The devil's in the dreaming
With nothing to believe in
And it's so quiet
And then you wake
For all the things you're losing
I'm going down to Hollywood
crawling round my brain
I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me
I wish for all the world that I could say,

You see yourself descending from a building to the ground
You spin to see the traffic rising up
You're surprised

I might as well resign myself to try and make a change
They're gonna make a movie from the things that they find

And I could shake this static every time I try to sleep
"Hey Elizabeth, you know, I'm doing alright these days."
In one of these dreams, you forgive me
How could anyone else have changed?
How could everyone rearrange?
What I see I believe
For all the things I'm losing
Well, I'm going down to Hollywood
crawling around my brain
I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me
I wish for all the world that I could say,
