Dreamed I Saw Soldiers Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Climbed out the window and stared at the stars,
But the moment I wanted had already passed
Lost in the silence, blessed by the night,
Dreamed I saw soldiers; they were all dressed in white,
All dressed in white
Verse 2
Well, the summer came late, so I slept here for days
'Til Winter was over and my heart could be saved
I walked for a lifetime and I climbed in a hole
She had breasts on the outside, she had breath in her soul
Death in her soul
Verse 3
Placed in a bottle and flung out to sea,
I was stung by the thought that the ship was now me
Lost in the silence, blessed by the night,
I dreamed I saw soldiers; they were all dressed in white,
All dressed in white
Verse 4
A fellow by nature, I fell for a way
That would shake me all over and spin me around
Twisted my feelings 'til I nearly drowned
It was love at first sight the first time around,
Time around
Verse 5
We stared at the walls 'til we lost all the dawn
Waiting for words, I said, "I've been cursed by your love."
Crying for shame
So what has become of our love?
Of our love?
Verse 6
Now all the neighbors have stolen my stash
I write poems about death; I ain't finished one yet
Lost in the silence, blessed by the night,
I dreamed I saw soldiers; they were all dressed in white,
All dressed in white
