In the middle of the night
In the middle of the night I call your name
Oh, Yoko
Oh, Yoko
My love will turn you on

In the middle of a bath
In the middle of a bath I call your name
Oh, Yoko
Oh, Yoko
My love will turn you on
Our love will turn you on

In the middle of a shave
In the middle of a shave I call your name
Oh, Yoko
Oh, Yoko
My love will turn you on

In the middle of a dream
In the middle of a dream I call your name
Oh, Yoko
Oh, Yoko
My love will turn you on
Our love will turn you on (alright)

(Right)

In the middle of a cloud
In the middle of a cloud I call your name
Oh, Yoko
Oh, Yoko
My love will turn you on

Oh, Yoko
Oh, Yoko
Oh, Yoko
Okay
Oh, Yoko

    i agree with the above two comments. i think john's showing his love in a form of life progression. he's saying that he'll love yoko from when he's lost and scared like a child ("in the middle of the night") to when he's growing up ("in the middle of a bath" - i see john as the dirty, splashing child and yoko as the adoring, loving mother cleaning and taking care of him) to when he becomes a man (in the middle of a shave) to when he becomes elderly and all he and yoko have left is their love and memories ("in the middle of a dream") to when he's dead ("in the middle of a cloud" - which sheensha correctly identified as heaven) it's a true shame that john and yoko never got the dream stage.

    you know, they say that yoko broke up the beatles, but anyone who can inspire someone to write a song as lovely and heartfelt as this one cant be that bad of a person

    This was in Rushmore, my favorite movie! I don't think it really means much, but it's so catchy. What does Lennon mean when he says, "in the middle of a cloud"?

    or confusion. like being muffled/surrounded by fuzz, and calling out to the person that he loved for guidance

    Every couple has "a song" and this is my song, with my girlfriend.

    Yes, the song is a love song about Yoko. Duh, spaudo.

    In the middle of a cloud, it is foggy, and confusing.

    This song is very funny and uplifting. "In the middle of a cloud" meaning when he's "high"? haha :)

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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."

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
