Song Meaning
Verse 1
I woke up in a cheap motel, didn't know how I got there
The smell of day old beer and dried up tears left me gasping for air
There was a picture of the King and he started to singsomething about the heartbroke
And with each refrain, tears fell like rain and got sadder with every note
It was such a lonely sound
I started howlin' like a hound
Verse 2
Then I woke up and the TV was on, so I stayed up a little and watched
It was all subtitles, could've been untitled, the way it avoided a plot
There was a hi-tech spy, must've been a bad guy, had his gun pointed out the TV
And then a laser beam came right through the screen and I knew he was aiming at me
He spotted me and started to grin
And just as he shot again
Verse 3
I woke up
Was in a cold sweat just as I was about to scream
I woke up
Took a deep breath, told myself it was only a dream
'Cause I was still in bed
The pillow over my head
Verse 4
I woke up, threw on my clothes and headed on out the door
Ran a few feet out into the street, right smack in the middle of a war
The sky was foreboding, the bombs were exploding, I knew this would come to no good
And in a single flash, it was reduced to ash, I thought there goes the neighborhood
Then I saw something streak past
And just as I heard the blast
I woke up
Verse 5
I woke up
Was in a cold sweat just as I was about to scream
I woke up
Took a deep breath, told myself it was only a dream
'Cause I was still in bed;
The pillow over my head
Verse 6
I woke up and there she was staring at me from across the room
Offered her a shot of Jack, she poured it down her back said, "I use that much for perfume"
Then she grabbed the bottle, drank half with a swallow,I knew this girl was tough
She said, "Whatever you got, you take your best shot, if you think you're man enough"
Well I was ready to take the test
But the moment she slipped off her dress
I woke up
I woke up
Verse 7
I woke up and the sun was shining; the alarm clock was ringing
Aww you know dear I didn't sleep too well last night
Maybe I better call in late for work
Iuh no nonoyou're right dear
It is a beautiful day
Yeah
