about

2003: I Hope to Dream of You Tonight is a song about love, inspired just a little by a Microsoft Windows commercial and a lot by something else.

lyrics

VERSE:
I wear a window on my heart,
So you can see right through.
A single pane of glass that separates the valves and halves.
It does not sever me from you.

I put a seal upon my lips:
A promise to be true;
A reminder residue that preserves clues and other cues and
The kiss I saved for you.


CHORUS:
It’s a knot that won’t untie
The truth that doesn’t lie
A tiny death we shared exactly the same time
that brought us back to life.


VERSE:
I have a callous on my hand.
You know the work I’ve done.
An honest mark you see that protects the very heart of me
and the battles I have won.


CHORUS:
This is skin that will not break
A solemn sleep that will not wake
An incandescence that never loses light
I hope to dream of you tonight.


VERSE:
I wear a window on my heart
So you can see right through.
A single pane of glass that separates the valves and halves.
It does not sever me from you.
