting motorbikes
on the turnpike
One of Eisenhower's

Live your life on a merry-go-round
Who starts a fire just to let it go out?

If I saw you on the street, would I have you in my dreams tonight?
If I saw you on the street, would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight?

On the lead guitar
Said you'd go to work
In the waking hour
In fluorescent light
Antisocialites watch a wilting flower

Live your life on a merry-go-round
Who builds a wall just to let it fall down?

If I saw you on the street, would I have you in my dreams tonight?
If I saw you on the street, would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight?
If I saw you on the street, would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight?
If I saw you on the street, would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight?

Don't sit by the phone for me
Wait at home for me, all alone for me
Your face was supposed to be hanging over me like a rosary
So morose for me; seeing ghosts of me; writing oaths to me
Is it so naive to wonder...

If I saw you on the street, would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight?
If I saw you on the street, would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight?
If I saw you on the street, would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight?
If I saw you on the street, would I have you in my dreams tonight, tonight?

Alvvays Dreams Tonite Comments
  1. yokartik

    it's like a lullaby. i'll definately sing this to my children in the future.

  2. Alexander3487

    This video is amazing, the way they edited the old footage from the Expo 67 is masterfully, it looks seamless. For those who are not from Montreal, the huge sphere that appears in the video was the US pavilion during the Expo and the city kept it, but only the exterior metal structure. Right now we have an environmental museum called la Biosphère. Great song and great images!

  3. Sam Pickles

    Im here,
    because my parents, met here, at Expo '67 in Montreal.
    Thanks moms and pops.

    intemporel génial

  71. Starless Nights Like This

    Happiest sad song ever.


    Whoever likes this will make their wishes come true

  73. Nydeco 123

    The first time I heard this I told my daughter for some reason they remind me of the Smiths, and she told me that's interesting because Alvvays listed the Smiths as one of their biggest influences. Heard it 2 weeks later and I made the same comment not remembering I had said it before. If you're a long time Smiths fan like me, you'll pick up on it. They also remind me of the Cardigans, as someone else already posted.

  74. Anshuman Das

  96. p0lteRg3isT
