Well now it's hard to see with all these flashing cameras in my face
But I love the way they play
Throwing shadows on the stage
Wondering where you are and what you think about this place
I can't help but miss the days
And I'll write on every page

My hero, she's the last real dreamer I know
(And I could tell you all about)
I don't think I'll fall asleep 'til I roll over
Can we just start over again?
(And I could tell you all about)
I don't think I'll fall asleep 'til then

And now I just had this dream that we were on my bed again
Making love the way we did
Tell me how could I forget
This can't be healthy now the way I dream about your lips
But this just wasn't any kiss
I hope you're still not over this
Not at least 'til I get over you

My hero, she's the last real dreamer I know
(And I could tell you all about)
I don't think I'll fall asleep 'til I roll over
Can we just start over again?
(And I could tell you all about)
I don't think I'll fall asleep 'til then

And now I get left alone while you are lost in outer space
Spreading love another way
And we'll meet again someday
I've taken all I can but I keep thinking just the same
I guess I'll die another day
But I'm sure I'll be on my way
Maybe I'll collapse and float away

Please come home

My hero, she's the last real dreamer I know
(And I could tell you all about her)
I don't think I'll fall asleep 'til I roll over
Can we just start over again?
(And I could tell you all about)
I don't think I'll fall asleep 'til then

    My InterpretationThe first verse sounds like he's away from the one he loves because he's on the road with his band to be at shows. The flashiing cameras meaning the crowd is taking pictures while their band is playing on stage. Basically he is wondering what she would think about where he is and just can't get her out of his head. Maybe him and this girl were in a relationship that ended, and he just can't get over her. The line about him looking back on the two of them making love on his bed is pretty self-explanitory. He's thinking of her lips and how much he wants to kiss her again. It sounds like he doesn't want her to move on until he does, though. I'm not sure what the part about her being lost in outer space means? I've always wondered. But the last verse before the chorus almost makes it sound like she has passed away, which could mean outer space represents Heaven. "I've taken all I can and I keep taking just the same / I guess I'll die another day" sounds like he's been trying to kill himself to be with her again by taking pills but isn't successful in ending his life.
