lyrics

Quintessentially Unreal
(words and music by Jill Tracy)

I kinda like the way you move me
sleek and slick and upside down
this blur of colors rushing through me
but you can't utter a sound

I kinda like the way you push me
into a state of disarray
let's conjure up a castle
and we'll toss the key away

I know what it means to be a dreamer
I know what it means to be alone
I know exactly how I want it to feel
quintessentially unreal


I kinda like the way you shiver
and shake and quake and go away
spin me a million miles an hour
let's make some plans for yesterday

I can chart the course of flights of fancy
I'm immersed in ideality
I know exactly how I want it to feel

quintessentially unreal

oh, I'm wandering again
oh, who says you can't pretend?

I kinda like the way you move me
sleek and slick and upside down
this blur of colors rushing through me
and you got me face down on the ground

I kinda like the way you pull me
farther and farther away
in the kingdom of the mind's eye
I think we'll always stay this way


I know what it means to be a dreamer
I know what it means to be alone
I know exactly how I want it to feel
quintessentially unreal
