Different dreams

 

Painter: Peter Wever
Oscar Benton ~ Different dreams

Lyrics:

Our honeymoon is over
And the best days of our love are dead and gone
Instead of growing closer
This time goes on and on
We’re getting miles apart
Don’t get beside me as before
And when we kiss goodnight I find

That since we’re sharing the same bed
we’re not sharing the same dreams anymore
That since we’re sharing the same bed
we’re not sharing the same dreams anymore

We’re using the same bathroom
Where your personal things are lying close to mine
And I know that our clothes
Are drying on the same line

When friends come to call
They’ll read our names on the door
If they could read our minds
They’d find

That since we’re sharing the same bed
we’re not sharing the same dreams anymore
That since we’re sharing the same bed
we’re not sharing the same dreams anymore

We’re talking about problems
But we keep our feelings deep inside
We never say a tender word
We couldn’t, even if we tried

It’s hard to realize you’re the girl I’ve been waiting for
‘Cause when we kiss goodnight I find

That since we’re sharing the same bed
we’re not sharing the same dreams anymore
That since we’re sharing the same bed
we’re not sharing the same dreams anymore

  1. Marriage slowly reveals the deepest inner nature, which can never be perfectly aligned. I prefer to think that that makes life richer, that one can have these differences, this past and still have a future. Very authentic and honest song.

  2. Anything worth having needs constant attention. And love in marriage is a full time job! So many believe that marriage is an end goal but in reality it is the starting point. Peace.

  3. WOW! Beautifully written and painfully heard. Reminded me someone the early work of Rod McKuen when he was still playing in bowling alleys and coffee bars. The sketches are positively mesmerizing and even without the music capable of conveying the message.
