and lonely nights
I've waited for you
to put things to rights
leaving you to do
your thing without
disturbance from from me
Somehow I doubt
you'll ever be
I'll keep your things
If you ever need them
the phone still rings
And now that you're free
of me at last
your time is your own
Go have a blast

I'll dream alone without you
I'll dream alone if I must
because I guess our little castle
in the sky just turned to dust
So I'll dream alone, that's showbiz
I'll dream alone from here in
and I'll be trying not to dream
of what once was and might have been
if only I'd known
I'll dream alone

we had a few
but what kind of dream
beats you black and blue
I wanted to scream
Don't go away
but nothing came out
All I could say

    My InterpretationThis is a generic love song at first glance. The line "I'll dream alone, that's showbiz" struck me as a little out of place, but suddenly I got this picture of an aging aspiring actor, alone in the small room he used to rent with his former lover/roommate/fellow aspiring actress. They once dreamed together, figuratively and literally, but now she has found her dream without him. Perhaps when she first hit it big, they were still close, and she promised not to forget him. Even when they inevitably grew apart into separate lives, he couldn't bring himself to throw out her stuff. And now he dreams alone, that's showbiz...

    This must be how my ex-boyfriend feels about me.
