"Blessed By A Nightmare" as written by and Christopher C./johnson Hughes....
Hands up and don't you make a sound
Shotgun is pointed at me now
It just might blow me away
So here's all I have
It isn't much but please
All I ask is
Let me walk away
Just then I thought I heard the sound

I never had this feeling so cold
I stood their freezing
And waiting
I never had this feeling so cold
It seemed too easy
It seemed too easy to be gone

Hands out before I kiss the ground
Shotgun still pointed at me now
Ready to blow me away
And I don't think I will make it home tonight
Don't think I will make it out alive
That's when I then I thought I heard the sound

I never had this feeling so cold
I stood their freezing
And waiting
I never had this feeling so cold
It seemed too easy
It seemed too easy to be gone

Each night I dream it all again
Steel barrel up against my head
Each night I never get away
It's shots fired shots fired shots

If the light should take me
Then tonight I'll be free

I never had this feeling so cold
I stood their freezing
And waiting
I never had this feeling so cold
It seemed to easy
It seemed to easy to be gone

I'm blessed by a nightmare nightly
And when I'm dying it reminds me
I grab the air now and hold it tightly
Remember everything I love
Then I'm gone

    General CommentI think he got mugged and shot at (but wasn't hit), but it was such a close call that he has a nightmare about the time every night. He takes it as a blessing, because it makes him cherish life all the more.

    Take the money; just let me walk away alive.

    General Commentthis songs awesome. why has no one commented

    i think its just comparing a relationship to a murder. his lifes flashing before his eyes before his death/breakup.

    oh and these lyrics are way off

    General Commenti think this song is about getting mugged and by the end of the song, he gets shot because it says he feels cold and hes grabbing for the air. hes also realizing that he'll never see his family again.

    General CommentThis one of my favorite songs...

    I think it means how sometimes it takes a tramatic experience to show you what you're missing. What or who you didn't know you loved so much.

    But, I guess you guys are correct :-)

    General CommentWOW suprised nobody had this one. The guy has this dream where he is "held up" and ends up dead. In his dream he realizes "IT seems to easy
    to be gone". basically this dream inspires him to live life.
