Daydream lyrics

Lily Meola

When we were kids in the back yard
Playing astronauts and rock stars
No one told us to stop it
Called us unrealistic

Then suddenly you're eighteen
Go to college for your Plan B
What you want is too risky
Live for weekends and whiskey

We all got these big ideas
One day they're replaced with fears
How did we get here?

Darlin' don't quit your daydream
It's your life that you're making
It ain't big enough
If it doesn't scare the hell out of you

If it makes you nervous
It's probably worth it
Why save it for sleep
When you could be
Living your daydream

Thirty-one waiting tables
She has the voice of an angel
Out of money and power
She only sings in the shower
All these things we say we'll get to
Shot down by the reasons not to

Darlin' don't quit your daydream
It's your life that you're making
It ain't big enough
If it doesn't scare the hell out of you

If it makes you nervous
It's probably worth it
Why save it for sleep
When you could be
Living your daydream

So scared of failure that we fail to try
Turnin' around before the finish line
Gotta fall for a minute before you can fly

So daydream
It's your life that you're making
It ain't big enough
If it doesn't scare the hell out of you

If it makes you nervous
It's probably worth it
Why save it for sleep
When you could be
Living your daydream

Why save it for sleep
When you should be
Living your daydream
