will my bride sleep tonight
softly
believe the words
as always lying
and she sleeps and dreams
lord knows what
but it's not for me to be there
and she knows she isn't there for me
it's just a way of protecting
and will my bride believe the lie
says it's all right; still together till we die
but she knows that words aren't always
always what we mean to say
but still she says she loves me anyway
that's all she said
one more word she speaks and says good night
she would believe enchanted lies
I wait for her but still inside
she's dreaming of Valentino's eyes
far away in someone else's night
it isn't wrong but still it isn't right
that's all she said

    General Commentthis song is a sad one, pretty heavy meaning.

    its about two people who are married but they dont love each other, or maybe she just doesnt love him completely. becaus she is dreaming of something else, either a real person or jsut an ideal..but they are married for some reason, but he knows she doesnt love him completely. really sad.

    General CommentIt goes both ways. He's thinking the same thing. They're both falling out of love with each other, and they're just together because, well, they're married. Thus beginning their empty, sad life together.

    General CommentAnother buried treasure among Toad songs. Such a sobering and melancholy song. This song can be taken several different ways.

    One read into it might be that he cheated on her, she found out, and they "worked it out" ... but it will never be the same now, and she'll go through because she's married - while dreaming of that pure love.

    Another read into this is that he truly loves her (as per the line "I wait for her"), but she only loves him as a husband and friend, and not a lover. Very common between married couples after the initial romantic aspect wears off.

    Finally, as Davkay suggested, could be about two people who don't love each other anymore completely - both married, both dreaming of other scenarios. As a guy who has been married for 10 years now, this song is really sad to me. The idea of my wife dreaming of another is pretty depressing, yet we're all human, and I can't say that it's unnatural for anyone in a marriage to envision other options at times.
