Daydream

"An oath in neon blue. One last simple thought to share. The other voice sings the song because the voice is prettier, more cold and far away. It's a beautiful dream but we know it ain't gonna happen; who are we fooling here? Still, it's nice to hum along. A husband and wife descend from the heavens to play the last little coda. They do not wear white. Our first encounter with the other way." -BC, Gish 2011 re-issue liner notes

 

Lyrics

my daydream seems as one inside of you
though it seems hard to reach through this light
your blue and hopeless light

my daydream screams 'bitter 'til the end'
the love i share, true
but selfish to the heart
my heart, my sacred heart

my daydream
dream
my daydream
my daydream
dream
my daydream

Notes

At 1:10.5 you can hear a tap/click noise, supposedly from the cellist's bow hitting the wood. There are also jingly noises, probably from a bracelet, most notable around 1:20-21

Followed on Gish by a short bonus track, "I'm Going Crazy".
