"The Weaver" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Can you put a smile back on, all these faces
Of all the people from such different places
And if you can succeed, what then will you achieve,
With a different tune to play, you've been saving for a rainy day

Will you heal the scar that's on, the years been wasted
The tears spent of the past, just filling spaces
Or is love forever gone, banished to a smaller part
Hide behind your wall and start, to get to the very heart

An' if you wanna shoot the moon, make sure that you know why
Careful, fly too soon, better let someone else try

I'm the weaver of your dreams, I get rid of your bogeyman
I'm here to smash the shell you're under, an' get you into another thing

I'm the weaver of your dreams, I put paid to the rocket men
I'm here to break the spell you're under, an' get you started with another plan

Could you put a kiss back on, the lips so twisted
Waiting for the chance to start, dipping into wishes
Or is love forever gone, banished to a smaller part
Hide behind your wall and start, to get to the very heart

And in the midst of the darkest night
Think of me and hold me tight
So that I might live to see
All the weaving of my dreams

    General CommentWeller says it's simply about 'putting words on a page'. I read further into that really....

    Because to me, the words are about being there for someone and helping them forget all the things that bother them. I wonder if that's whta Weller was trying to say that he likes to do, but through connecting to his audience through his music?

    Cracking song all the same!

    General CommentUhmmm...dig at Elton John....Errr...No.

    This is the fact that your dreams get crushed and you spend your time hidden from the world trying to figure out what you're going to do and who you are.

    Hide behind your wall and start to get to the very heart.

    Like the aboriginal saying "He who has lost his dreaming is lost" - that is what this song is about. You need dreams to make you feel worthy and happy. If you don't have them then you feel like sh*te.

    This is saying that the weaver of dreams will smash the shell you've crawled under, will break the depressed spell you're under and get you started with another plan (dream).

    It's an uplifting song. Pure genius.
