Bat For Lashes - Joe's Dream Lyrics




There's a tear in my lover's eyes
He's at my window, it's a gloomy night
Said he dreamt of God's search light
It remembered his name
Lays his hand gently to my face
Through the promise of wedding lace
And I feel his dark embrace
As my baby, he cries

I'm falling in love
(Don't say goodbye)
I'm falling like a star from above
(Don't say goodbye)
And I finally found my pot of gold
(Don't say goodbye)
And now I can't see just what my heart can hold
But what does it mean?
The bad things that I've seen

He saw angels at his bedroom door
And a body on a checkered floor
There was lightning in his black leather
And it struck out his name
No more tears, baby, please don't cry
I tried to tell him everything is fine
Cross my heart and hope to die
I won't say goodbye

Cause I'm falling in love
(Don't say goodbye)
I'm falling like a star from above
(Don't say goodbye)
And I finally found my pot of gold
(Don't say goodbye)
And now I can't see just what my heart can hold
But what does it mean?
The bad things that I've seen

Oh, what does it mean?
The bad things that I've seen
What does it mean?
The bad things that I've seen

    Fabulous to see Natasha’s new album, stunningly talented and what a lady

  8. euodeio3

    I always needed a little attention
    I don't think I know who I am
    I only know what I don't like
    And these strange days
    Dust is hiding in the corners
    This is our world
    What's too much is never enough
    And the first time is always the last chance
    Nobody sees where we got it
    The killers are free, we are not
    Let's go out but we have no more money
    My friends are all looking for a job
    We go back to living like ten years ago
    And with each passing hour we get ten weeks old
    Come on, fine I just wanna have fun
    Forget it, tonight to have a nice place to go
    We have already delivered the target and artillery
    We compare our lives
    We hope one day
    Our lives can meet
    When I found myself having to live
    With me only and with the world
    You came to me like a good dream
    And I got scared
    I'm not perfect
    I do not forget
    The wealth we have
    No one can figure it out
    And thinking about it all, me, man made
    I was afraid and could not sleep
    Let's go out but we have no more money
    My friends are all looking for a job
    We go back to living like ten years ago
    And with every passing hour
    We aged ten weeks
    Come on, fine I just wanna have fun
    Forget it, tonight to have a nice place to go
    We have already delivered the target and artillery
    We compare our lives
    And yet, I don't pity anyone

  20. Marcelo Oliveira Soares

    There's a tear in my lover's eyes
    He's at my window, it's a gloomy night
    Said he dreamt of God's search light
    It remembered his name

    Lifts his hand gently to my face
    Through the promise of wedding lace
    And I feel his dark embrace
    As my baby, he cries

    I'm falling in love (don't say goodbye)
    I'm falling like a star from above (don't say goodbye)
    And I finally found my pot of gold (don't say goodbye)
    And now I can see just what my heart can hold
    But what does it mean
    The bad things that I've seen?

    He saw angels at his bedroom door
    And a body on a chequered floor
    There was lightning in his black leather
    And it struck out his name

    No more tears, baby, please don't cry
    Try to tell him everything is fine
    Cross my heart and hope to die
    I won't say goodbye

    Cause I'm falling in love (don't say goodbye)
    I'm falling like a star from above (don't say goodbye)
    And I finally found my pot of gold (don't say goodbye)
    And now I can see just what my heart can hold
    But what does it mean
    The bad things that I've seen?

    Oh, what does it mean the bad things that I've seen?
    What does it mean the bad things that I've seen?

  49. desicatz hobbies and dolls

    This song reminds me of a love I lost, and can no longer speak to. It sucks. I never allowed myself to feel bad about it until I listened to this song after forgetting about it for awhile. I love her music.

    And that's when I realised that 4 days ago, I said something I'd said 4 months earlier.

    If you want proof that this whole thing is a simulation, there it is.

  63. Nick Taylor

    I like the way she nearly tips the plant over at the end. That's exactly what I would have done

    Only I would have actually done it. Why? Because that's the kind of guy I am.

    My first year of college , i was lonely as fuck ,completely new town, didnt know anyone and no girlfriend. All my free time i would spend to get high and listen Bat for Lashes. It help me to not kill myself. I would build a monument to this girl if i could.

  78. Garret Thomas

    Such calm grace in this music 🙏❤

  79. Tran Lily

    Her rendition voice sounding fit so well with melody. It's like rhythm. Some scene in the dark with bang black hair, she look a bit alike...Lily Allens

  80. Tran Lily

    Her voice is so calm, beautiful song & voice.
    But I don't understand the song, don't speak well English. Can't hear all whole song, unless with English lyric sub LOL :))
    I'm her after watching this song playing on Channel V!!!

  82. silverbaal

    This album is so precious. Stellar from beginning to end. I'm gonna say what I said a few months ago, it's like a marriage between Kate Bush and Dario Argento (visually/musically). There's an element of horror to it. It's dark yet hopeful.

  87. Anhedonia Again

    David Lynch would love Natasha Khan. Then again, I've always thought the video for What's a Girl to Do? had a strong Lynch/Kubrick influence.

  88. Nick Taylor

    If that'd been me, I think I'd have actually knocked over the vase at the end.

  89. David Koval

    Mimicking the Robert Palmer Video This Girls a Genius

  90. Greensky02

    I have to just say that I was disappointed in the new album as a whole. This song was good, and I liked "I Will Love Again". That's it though. Really didn't dig the other tracks at all.

  95. Sigcino Ndlela

    love this song,what is this genre guys?

  96. hcr

    The guitar evokes Twin Peaks, gives me an image of a rippling reflection on a lake. I often get lost in this song. And though I've never had a long lasting relationship with anyone, this album makes me turn around and think of the romantic relationship I have with myself, the times I failed in being my own hero - and how part of me symbolically died leaving the other part helpless but stronger in time.

    Jason Bacon

    hcr Very well put, and I wholeheartedly concur, with your statement and the Lynchian vibe. This is truly amazing music.

    Mekintoš Larja

    "a body on a checkered floor" direct Twin Peaks reference
