    Lyrics

    Nice girls are writing in journals
    Things they wish they'd done
    And all their bad sisters are walking high wires
    Counting the days in a month
    The awful truth doesn't bear thinking
    Nor does the half-baked lie
    They get their hopes dirty once in a while
    Wash them and hang them to dry
    Everyone's down except for the clowns
    And noah don't know where to go
    It's hell up in heaven, there's nothing much here
    And all the real men are below

    What happens when dreams come true?
    Will we know what to do
    When our dreams come true?

    So a saviour rolls in past the big sign
    That says "strangers - please turn round"
    The men tie him up to a feeding post
    And take his credentials down
    The sun beats rays on our salad days
    His lips get parched and dry
    The girls bring him drink with a giggle and a wink
    And his moment of glory expires

    What happens when dreams come true?

    Will we know what to do
    When our dreams come true?

    Mr.sandman can't believe it
    He thought he gave them what they needed
    You couldn't get no higher
    Than a handsome dark messiah
    But he's got one more trick up his sleeve,
    Before he gives up once again

    A siren goes off as she walks in
    As the cowboy lies dying in the dust
    She walks through the room where the gentlemen gather
    Surrounded by debris and rust
    She smoulders and steams, straight out of their dreams
    But no-one will talk to her first
    Big words are just words
    They're small and absurd
    She leaves and we all die of thirst

    What happens when dreams come true?
    Will we know what to do
    When our dreams come true?
