Lyrics

This is not the real world
Though I truly wish that it was
You turning on my pillow
New moon turning with you

Hands on hearts in the dark
Hands on hearts in the dark

I am not the bravest man
Though I sometimes
Dream that I am
Me taking bullets for you
Pictures all over the evening news

Hand on heart in the dark
Hand on heart in the dark

And I wish
There was a chip
Deep inside my head
That screened out all the ugliness And let the beauty in instead
All of the cheap magazines
And crappy tv shows
All of the has-beens
And I-don’t-knows
I’d stick ‘em in a boat
And push ‘em all out to sea
There’d be just nice people left
Like you and me

This is not the real world
And if it’s not
Then what really is
Interrogating my pillow
Which is the one I should follow

Head or heart in the dark
Head or heart in the dark

This is not the real world
This is not the real world
