Track on Tuesday: While We Were Dreaming

Album: Outside Love
Artist: The Pink Mountaintops
Genre: Alternative Rock
Label: Jagjaguwar
Released: 28 April 2009
My Review: I first heard this song in Charlie St. Cloud and stayed all the way through the end of the credits to figure out who had written this lovely tune.  They released this record in 2009 and, after listening to a lot of their other stuff, this one still remains my favorite.  There is just something about the combination of the music and lyrics that really gets to me.  And I still can’t figure out what they’re really singing about. Which is what I love the most.

While you lie on your back
And move through the scars
So careful you are
To surrender a thing

But Jesus ain't comin'
So don't waste your time
Not yours and not mine
You're only dreaming

And while you were scheming
The silver the sheets
Far above the leaves
I snuck into your scene

Don't lie there, lurking
Behind your troubled walls
Wicked as they are
You're not deceiving

And if I could find your heart
I would pull it from your chest
And smash it with my fist
'Til it was beating

And if there's a hole inside
Heaven in your bed
'Cause the angel that you kissed
Just left you bleeding

I know it ain't easy
To keep roundin' on
When the voices in your skull
Are always screaming

Broke into your prison
And dropped the sleeping guards
Painted flowers on the bars
And snuck you out the yard

Paralyzed and gleaming
With visions of new states
We're wrapped in our embrace
While we were dreaming
