Lyrics

You sit there in a corner with a lonely cigarette
And your dandelion for a heart
And the girls flow by
Time, time, time just crawls along
Like innocence melting in your mouth
Pretty wallflower, what on earth are you doing?

And the wind blows hard
The wind blows hard
The wind blows hard
The wind blows hard
And the wind blows hard on your sentimental dreams

Dumbstruck on the sidelines
Brilliantine and nervous
You pace yourself to last
Loose cannons and a ten cent knockback
What the hell did you expect?
All that you crave sits so close
Just the other side of one more ruski
One more ruski

And the wind blows hard on your sentimental dreams
The wind blows hard on your sentimental dreams
The wind blows hard

All that you crave sits so close
Just the other side of one more ruski
Night after night, the rollercoaster rides
The ache in your limbs
As new records fly by
One day a door will open
And all of this will begin to make sense
The flower of the world blooms before you
The flower of the world blooms before you

And the wind blows hard on your sentimental dreams
The wind blows hard on your sentimental dreams
The wind blows hard
Yes the wind blows hard
The wind blows hard on your sentimental dreams
