lyrics

What are you asking for my love?
Though you say nothing
There's a cartoon bubble above
Look at the time we're late again
Roll out of bed, make coffee
My how we like to pretend

Caught in a dream and we're not waking up
Not waking up
Choosing to sleep through the alarm
Through the alarm

Like hummingbirds just hovering
We see in brilliant colors
Drawn to the flowers and trees

Head on the pillow day is done
You're talking nonsense
Making me laugh with your monotone
Seconds away from someplace known
Only to you and me and
A bear with a megaphone
Or the robot with the painted toes
Or a tough boxing kangaroo

Like hummingbirds just hovering
We see in brilliant colors
Drawn to the flowers and trees
Like dolphins playing in the sea
You wave your fin and dive down
I follow you around the deep

Caught a dream
And we're not waking up
Not waking up
Cuz we're gone, yeah baby we're gone
Baby, gone, baby gone

Like hummingbirds just hovering
We see in brilliant colors
Drawn to the flowers and trees
Like dolphins playing in the sea
You wave your fin and dive down
I follow you around the deep
