Sweet Dreams

Sweet dreams song is one of the songs popularized by Air Supply. It is all about a story between to lovers who are very far away from each other. Since their communication at that time is only on mails, they just wish each other sweet dreams. They just kept on thinking each other.

This song is best described to man who worked as a sailor. He used to be in the sea for the most of his time. His lover probably left at home. So, communication between them is very difficult to do. What he only has is a wishful thinking that maybe his lover is in good health and maybe someday they will be with each other.

I have a neighbour who has the same experience. He used to be a member of the army. There is no day when he is not thinking of his lover. The same happen to his lover also.

Lyrics

This is the time when you need a friend
You just need someone near
I’m not looking forward to the night
I’ll spend thinking of you when you’re not here

How many times will I think about the things
I’d like to do
Always denied the right to live my life the way I want
I want to share it with you

Close your eyes
I want to ride the skies in my sweet dreams
Close your eyes
I want to see you tonight in my sweet dreams

I’ll think of your kiss as the days roll by
And I’ll write the words you love
What I can’t say in a letter
Will just have to wait till I get home

There’s not much time to tell you
Half the things I should
Only that I’m so glad I fell in love with you
And I’d do it again if I could

Close your eyes
I want to ride the skies in my sweet dreams
Close your eyes
I want to see you tonight in my sweet dreams

Sleep like a child resting deep
You don’t know what you give me I keep
For these moments alone.
