Imaginary Man

from Catch A Cloud by Edward Rogers

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Catch A Cloud, Edward Rogers' eighth solo album, comes in a cool gatefold case. It is a soul-searching, stripped-down personal statement, a trippy swirl of music and ideas, observations of what was going on around him at the time, which influenced both the music and the lyrics of the songs.

lyrics

I PLAY AN IMAGINARY MAN
HIDING - CAUSE I CAN
NOTHING LEFT TO MAKE YOU SMILE
PAINT A FACE - FAKE IT- A WHILE

SO MANY DID COME
HOW MANY LOST- MORE GONE
KEEPING A SCORE
USING AN- OLD CRAYON

YOU TOOK US AWAY
ONE BY ONE
TILL THERE WAS JUST ME LEFT
TO CARRY ON.

CH; I’M YOUR IMAGINARY MAN
IN YOUR HEAD SINCE TIME BEGAN
PLAY INSIDE YOUR MIND
REMIND YOU OF THE SINS /YOU HIDE BEHIND

FACES NO LONGER LOOK THE SAME
DESTROYED N TAKEN AWAY
TOO MANY FRIENDS HAVE COME N GONE
TILL THERE WAS ONLY ME LEFT- TO CARRY ON

WELL I’M YOU’RE IMAGINARY MAN
IN YOUR HEAD SINCE TIME BEGAN
PLAY INSIDE THE MIND
REMIND YOU HOW YOU TREATED MANKIND

SO DESPERATE TO GET ME
OUT OF YOUR HEAD
WHEN YOU GO TO BED
I’M THE ONE- YOU MOST DREAD
IN NIGHTMARES
NOW ALL PAINTED IN RED
FOR PAST ACTIONS REVEALED-
NOW LOST LEFT AND UNSAID

I’M YOUR IMAGINARY FRIEND
NO LONGER USE ME TO DEPEND
STOP! NO NEED TO PRETEND
LIES TIED UP-AS YOU DESEND

PLAYING IN THE MIND OF A MAD MAN
DO AS MUCH DAMAGE AS I CAN
WAITING FOR A CRACKED SMILE
BEFORE YOU WALK THE LAST MIRACLE MILE

I’M YOU’RE IMAGINARY MAN
I’M IN YOUR HEAD SINCE TIME BEGAN
LIVE INSIDE YOUR MIND
REMIND YOU OF THOSE YOU LEFT BEHIND X2
I’M YOU’RE IMAGINARY MAN
