Dreaming in Reverse by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Every time I’m dreaming my dream I’m back on that bus to Detroit
With every tear drop that falls away goes a little bit more of that noise
The rain turns to sleet, though, and freezing rain puts a nice sheet of ice round my heart
And this soul grows weary I think it quite clearly can no longer get a cold start

The roar of those tires found pavement on down
These muffled old headphones don’t drown out the sound
All of those things you said on that day saved my revenant soul
What a lie you became

Every time you knew I’d be there, and all of that time I guess you didn’t care
You knew I loved blind and loved unaware, and now it’s your soul that’s the cross that I bare

The roar of those tires found pavement on down
These muffled old headphones don’t drown out your sound
All of those things that you said on that day gave me unabashed hope
What a lie you became

The patience I lack is the patience for fate, I’m foolishly locked in a warp speed like wait
I feel like I’m tip toeing right off this globe, I spin outta control and just hope I’m not thrown

‘Cause the roar of the tires found pavement on down
My muffled old headphones don’t drown out the sounds
All of those things you said on that day saved my revenant soul
What a lie you became

All of those things you said on that day put a noose round my throat
What a lie you became
