A Bad Dream Lyrics - Keane

Review The Song (53)



Why do I have to fly
over every town up and down the line?
I'll die in the clouds above
and you that I defend, I do not love.

I wake up, it's a bad dream,
No one on my side,
I was fighting
But I just feel too tired
to be fighting,
guess I'm not the fighting kind.

Where will I meet my fate?
Baby I'm a man, I was born to hate.
And when will I meet my end?
In a better time you could be my friend.

[chorus]
I wake up, it's a bad dream,
sponsored links
No one on my side,
I was fighting
But I just feel too tired
to be fighting,
guess I'm not the fighting kind.
Wouldn't mind it
if you were by my side
But you're long gone,
yeah you're long gone now.

Where do we go?
I don't even know,
My strange old face,
And I'm thinking about those days,
And I'm thinking about those days.

I wake up, it's a bad dream,
No one on my side,
I was fighting
But I just feel too tired
to be fighting,
guess I'm not the fighting kind.
Wouldn't mind it
if you were by my side
But you're long gone,
yeah you're long gone now.

Joy and Sadness | Reviewer: Lubin | 7/20/11

I heard this song couple of days back and loved it. Today I had a great day at office - got good appriasal, was really happy but at the same moment sad as well. I will be getting real good money from next month bt may be that is not wat i need. I wanted to just share my happiness that I am doing well. i messeged only person abt it and even she hasnt responded. no one else knows abt it... wish i could celebrate it - with some one frnds, gf, parents - bt no one is very happy with it. frnds will be jealous, parents will just how much the increase is...

on my way back from office.. heard this song 14-15 times back to back... filled me with joy and sorrow at the same time..

Should of fought smarter, not harder. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/29/10

Im so mad at my family,for comming in between my love and i. We went thru alot together,and had alot good times. Just when he leaves to get a place, for us to be together, My family makes it a battle for him mostly.But i wanted to spare him anymore stress and myself being embarassed.So when he left to get the place, i left him a note,and left myself a big heartache. I should have had a smart plan in place.I knew it was getting close to us being pulled apart.No car, no job, no phone. What is a woman to do?. I cry everyday, I regret that day. May not get another chance at love. He was it and always will be. I heard this song for the first time, hoping it would not be the song. It is now! thanks Kevin Rodasti, for the best times of my life. I hope and pray for your safety,and that we will meet again. May 4th-2010, we met. Parted December 8th-2010. I keep saying, i will see you again.

may not ever see him again. | Reviewer: lorie | 12/29/10

My family does not believe in true Love, I wasnt looking for him, when i found him. I should of fought for him more. It just kills me inside. i want to leave and find him. But i dont have a way now. How fricking sad. im crying inside everyday, he doesnt know.i wished i could get a message and a plan to him. i pray. Lorie Phillips...DECEMEBER 29th-2010

separation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/1/10

This song takes me back to a tough period when I separated and spent days locked in a room to avoid seeing my husband who hurt me a lot... this song caressed my wounds... through the lyrics i felt so understood!

you're long gone now.. | Reviewer: Jillian | 10/6/10

This song reminds me of my friend that i did everything with for a short period of time, we worked together and went through hell but we had the time of our lives cause we had each other.. but now she's gone half way round the world to back where she's from and just then this song comes in my had "i just feel too tired to be fighting, wouldn't mind it if you were by my side but you're long gone now" and yeah "i'll be thinking about those days" .. its cruel but we both know the world is gonna turn us into strangers..

a loss that cant be replaced.... | Reviewer: sania khatwani | 8/3/10

this song reminds me a real situation which could be compared to a really bad dream that no 1 wud want to dream about, it indicates a huge loss, (death to be more precise) (could be of any body) and how loosing that somebody changes every thing that once u loved in life....
the lines, WHEN WILL I MEET MY END, AND IN A BETTER TIME YOU COULD BE MY FRIEND, IS LIKE ONCE HE MEETS HIS END (WITNESSED DEATH AS WELL), he wants to be meet his/her friend again.... in the begining when i used to hear that song, i wud feel very depressed but now its tune and soul has kind of grown on me... just love the song... well written and well sang... well done keane

Bad Dream | Reviewer: Megan | 3/14/10

This song is about a WW2 Fighter Jet Pilot that is fighting for something he doesn't believe in anymore and wants to be over.. Thats just what I was told when I met Keane.

Think about it.

Why do I have to fly
over every town up and down the line?
I'll die in the clouds above
and you that I defend, I do not love

Although this song def makes me think about 100 different situations of life when I listen to it. Great song.

wasserfall | Reviewer: Said | 12/16/09

This song is about something better known as: 'homesickness'
yes..that part when the singer sings:'' my strange old face and thinking about those days''..in that part the song takes another form as though he(the singer) were digressing in some place ..lost in the eternity

>>stop

i love this song | Reviewer: jarrad | 3/4/09

this song is by far the best by keane and his song walnut tree and we might aswell be strangers is good :)

this song is off the OC i love it and the lyricsssssssssssss it reminds me of bad things that have happened in my life.

KEANE's power | Reviewer: titima | 2/2/09

don't know why i feel so nostalgic whenever i listen to this song. really, this song makes me thinkink about thousound things which go down in my life... i'd like to thanks the band for giving me the feeling of being understood...

Do you know where the song came from?? | Reviewer: B | 1/28/09

probably not.. but the song originated from a poem called "An Irish Airman Forsees his Death" by William Yeats. Its about a piolt in the air force not all of your crap about fighting for love and stuff its about a real sacrifice by the way

memories <3 | Reviewer: hales | 11/4/08

My favorite part of this song is:"I was fighting
But I just feel too tired to be fighting,guess I'm
not the fighting kind. Wouldn't mind it if you were by my side But you're long gone, yeah you're long gone now."because it reminds me of my best friend because i've given up fighting for her friendship, and there's no way it's going to be the same again...

i feel for you | Reviewer: claire | 10/11/08

I am listening to this song tonite and its just making me cry. in 2007 I found out my husband had an affair with my best friend of 10 years. I dont think I will ever get over it, no matter how much I love him, which I do, heres hoping I will be able to forget!!!!!!!!!!!!not
