about

The arpeggiated guitar chord sequence which starts and ends this was something I noodled up (using a cheap mic) back in, uh, not sure. Probably somewhere between 1984 and 1991.

It sat on a cassette for the next two decades until one day the verses came to me (apparently in January of 2008). I don't think that I connected them at first, but it certainly wasn't more than a few days before I realized that the verses worked with that particular guitar riff.

lyrics

So you wake up in the morning and you try to feel all right
Good night, sweet dreams, good night
And there's no-one left to love you and no-one to hold you tight
Good night, sweet dreams, good night

And you watch your dreams drift by and sail forever out of sight
Good night, sweet dreams, good night
And the ones that you have left will never ever come out right
Good night, sweet dreams, good night

The idle thoughts you ponder in the evening
Become monsters who eat your soul up in one bite

But there's no-one left to love you and no-one to hold you tight
Good night, sweet dreams, good night
