Song Meaning
Verse 1
If I close my eyes, I see your face, and I'm not without you
If I try hard and concentrate, I can still hear you speak
I picture myself in your room by the chair
You're smoking a cigarette
If I close my eyes, I can see your face; you're saying: "I missed you."
Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'
Verse 2
If I close my eyes, I can smell your perfume; you look and say: "hi, baby."
If I close my eyes, pictures from China still hang from the wall
I hear the dog bark; I turned and say: "what were you saying?"
I pictured you in the red chair inside the pale room
Verse 3
You sat in your chair with a tube in your arm; you were so skinny
You were still making jokes; I don't know what drugs they had you on
You said: "I guess this is not the time for long term investments."
You were always laughing, but you never laughed at me
Verse 4
They say in the end the pain was so bad that you were screaming
Now, you were no saint, but you deserved better than that
From the corner I watch them moving things from your apartment
But I can picture your red chair and pale room inside my head
Verse 5
If I close my eyes, I see your face, and I'm not without you
If I try hard and concentrate, I can hear your voice saying:
"Who's better than you?"
If I close my eyes, I can't believe that I'm here without you
Inside your pale room, your empty red chair, and my head
Dreamin', I'm always dreamin'
