Last night I had the strangest dream
I met the boy who raped you
I wanted to be turned black and blue
But both my arms were stuck

And then I met you
I hadn't seen you in years
But in my dream I met you
And I found you in tears

I couldn't tell if your tears were from crying or from laughing
I didn't have the courage or dignity to ask
I didn't know whether to comfort you or laugh along
I hesitated for a short while and then I ran away

    Lyric CorrectionLast night I had the strangest dream
    I met the boy who raped you
    I wanted to beat him black and blue
    But both my arms were stuck

    And then I met you
    I hadn't seen you in years
    But in my dream I met you
    And I found you in tears

    I couldn't tell if your tears were from crying or from laughing
