lyrics

Well I woke from a dream last night
where the hills were in color
and you were made of straw
You just needed one thing
to make you feel better
just needed a brain that would not throw a clot

Well I woke from a dream last night
where the trees were in color
and you were made of tin
You just needed one thing
to make you feel all right
just needed a heart that would not cave in

So I’m ready now, I’m ready now to click my heels three times
Oh are you better? Are you better? Are you all right?
So I’m ready now I’m ready now to click my heels three times
Oh are you better? Are you better? Can we go home?
To before the storm

Well I woke from the dream last night
and the colors faded with the morning
and the world was black and white.
You bore me in August. You thought I’d be strong.
You thought I’d be strong. Well, you thought wrong.
Turns out that I’m just a coward and a liar.

So I’m ready now, I’m ready now to click my heels three times
Oh are you better? Are you better? Are you all right?
So I’m ready now, I’m ready now to click my heels three times
Oh are you better? Are you better? Can we go home?
To before the storm.

Behind curtains
in every hall
are old fools
with blinking machines
who say they know
what you need,
but I know
what you need was lost long ago
in the storm
in the wind
in between
in the dream

So I’m ready now
I'm
I'm ready now
I'm ready now, I am
I'm ready now I'm ready,

can we go?

So I’m ready now, I’m ready now to click my heels and go
Oh are you better? Are you better? Can we go? Can we go?
To before the storm. To before the storm. To before.
