We made up a game when we were very young
I said "Let's play for keeps", you said "Let's just play for fun"
And we danced with each other's shadows until the sun went down
Then you went away to school and I moved to Chinatown

I always knew I'd end up here with you
Where dreams go when they don't come true

Now here you are in Java Mama's stealin' glances at me
If you don't know what you're lookin' for you're in good company
Sometimes I don't mind singin' to the walls
I could confess to murder here and you'd all still applaud

I always knew I'd end up here with you
Where dreams go when they don't come true

I'll teach you the violin if you'll teach me the kazoo
I couldn't change for my savior but I'm sure I could change for you

You're tryin' to buy a salesman's lies with small talk and praises
I'm starvin' for attention in front of all these hungry faces
I'll play along if you want to pretend we never met
And if your pity is all you'll give me now I guess I'll take what I can get

I always knew I'd end up here with you
Where dreams go when they don't come true

I'll take you to that graveyard if you'll take me to your room
I may deceive the dead but I'd never pull one over on you

I'm still sittin' at the crossroads listenin' to the gunfire in the glade
Tryin' to change my tune I never liked it anyway
I'm not sayin' all this to hurt you that's never been my intention
I just want you to know the truth even if it means my salvation

I always knew I'd end up here with you
Where dreams go when they don't come true
