Billy Talent - Pocketful Of Dreams Lyrics




Vanities are only charity
And she makes donations at the Tiffany's,
Life is hard without a credit card to get by, get by
She sold her dreams for security
To a man that now she hardly ever sees
With a cold martini in her hand, she don't mind, don't mind

So throw all your luxuries aside
You can't take them with you when you die
Still when I look into your
Eyes are full of dollar signs
Oh, reach, into a pocketful of dreams
Oh, now, before they fall out of the seams
Oh, take a chance, don't matter if you fail
you're too scared to try cause you might break a nail, oh

If you design a plastic happiness,
Then climb the social ladder to the top my friend,
And don't forget to thank the piggy bank in the sky, so high

So throw all your luxuries aside
You can't take them with you when you die
Still when I look into your
Eyes are full of dollar signs,
Oh, reach, into a pocketful of dreams
Oh, now, before they fall out of the seams
Oh, take a chance, don't matter if you fail
you're too scared to try cause you might break a nail
Oh, reach, into a pocketful of dreams
Oh, now, before they fall out of the seams
Oh, take a chance, don't matter if you fail
you're too scared to try cause you might break a nail, oh

Woah-oh-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh-oh

Oh, reach, into a pocketful of dreams
Oh, now, before they fall out of the seams
Oh, take a chance, don't matter if you fail
you're too scared to try cause you might break a nail

Oh, reach, into a pocketful of dreams
Oh, now, before they fall out of the seams
Oh, take a chance, don't matter if you fail
you're too scared to try cause you might break a nail

Oh, reach, into a pocketful of dreams
Oh, now, before they fall out of the seams
Oh, take a chance, don't matter if you fail
you're too scared to try cause you might break a nail

Oh, reach, into a pocketful of dreams
Oh, now, before they fall out of the seams
Oh, take a chance, don't matter if you fail
you're too scared to try cause you might break a nail, oh

  3. LIDIA JOANA

    cuando me ponía a cantar como loca en la escuela y todos me veían con envidia😒✔😘

  4. Gurre Kurre

    still here.....

    HastyMaxy

    Just got back today after a while still gives goosebumps

  5. danny chandler

    THEEE blazing fire in my soul spreading fire across my aging flesh as I eat a golden apple swallowing it whole
    Drawn by hope filed by rage I will not fall I will keep up the pace forevermore as the crow ignores me

    Not a word ever spoken to me by the old one-eyed raven but one word ignoring the dishonored



    My heart beats with a deadly thump and thump again my through rages with pain while my sadness fleas the light as I fall in love with the melancholy sky my soul d out of the green fiery pit resisting death and dying



    As I fight for myself as fight to hold out my hand from the straight jacket to the other whose flame does smolder but the jacket is pure cotton Despite it all all of you will by me never be forgotten.

    mentalist 101 a badly written song free to a good song writer

  6. joao torrezani de carvalho

    The you with of fall on fallen and my social we a look scarred break

  7. Jason Elford

    I broke all my nails. I ain't even gay!

  8. Portable Slave

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this isn't quite "Diamond on a Landmine"

  9. Melanie Grace

    When you say this is diamond on a landmine tho??

  10. Saro Uchiha

    I fell bad for just finding this band. Or artist

  11. Franco PSN

    its from billy talent song the phenomenal star

  12. strayth caldwell

    one of my favourite song

    vaperx420

    strayth caldwell my old acc

  13. Dave Cochrane

    Nah, musically too lightweight. Annoying voice, and corny lyrics too.
    Apart from that I fucking loved it. 😒

    Sir Xhatann

    The voice's just punk
    I dont know what corny is supposed to mean but I guess you mean that, what I would call edgy
    and I think that this ighthearted style is perfect for the song, is symbols the live they choose....

    Dave Cochrane

    By 'corny' I meant predictable, pedestrian, unoriginal. By 'lightweight' I meant musically uninteresting, unsophisticated, throwaway, disposable, unsubstantial, safe.

    Naverich

    Dave Cochrane what are your favourite songs from BT lol? This song is legit...not the best still very good

  14. strayth caldwell

    gold diggers

  15. Alexander Motley

    My grandma.

  16. Brandon Proudman

    Awesome! Shades of Green Day. 

  17. The Phenomenal Raven

    Pretty sure this isn't Diamond on a Landmine...

    inari the fox

    I'm not that sure about that

    Luna

    It isnt Diamond on a Landmine

    Cabose

    Is there like some inside joke going on here?

    Bult Vid

    @Cabose Read the video description

    Cabose

    @Bult Vid oh.....

  18. Yousif M.a

    This song is a reference to "Gold diggers"

    Graceclaw

    @Yousif M.a I don't really think so haha. It's about the corporate grind/the mentality that we have in America of settling down and not actually pursuing what we're passionate about.

    AtzederSerbe

    @Graceclaw war and greed? :-) Just joking xD

  19. Yousif M.a

    LONG LIVE BILLY TALENT

    Yorpex

    Wow, edgy

  21. KMM

    actually, you can take your luxuries with you when you die

    am god

    @Rass Berri That doesn't change the argument that Heaven doesn't make sense. The idea of Heaven would be a total "location" shift of the consciousness into a different plane of existence.

    xXKittyLoverXx

    +Kiri no Kuragari dude if you fuckin die you are fuckin dead, enjoy your life

    am god

    @DieToxischenFotzen No fuckin' shit. That's exactly what I said.

    Actually breaking your nail is extremely painful, as your sensitive skin gets exposed and you use your fingers to touch stuff and do stuff!

  56. Morgan Caruk

  57. Breanna A

    @Avantgantamos
    You used big words? You must be quite the linguist.
    And it seems you don't know what 'reply' is, do you?

  58. CliShay

    @BleedingHeart659

    Hmm i wonder, does your putrid diction stem from you being a pariah? Or is it that you are just flagrantly egregious by nature?
    (note the big words if you are even smart enough to comprehend this text)

  59. CliShay

    @Marshalrox

    Aww you took the time out of you're busy schedule to say something immature and idiotic. Thank you! You're so sweet!

  60. marshalrox

    calm the fuck down you insecure queer your fucking adopted

  61. YouuKnowYouuLoveMe

    lol @ this avantagantamos chick, just stfu and enjoy the song. if you arent smart enough to figure out what the song is, go look it up somewhere else instead of starting shit. thanks.

  62. Breanna A

    @Avantgantamos

    Oh, aren't you just so effing cool! Talking like that to an anonymous 15 year old on youtube for pointing out something completely obvious!

    (Note the sarcam, if you aren't smart enough to understand that~)

  63. CliShay

    @BleedingHearts659
    Aww, how sweet of you to take the time to pull your finger out of your ass and start up an old argument that wasn't even between you and I. Thank you :)

  64. Breanna A

    Those aren't the same accounts, you idiot

  65. Axsin13

    you'd never think a song called "pocket full of dreams' would be this badass

  66. Nicolas

    @MultiStarwars22 pffff tell that to the heavenly mcdonalds (they serve mcribs year round)

  82. Steven Stewart

    I don't see much need for greed, I can see a lot of warring companies who just want to take your money. Where does money go when you die? If you answered back to the circulation you are right, money doesn't come with you into the afterlife.

  83. Alfred Aprianto Liaunardi

    ... THAT she makes donations at the DIFFERENT MEANS ....
    That's the real one (if your ear is still good lol!)
