Song Lyric Sunday ~ 6/24/18

I was so miserably sick last week that I didn’t even venture out of my cave to join the fun. I’m feeling better this week, and I’m really excited about this week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme: Dreams.

Sticking with my last entry choosing criteria of a song from a band I’ve seen in concert, my first thought was a song I’m sure someone else will pick. But, oh yeah, the opening band…

Cheap Trick ~ Dream Police

The dream police
They live inside of my head
The dream police
They come to me in my bed
The dream police
They’re coming to arrest me
Oh no
You know that talk is cheap
And rumors ain’t nice
And when I fall asleep
I don’t think I’ll survive
The night the night
‘Cause they’re waiting for me
Looking for me
Every single night
(They’re) driving me insane
Those men inside my brain
The dream police
They live inside of my head
The dream police
They come to me in my bed
The dream police
They’re coming to arrest me
Oh no
Well I can’t tell lies
‘Cause they’re listening to me
And when I fall asleep
Bet they’re spying on me tonight,
Tonight
‘Cause they’re waiting for me
Looking for me
Every single night
(They’re) driving me insane
Those men inside my brain
I try to sleep
They’re wide awake
They won’t let me alone
They don’t get paid to take vacations
Or let me alone
They spy on me
I try to hide
They won’t let me alone
They persecute me
They’re the judge and jury all in one
‘Cause they’re waiting for me
Looking for me
Every single night
(They’re) driving me insane
Those men inside my brain
The dream police
They live inside of my head
The dream police they come
To me in my bed
The dream police
They’re coming to arrest me
The dream police (police, police)
The dream police (police, police)
Songwriters: Rick Nielsen

In case you’re wondering who the headliner was at that show…the band with the obvious song choice…it was Aerosmith. It was a great show. It was the second time I’d seen Aerosmith, the first with Skid Row opening. I’ve seen Cheap Trick a second time too. They were the headliner with Offspring and Iration opening.

Until next week…watch out for the Dream Police ๐Ÿ˜œ

      1. We are on vacay this week – I have been keeping up with reading some of my fave’s – but don’t know if I will get a chance to post anything. The first song I thought of though, was Dreams by Fleetwood Mac – I just started singing it when I saw the prompt!

          1. I thought so! I was sure that was going to be the go-to song ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you! Having a bit of a tough one this year – been using major tunnel vision to focus on what’s important. Hoping for a good night of sleep and a good day tomorrow!

  1. This is exactly how I feel about dreams… I’m not sure I would refer to them as police, but it fits somehow. Great pick for this week! Yes, Aerosmith and the Eurythmics were the two obvious choices for today. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m amazed you’ve seen Aerosmith in concert! Go you!!

            1. Right?! And I can’t do general admission/standing/lawn anymore. My broken down, fibromyalgia body has to have a SEAT. If I’m going to pay the extra for a seat, it’s got to be at least a decent one. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜
