about

Inspired by a moment on a dance floor when the bottom fell out, and everything changed.

lyrics

Lost my reason on the dance floor on a sultry summer night,
took a turn to Billie Holiday and dared to hold you tight.
Standing at the edge, you say, "It's gonna be all right.
Baby, don't you let the dream go down, go down."

Swapping songs for cigarettes underneath a summer moon,
we watch each other moving to an easy autumn tune.
Now every time I turn around, it seems that I'll be leaving soon,
but don't you let the dream go down, go down.

I can almost touch it now.
Can't you see me reaching out?
Mustn't ever let this fire go out.
Baby, don't you let the dream go down.

Crazy is how things have been
underneath my selkie skin
ever since you let me in.
Baby, don't you let the dream go down.

Perhaps I'm steering sideways 'cause I haven't got a clue,
just another dreamer with an awful lot to prove.
I only know I love you, and I love the way you move.
Baby, don't you let the dream go down, go down

Like my reason on the dance floor on a sultry summer night.
Took a turn to Big Bad Gina and I dared to hold you tight.
Standing at the edge, I guess it better be all right.
Baby, don't you let the dream go down, go down.
Baby, don't you let the dream go down.
