"Dreaming Of Me" as written by and Allen/clark Sovory....
Light switch
Man switch
Film was broken only then
All the night
Fused tomorrow
Dancing with a distant friend

Filming and screening
I picture the scene
Filming and dreaming
Dreaming of me

So we left
Clean cut so we're sounding fast
Talked of sad
I talked of war
I laughed and climbed the rising cast

Quickly I remembered
Fused and saw a face before
Timing reason
Like association hall

    General Commentnot sure but here's a guess. he's making a film, realizing that the film, like a dream, reflects himself and his psyche.

    this may be a stretch but: "dancing with a distant friend", as dancing is a form of interacting with another person or communicating with an audience, making a film could be a way of dancing with a distant friend, i.e., communicating over a distance rather than dancing physically up close or live.

    "association whore" is an odd phrase. My best guess is that refers to free association, the psychoanalytic technique. in this context a "whore" is someone who is obsessed with getting a lot of something, i.e., attention whore. The narrator, as a filmmaker, is a "whore" for "association" in that he's obsessed with learning about himself through filmmaking.

    the vagueness of the lyrics goes to the theme of psychoanalysis and free association. vague lyrics can be interpreted in different ways like a Rorschach test and the interpretation tells something about the interpreter rather than about the inkblot.

    General CommentI'm probably dumb, but what exactly is this song about? I've given the lyrics to some of my friends and they can't figure it out either.

    General CommentI doubt this song has any meaning, just a number of phrases and words that sound good together. Everything Vince Clarke wrote for Depeche Mode has this kind of lyrics.
