Paramore's Hayley Williams Reveals The Personal Lyrics To Upcoming Song "Daydreaming"



Earlier this week Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams took to the band's LiveJournal account (people still use those?!) to address her fans and preview the lyrics to a track that will be on Paramore's upcoming album. The song, called "Daydreaming" was written by Williams about a time in her life right before the band moved to LA to record their forthcoming album. She was feeling restless and depressed and like she needed a change, but looking back she says it was a time of growth and experience. "We all need a little perspective sometimes," explains Williams in her note to fans, "To stand back and really get what we're right in the middle of." That's what "Daydreaming" is about. Read on for the lyrics:

Daydreaming

"Living in a city of sleepless people
Who all know the limits and won't go too far outside the lines
Cause they're' out of their minds.
I wanna get out and build my own home
On a street where reality is not much different from dreams I've had
A dream is all I have...


Daydreaming
Daydreaming all the time
Daydreaming
Daydreaming into the night
And I'm alright

Creep past the hours like the shorter hand on the clock
hanging on a wall of a schoolhouse somewhere
We wait for the bell
And we dream of somewhere else

Daydreaming
Daydreaming all the time
Daydreaming
Daydreaming into the night
And I'm alright

Not that I won't remember where I'm from
Just don't wanna be here no more
It's not enough
(We're only half alive)
I'm gonna go
(We're only half alive)
Where the rest of the dreamers go

Where the dreamers go

Daydreaming
Daydreaming all the time
Daydreaming
Daydreaming into the night
And I'm alright

Daydreaming
Daydreaming all the time
Daydreamer
We used to be half alive
Now I'm alright"

Paramore's self-titled album is due to come out April 19th.
