Early in the day I take a walk to Leonard’s place
Where a sinner made salvation from some colored paints
You can send your letters but it’s better if you take
Yourself over to the mountain and you shake

We believe in our dreams
And then I forget

I was dropping tears for some dead man I never knew
Right into the hands his mother gave me
Each time I remember it just covers up the truth
One more layer on the mountain painted new

We believe in our dreams
And then I forget

Out there in the desert you got lost and feared for dead
Only to be found so you could go and die again
All my careless whispers they just echo off your hands
In the shadow of the mountain made by a man

We believe in our dreams
And then I forget
