Lyrics

Imaginary Friend - Corktown 1990

There’s a body without a head that’s not quite dead,
and all the fears that have haunted you for years
won’t let you sleep,
you try to keep it together through stormy weather
and heal your head,
nothing seems to work, so like a jerk, you’re talking to your
imaginary friend.

C
I’m never lonely with my imaginary friend (3x)

All your dreams have turned to nightmares in black and white,
the lightning in your head never stops flashing while you sleep,
a baby’s cry from the closet haunts your every breath,
and the images of dead friends have you recalling
everything you dread.

C

There’s an exorcism going on inside your head,
the babbling priest spouts Latin – that’s dead.
the beating on the window pane never ceases,
nature’s come alive now you understand the trees,
the screams in your dreams have all come alive,
you sweat like a pig underneath the knife,
run through the streets ignored by all
come to me, come to me, can’t you hear me call?!

C


Notes

  • Our goth song! haha…it was a regular in our set-list from 1990 to 1993.
  • Check out Paul’s dancing in the 1992 video! Wow! …and the masks in the 1990 video. The 1990 video also includes a Mole Intro!
  • I prefer the 1992 live version of them all.
