There's a place
I sometimes see you there
It's a place that I visit
Most every night
And I see your face
Your eyes tell me you still care
But it's suddenly over
With morning's first light

As the day begins
This feeling is going strong
And sometimes the only thing
That keeps me going on
And until you find
Your own way back to me
I'll be forever
Dreamin' the dream

As the day begins
This feeling is going strong
And sometimes the only thing
That keeps me going on
And until you find
Your own way back to me
I'll be forever
Dreamin' the dream

Oh I'll be forever
Dreamin' the dream

    My Interpretation

    Beautiful, wistful song. If you have loved and lost, but never stopped loving, you will understand this song. You go to sleep, and you dream that you are still loved, but with mornings first light, comes the reality, and so you cling on to hope, "but until you find your way back to me, I'll be forever, dreaming the dream." What a shame the album (Time) 1995 flopped, a public tired of FM's constant infighting, breaking up, change of line up (this one is sung by the songwriter, Bekka Bramlett,) virtually ignored it, but there is some beautiful, heartfelt stuff on it, including Christine McVie's swansong for Mac (I'd do it) All over again. Worth a listen.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
