"Dreamweaver" as written by and Gary Wright....
I've just closed my eyes again
Climbed aboard the dream weaver train
Driver take away my worries of today
And leave tomorrow behind

Ooh dream weaver
I believe you can get me through the night
Ooh dream weaver
I believe we can reach the morning light
Fly me high through the starry skies
Maybe to an astral plane
Cross the highways of fantasy
Help me to forget today's pain

Ooh dream weaver
I believe you can get me through the night
Ooh dream weaver
I believe we can reach the morning light
Fly me high through the starry skies
Maybe to an astral plane
Cross the highways of fantasy
Help me to forget today's pain

Though the dawn may be coming soon
There still may be some time
Fly me away to the bright side of the moon
And meet me on the other side

Ooh dream weaver
I believe you can get me through the night
Ooh dream weaver
I believe we can reach the morning light
Fly me high through the starry skies
Maybe to an astral plane
Cross the highways of fantasy
Help me to forget today's pain

Dream weaver

    General CommentHey Gary: When I was about 10 years old, my parents had a house in Lake Carmel, NY. I was a friend. We saw this older guy sitting in the front of the lake kind of staring. We asked him what he was doing, he said "thinking of song lyrics". He said his name was Gary, and was in a group called Spooky Tooth. A few months later this song was released. I always liked to think maybe he was composing this particular song when he spoke with him that day, so long ago.

    General CommentAfter the record was released and became successful many people asked me what the song meant. I really wasn't sure myself and would answer "it was about a kind of fantasy experience... a Dream Weaver train taking you through the cosmos." But I was never satisfied with that explanation, and as years went by I began to reflect on what the song actually meant and then it came to me: 'Dream Weaver, I believe you can get me through the night...," was a song about Someone with infinite compassion and love carrying us through the night of our trials and suffering. None other than God Himself. - Gary Wright

    General CommentGreetings and heartfelt salutations,

    Clearly this vainglorious minstrel presumed his vocal cords were installed by the gods of song themselves, for he stretches them to the heights of Heaven so as to turn them into ideal ropes for his nefarious purposes, which are none other than subjecting listeners to a sort of sexless verbal bondage and assuming they are aroused by his lyrical knots. His words are not tied as tight as he believes, however, and astute listeners will catch onto Gary Wright's shoddy construction of himself as the titular "Dreamweaver," connecting strand after weak strand of lazy lyrics together in the hopes the resulting rope/song will prove that he deserves the mystical title he has vaingloriously bestowed upon himself. It is clear upon subsequent listens that the "weaving" Wright proposes is none other than pre-bed-time masturbation, and the sticky strands that fly from Gary's buxom sex dreams are the soporific he so desperately hopes will "get [him] through the night." In the end, the only people sleeping through the night are the poor sods who gave this fraying song a listen. I would know, I've treated these individuals for somnambulism and "Dreamweaver"-induced narcolepsy. By the by, if you happen to desire treatment of any kind, stop by my office in Baltimore, MD, and make sure to mention that you found me on songmeanings.com - your consultation will be on the house!

    Cordially yours,

    Dr. Chester von Schrödonger

    General CommentYou sure it's not a ballad about someone doped up, if you know what I mean? Just asking.

    General CommentWhen I have too much on my mind and then after a few pops get a great buzz, this song totally mellows me out.
