Eleyna Dreams

Eleyna Dreams

———————————————
{3/4}
Eleyna drove her car halfway across the river
suspended by steel and the morning mist
dark violet sweeping up under her eyes
an open plastic bottle tight in her fist

she lost track of the clock in early hours
stares out over the water, leans over the edge
ghosts and static calling from her radio
she hums along, she’s always said

 “it’s only a dream if it doesn’t come true
  I like it hear but I hate the view”

{4/4}
 when Eleyna dreams, the sidewalks crack
 the sky is falling on all the boys and girls
 when Eleyna dreams, we’re under attack
 she closes her eyes and sees only the end of the world
{3/4}

Eleyna’s listening for a tidal wave
Crushing inland to swallow our hometown
Can’t keep an eye on the sky at the same time
Shelters only make it easier to drown

  she’s not alive, at least not in the world
  I’d trade my pride if I thought it would reach her

{4/4}
 when Eleyna dreams, the sidewalks crack
 the sky is falling on all the boys and girls
 when Eleyna dreams, we’re under attack
 she closes her eyes and sees only the end of the world

{BRIDGE}

just over the horizon
she’s says that there’s a black sun
i’ve never seen a girl shake like a leaf in the wind
standing in the rain out the back door
she makes me wonder what I’m good for
she says she can’t wait to go sleep again

{3/4 – Prechorus with no words}

{Chorus}
