or
Sinéad O'Connor

Time goes by
I fall out of touch
I can't explain
Why I fall so much
I bought a pack of cigarettes
Sent an old Elvis stamp to your new address
The weather's here
With showers, fine
Wish that you could read between the lines

Cause you dream in colors by night
Rose and black and blue
I'll send a postcard
Oh how
I wish that I were you

I wish I were you
Cause I am nothing
You are more
Than flesh and blood
A golden door
Let me come inside of you
Let me do the things I want to do
Now take me down to where you live
And take the things I cannot give

Cause you dream in colors by night
Rose and black and blue
I'll send a postcard
Oh how
I wish that I were you

Cause you are like the ocean
I'm a river that's run dry
If you cannot reach me
All my white flowers
They will die
Now take me down to where you live
Take the things I cannot give

Cause you dream in colors by night
Rose and black and blue
I'll send a postcard
Oh how
I wish that I were you
