You probably wish you were
Anywhere but here...
Remember this now 'cos it soon will disappear
You'll find yourself wishing
You're anyone but you.
I'm starting to wish I were
Anyone but me.
And I will be broken by this...
As soon as you wake you will
Find me on my way.
And soon when it's safe you may
Find a love again.
And I will be broken by this
Sweet dream
But it's all I have.
Seems that it, oh it
Always bleeds like this
When nothing's wrong
But nothing feels right
You're knocked down and dying,
You'll stand right back up
And you'll fall all alone...
All in this...
Sweet dream
It's all I have
A sweet dream
It's all I have
It's the finest moment that you've ever had.
Like a fallen star in the palm of your hand.
A sweet dream
It's all I have
A sweet dream
It's all I've got...

    General CommentThis song kinda reminds me about the film "Stay" with Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts. It's about near death experience and what you might see in several seconds, right before you die. The film is a total mindf*ck the first time you see it. So is this song.

    I see several meanings in this song.

    1: He has a wonderful dream and when he wakes up, the reality looks like hell, so he can't forget that sweet dream, that lightens up his day.
    2: This dream is a symbol for a great relationship that ended and now when he is on the bottom, he looks back on those happy days and they are like a dream to him, because the memories filled with love and happiness seem so unreal, compared to what he's going through afterwards

    General CommentI really adore this song, it reminds me of a dream that I had with a girl that I loved but never met, she was just a dream. It will always hold a special place in my heart.

    General CommentI think this is about a person who has very hard reality in contrast to very sweet dreams. It sounds like their relationship is falling apart, along with other efforts like work, or attempting just to figure out their life and constantly failing at doing so, but in their dreams they have someone reassuring them until they wake up. Only to see them vanish when they really need them. I had a series of dreams with someone who was very supportive of me and looked out for me. I always wished to meet him, but never did. Anyway the dream really helped me out in my life, but I wished it wasn't just an illusion, so I feel a special connection with this song.

    General CommentTo me the song is about a man with such a crappy life that he has a dream and wishes that he could forever stay in that dream. Wishing to make the dream his reality, instead of the one he is forced to live. I love this song, my favorite Strata song. I saw them live about 5 years ago and it was amazing. They closed with this song, and it brought me to tears. Sucks they aren't together anymore.
