The devil's in the dreamin'
He tells you I'm not sleepin' in my hotel room alone
With nothing to believe in you dive into the traffic rising up
And it's so quiet, you're surprised and then you wake

For all the things you're losing
You might as well resign yourself to try and make a change
And I'm going down to Hollywood
They're gonna make a movie from the things
That they find crawling round my brain

I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me
And I could shake this static every time I try to sleep
I wish for all the world that I could say
Hey, Elizabeth, you know I'm doing all right these days

The devil's in the dreamin', you see yourself descending
From the building to the ground
And you watch the sky receding and you spin to see the traffic
Rising up and it's so quiet and you're surprised and then you wake

For all the things I'm losing
I might as well resign myself to try and make a change
And I'm going down to Hollywood
They're gonna make a movie from the things
That they find crawling round my brain

I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me
And I could shake this static every time I try to sleep
I wish for all the world, that I could say
Hey, Elizabeth, you know I'm doing all right these days

And one of these dreams you forgive me
It makes me think of the bad decisions
That keep you at home
How could anyone else have changed

But these are wrong conclusions that leave you alone
How could everyone rearrange
How could everyone else have changed
What I see I believe

For all the things I'm losing
I might as well resign myself to try and make a change
And I'm going down to Hollywood
They're gonna make a movie from the things
That they find crawling round my brain

I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me
And I could shake this static every time I try to sleep
I wish for all the world that I could say
Hey, Elizabeth, you know I'm doing all right these days

Well I can't sleep at night
Well I can't sleep at night
Well I can't sleep at night
Well I can't sleep at night
