About this song
My Friend You're Just Dreaming Change your clothes change your face change everything change the colour of your skin change your name change your tongue chances are you just won't fit in and you'll be out on a limb Grab your coat grab your bag better move along you better get it done and leave it all behind lonesome rider soldier of fortune with his golden age gone for good and who would bet on dawn My friend you're just dreaming hey, you're takin' it for real My friend you're just dreaming watch the turning of this wheel and you hope and you pray it may keep spinning on Watch your steps mind your head show your callous hands your flawless tie sport the sweat upon your brow Try so hard, try to get it right, try to be on time, try to top it off and beat them all My friend you're just dreaming hey, you're takin' it for real My friend you're just dreaming watch the turning of this wheel and you hope and you pray it may keep spinning on
This was originally a song in Swiss German. It’s not really a translation, it's another song, although some images can be found in both versions. I think it's about the tragedy of someone trying so hard to fit in. People put so much pressure on themselves to meet standards of conformity.
