The Avalanches – Take Care in Your Dreaming lyrics
(ft. Sampa The Great, Tricky & Denzel Curry)


Take care in your dreaming and love when you can
You’ll need it now
You’ll need it now
Take care in your dreaming and love when you can
You’ll need it now (Love how you breathe)
You’ll need it now (Love how you sing)
Take care in your dreaming and love when you can
You’ll need it now (Love how you breathe)
You’ll need it now (Take care)
Take care in your dreaming and love when you can
You’ll need it now (Love how you breathe)
You’ll need it now (Love how you sing)
Take care in your dreaming and love when you can (Yeah)
You’ll need it now (Love how you breathe)
You’ll need it now (Love how you breathe)

Twenty eleven my name came alive
At the same time I planned my suicide
Literally I will live lonely inside on the physical side
All my miracles died
Twenty twelve guess that plan ain’t go well
Out my shell still I’m living in hell
Yet it was written from God it was gifted
To give you a story that ain’t hard to tell
Twenty thirteen, far from a pre-teen but it seem that a n**** chased my dream
Making anything that the world has not seen nor heard moving words like verbs, curved
Twenty fourteen, when I turned nineteen
Saying to R.I.P. to my big bro Tree and my girl TT
When she got gunned down now
I’m back on road
‘Cause I couldn’t come round to the funeral
Let a whole year pass
Made an EP and my fans got mad
A lot issues that a young man had
Just two years shy of a high school grad
Twenty sixteen when the boy got mean
ULT embedded in my genes
Around the same time I met X and Ski
If the Klan ain’t hit then we just might be
The ones to have it all in our reach
Twenty seventeen I had no place to sleep
Twenty eighteen Taboo One Three was the best s*** people ever heard from me
When you get pure pain Imma just make heat
Twenty nineteen been good and bleak
Cut off the locks
New look same me
Used to chase my dreams
Now the dream chase me

Take care in your dreaming and love when you can (Chase my dreams)
You’ll need it now
You’ll need it now

Take care in your dreaming and love when you can (Chase my dreams)
You’ll need it now (Yeah)
You’ll need it now

Yeah
South side of Africa
You ain’t really heard of her
Mama was a daughter of a chief
Make sense since
Royalty so skin deep
Melanin carried through heaps
Papa was a soldier
Built our whole life off his shoulders
Both were my pillars, yeah, I told yah
Both were a product of about 10 kids
About 10 needs
About 10 feeds
Walking to school it was about 10k’s
Knees getting faded
Hope getting faded
Aches
No lights flashing and flicker, it was a dream
Providing for they children
Just to hope our souls beam with prosperity
My parents they took big care of me
Made sure opinions were heard
‘Cause it scary
Middle kid tings
Always lurking in the back
When I felt I wasn’t heard
Decided to take back

Take care in your dreaming and love when you can (Take care)
You’ll need it now (Was a dream)
You’ll need it now (Anything that world has not seen)

Take care in your dreaming and love when you can (It was a dream, yeah)
You’ll need it now
You’ll need it now
Take care

Love don’t leave
Love can’t breathe
Love cannot breathe
Breathe

Take care in your dreaming and love when you can
You’ll need it now
You’ll need it now (Love can’t breathe)
