"Lord, I Guess I'll Never Know" as written by and Richard Ashcroft....
I heard you stirring in your sleep last night
I was awake with something on my mind
What happens when I leave, will you come with me?
These things I guess I'll never know

Tell me, who do you see when you die in your dreams?
Tell me, who do you touch when you come in your dreams?

I know that sometimes I get lost
Been asking questions since the day I could talk
Life is sweet but when my bones get cold
Will you be there for me to hold?

Tell me, who do you see when you die in your dreams?
Tell me, who do you touch when you come in your dreams?
Tell me, who do you see when you die in your dreams?
Tell me, could it be yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You holding me

Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know (repeat)

When you die in your dreams
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
Will I be holding you?
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
When I die in my sleep
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
Will I be holding you?
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
When you come in your dreams
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
Am I holding you
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
When you come in your dreams
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know
Am I holding you
Oh Lord, I guess I'll never know

    General Commentit's not the deepest or the best song in the verve's "arsanal", but still I'm attracted to it, it's about the times when you feel uncertain of things that "should" be certain like when somebody loves you... does he/she really, really do ?

    My InterpretationDickie looking for peace of mind and commitment in a relationship after previous broken hearts. Still sounds better than the drivel he produces these days.

    Dreams reveal the truth.
