Story Behind the Song

DREAMS AFFECT OUR WAKING STATE AND CAN DETERMINE OUR LIFESPAN (From D News - Tallahassee, FL) Professor Erwin Kleinschmidt, expert in dream interpretation says that "dreams can affect our health and determine life expectancy". "Our dreams may have a profound effect on our overall health to a greater extent than we previously thought - They can affect us, in either a beneficial or negative manner. The brain waves during REM sleep, have long term impact on blood pressure, cell production and resistance to disease. And we've only just scratched the surface on the research that is underway and the data we're collecting".

Lyrics

It Only Hurts When I Dream (by Tony DiPofi)
==========================

It only hurts -- when I dream
and in that moment, just before dawn
just before the birds start to sing
when I realize that you're gone
It only hurts when I dream
and in that moment, just before dawn
Last night I had a dream, baby
That I was wandering down some lonely street
I saw you in the distance and ran to you
but you just turned and walked away from me
It only hurts -- when I dream
and in that moment just before dawn

Last night I drank some whiskey, baby
just trying to get a little help from Mr. Jim Beam
but he only made me swagger
and stagger down broken streets in my dream
It only hurts -- when I dream
and in that moment, just before dawn

I go to work baby and I do the things
that a man has to do
my friends ask me if I feel alright
and how I'm doin without you
I tell em

It only hurts -- when I dream
and in that moment just before dawn
just before the birds start to sing
when I reach for you and you are gone
