"In My Dreams" as written by Mark O. Everett and Kelly Logsdon....
My love is always just as she seems
A force of nature all her own
To be reckoned with
Whatever's wrong with me
Her kiss redeems
And it's all there
In my dreams

My love is soaring
She glides through the sky
Hardly a warning
She takes my hand
Says "Open your eyes"
We look down on the earth
And all its schemes
We laugh
And it's all there
In my dreams

We swoop down below the clouds
Destination unknown
And then she says
"Let's go home"

My love is resting under a tree
She whispers softly in my ear
As she lay next to me
"That was the funnest day"
Her sad eyes beam
And it's all there
In my dreams

    General CommentI believe the lyric is "her kiss redeems" as opposed to "I kissed routines."

    General Comment"We look down on the earth
    and all its schemes...."

    Schemes as in elaborate (and maybe sinister) plans of action?

    Or as in... color schemes? Hues? Rainbows?

    It's so weird how the english language allows for such disparities of meaning for a single word. But sometimes the fun's in the falling down through the cracks, I guess. Open to all interpretations.

    Another definition of scheme, that doesn't have much to do with the others, I think:

    - an internal representation of the world; an organization of concepts and actions that can be revised by new information about the world.

    :)

    General CommentSo good..



    We swoop down the lowly clouds
    Destination unknown
    And then she says, lets go home


    perfect metaphor for when you think you're getting somewhere with a girl, and then she suddenly ejects.

    My InterpretationThis entire album is themed around the absence of a relationship, the beginning of a new one, longing and jealousy.

    To me this song is about dreaming of the intimacy that comes from true companionship, hence the imagery of the two of them soaring above the clouds and looking at the world together from a perspective no one else shares.

    The protagonist doesn't have it, but it's 'all there' 'in his dreams'.
