Never Dreams
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
I never wanted to be
A cartoon caper
I never wanted to live
With a smile like you
I never wanted to see
How happy a boy can be
I never wanted to fly
As high as I do, yeah

I never wanted to laugh
When you told me to cry
I never wanted to slide
Just far enough to wave goodbye
I've been up and down
On my runaway train
I never wondered why
Cause I'm the only one to blame
I've been to the edge
Is all that I can say
I try to win the game
That my my mind don't want to play
I took the soft from the torn-up heart
Then jumped on just for a ride
I turn to cry but I don't know why
Gotta hide cause a boy's gotta have his pride

When I'm all alone
All I wanted to do was hold your hand
When I'm all alone
All I wanted to do was hold your hand tonight
Take a look at the sky
It's turning blue
Take a look at the sky tonight and
When I'm all alone
All I wanted to do was hold your hand

I never wanted to be
A cartoon caper
I never wanted to live
With a smile like you
I never wanted to see
How happy, how happy a boy can be
I never wanted to fly
As high as, as high as I do, yeah
Hey oh, hey oh
Hey oh, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oo
Never Dreams is the first track on the original Last Wish tape, The Rooftop Sessions.  It is a bouncy song with the trademark Last Wish guitar, with odd lyrics that seem to work somehow.
