Ryan Adams - Meadowlake Street Lyrics

Meadowlake Street

There's something about you

That reminds me of all those times

When I wasn't sorry, when I wasn't blue

The cherry moon it shone down on us

Under the stars shining down every one for you

If I could count them all

I would circle the moon

And count 'em back to nothing

Till I got to you



Something in you dies, when it's over

Everybody cries sometimes

If loving you's a dream

That's not worth having

Then why do I dream of you?



I used to be the house that you lived in

Down on Meadowlake Street

When you moved they cut down the maple tree

I carved your name into

The tree became a boat, I christened it your name

And when the water turned to salt

From your tears it hit the bottom of the ocean

Where I go when I hear your name

And I sink like a stone



Something in you dies, when it's over

Everybody cries sometimes

If loving you's a dream

That's not worth having

Then why do I dream of you?

Why do I dream of you

i feel like a dream that's not having

Like a nervous joke ain't nobody laughing

Like somebody with nothing 'cause they don't know

What they're wanting

Tiny like the sand in the cracks of drift wood

Washed up on the shore of an ocean of you

Boats out on the horizon

Made of the maple tree where we used to lie down

On Meadowlake Street counting the stars you and I

You and I

Something in you dies when it's over

Everybody cries sometimes

If loving you's a dream that's not worth having

Then why do I dream of you

Why do I dream of you

Why
