Between a Nightmare and a Dream

Listen

There’s a place where every lover will awaken,
Where the tears flow like a raging mountain stream.
Where you’re staring at the bottom of the bottle,
And you’re caught between a nightmare and a dream.

You’ll be hitchin’ down the highway to confusion.
You won’t know if he’s an angel or a fiend.
Yes, the shortest road to hell must lead through heaven,
When you’re caught between a nightmare and a dream.

When you’re caught between a nightmare and a dream,
Your love slips through your fingers and gets trapped between the seams.
You just hope someone’ll pinch so you can wake up with a scream,
When you’re caught between a nightmare and a dream.

He will tell you that his love will last forever,
That his passion is a bright eternal flame,
But the next day, girl, he’ll act like he can’t see you,
It’ll seem like he won’t even know your name.

In your soul you know you can’t survive without him,
Yet he’s bound to be the death of you, it seems.
You just swing from one sad story to another,
When you’re caught between a nightmare and a dream.

When you’re caught between a nightmare and a dream,
Your love slips through your fingers and gets trapped between the seams.
You just hope someone’ll pinch so you can wake up with a scream,
When you’re caught between a nightmare and a dream.
