Song Description

Common and not-so-common bad dreams scenarios alluding to something disturbing going on in the mind of the singer

Story Behind the Song

Based on a dream I had of meeting, and being snubbed by, Bonnie Raitt

Lyrics

All my teeth are falling out, falling out, falling out
All my teeth are falling out, falling out, falling in my dreams
like something's bothering me

Standing naked in the hall, in the hall, in the hall
Standing naked in the hall, in the hall, in front of everybody
now whatcha think that means?

Something in my heart weighs more than I can tolerate
and it sends a night time message to my brain
Maybe I'm mistaken or it's just a rude awakening
but something's troubling my waking mind...
that I can not define

Yeah, I'm getting chased by rabid dogs, rabid dogs, rabid dogs
getting chased by rabid dogs, rabid dogs to catch me they did try
and then I opened up my eyes

And sometimes I'm just falling down, falling down, falling down
sometimes I'm just falling down...falling from the sky
but I couldn't tell you why

Something in my heart weighs more than I can tolerate
and it sends a night time message to my brain
Maybe I'm mistaken or it's just a rude awakening
but something's troubling my waking mind...
that I can not define

There's a story in there somewhere but the plot's a little shaky
and the moment that I fall asleep my fears they overtake me
and every time that i start pulling on that little thread
arms start reaching out to pull me underneath my bed

Then i dreamt that I met Bonnie Raitt, Bonnie Raitt, Bonnie Raitt
Dreamt that I met Bonned Raitt
and told her that I loved her
but she just walked on by

Something in my heart weighs more than I can tolerate
and it sends a night time message to my brain
Maybe I'm mistaken or it's just a rude awakening
but something's troubling my waking mind...
that I can not define
