Cheatin' In Your Dreams

You see me now
as large as life
but underneath you knew all too well
The hollow shell
No spark of life
Where once upon a time there beat a heart
For you and you knew it
from the start
and you went and blew it
all away

And you knew how
Oh you knew best
The strings to pull and buttons to press
To wind me up
and make me shake
you controlling every move I made
I couldn't see through it
all the pain
and you put me through it
Over and over again
just tell me over and
over and over...

How could you say there was no other
Why is it nothing's what it seems
You told me I'm your greatest lover
Do you even know what that word means
Your lovin' is coolin'
Baby who ya think you're foolin'
'Cos when I woke up
I caught you cheatin' in your dreams
When I woke up
I caught you cheatin' in your dreams

Stop it!
Stop it!
Don't you say a word!
I feel my hands around her neck
and everything went blurred
Broken broken
she slipped from out my hands
She lay so still and lifeless,
I cried baby baby baby

How could you say there was no other
Why is it nothing's what it seems
You told me I'm your greatest lover
Do you even know what that word means
Your lovin' is coolin'
Baby who ya think you're foolin'
'Cos when I woke up
I caught you cheatin' in your dreams
When I woke up
I caught you cheatin' in your dreams

It was my dumb luck
I just came unstuck
My whole world shook
I'd had about enough
When I woke up
I caught you cheatin' in your dreams
