Dwight Yoakam — Dreams Of Clay lyrics

I'd been building hopes so long honey I must have lost sight of what went wrong
Cause in sorrow's blinding light today baby it looks like my dreams were made of clay
Years of yearning spent for you honey I know now were the cravings of a fool
I guess your wants just slipped away baby it looks like my dreams were made of clay

I knew love could toss you down and leave you there to crawl around
Never thought that was a fall we'd make
Gettin' up was nothing new the kind of thing hearts learn to do
Knowin' how doesn't mean it's easy to take
So I'll forget about plans we had for me and you
And dwell on thoughts lonely lives pursue
Praying memories don't stay
Cause baby it looks like our dreams were made of clay
[ steel - guitar ]
I knew love could toss you down...
Yeah baby it looks like our dreams were made of clay
