Innocent When You Dream

This waltzing piece of bittersweet poetry from Tom Waits has been playing on an endless loop in my head today. Here's a video from his Houston show on 6/22/08. For a bootleg it's good quality. When Waits growls "louder" at the 3:40 mark it becomes a full-throated audience singalong. Simply perfect!

It's such a sad old feeling
the fields are soft and green
it's memories that I'm stealing
but you're innocent when you dream
when you dream
you're innocent when you dream
