My Morning Jacket – Never in the Real World Lyrics

Never in the real world, baby
Never in the day
Never in the light now could I
Ever find my way

Only in the evening when the
Sun sinks from the sky
Only in the moonlight could I
Ever truly fly

Only in the night time, baby
Never in the day
Only in the darkness could I ever find my way
Never in the real world
Never in the real world

Never in the real world, baby
Nothing’s what it seems
Never in the real world, honey
Life is but a dream

Never in the morning
Never in the light of day
Did I ever, ever, ever
Know what the right thing was to say

Only after midnight
Only in a trance
Head all full of spirits
Stumbling when I dance

Never in the real world
Never could I see
Never in the real world
Was it ever up to me
Never in the real world

Coming at you live now, baby
Blurring all the lines
Bending every rule
Across all of space and time

Only in the night time, baby
Wrapped up in the dance
Lost deep in your eyes now
Leaving everything to chance

Only in the night time
Only in the dark
Only in the shadows could I
Ever find the spark

Only in the night time, baby
Never in the day
Only in the darkness could I ever find my way
Never in the real world
Never in the real world
