I Could Not Stop Dreaming About Her

Songs 9 & 10: Falling Asleep, Every Night I Dream of You
 

Our penultimate stop in our journey brings us into the dream world. Hold on...

Things were really starting to pick up for our music, we were finally starting to make fans, things were good and it felt good. There was just one problem for me though. I could NOT stop having these recurring dreams about my ex. The funny thing was though they weren't nightmares to the point where she was yelling at me or anything. It was just me sitting with the memories I had left of her, having a conversation again and again about our time together. I'd wake up and just feel sad. I couldn't make them stop so I coped the only way I know how to: Write about it....

"All you wanted was to love me, and all I ever gave to you was nothing"

- Every Night I Dream Of You

Meaning Behind the Song

"Falling Asleep" and "Every Night I Dream Of You" are about falling into a repetitive dream about a former lover that you cannot escape. You enjoy the warmth of the dream while you're in it, but you know something feels off... You know that she isn't real and that you are talking to fragments of a memory. You question is it love or guilt that is keeping her alive? 💙

Lyrics:

Oh I miss you and it hurts so bad
Every time I dream of you it makes me sad

When I sleep I see you and it's haunting
Been a year I'm still here it's exhausting
I left all while you sleep so I didn't have to see you weep

When I wake I'm alone and I'm sorry
I don't call I don't text would you want me
Ross sent the other day no hard feelings it's ok

It's a quarter after ten and I fell asleep again
Running with your ghost through the moments that we've been
Oh I miss you and it hurts so bad
Every time I dream of you it makes me sad

How's your mom how's your dad do they hate me
These are thoughts that I think about lately
I can't just let you know
I should let you let me go

It's a quarter after ten and I fell asleep again
Running with your ghost through the moments that we've been
Oh I miss you and it hurts so bad
Every time I dream of you it makes me sad

I know you're not real but can I pass the time
With pieces I got left of you that I can't leave behind
Oh I miss and it hurts so bad
Every time I dream of you it makes me sad

All you ever wanted was to love me
But all I ever gave to you was nothing
Is it love or guilt that's keeping you alive
I guess I'll ask when I see your ghost tonight

It's a quarter after ten and I'm wide awake again
Playing my guitar this is how it ends
Oh I miss you and it hurts so bad
It makes sad

I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
Oh I miss you and it hurts so bad
Every time I dream of you
Every time I dream of you
Every night I dream of you it makes me sad
