You Can Sleep While I Dream Lyrics - Bon Jovi & Jon Bon Jovi

Review The Song (1)



(written by: Bon Jovi)

You're boy sits down to write a song 'cause he thinks he's got something to say
Innocence thinks it can change the world but the world keeps getting in the way
It's a small list for the optimist who believes that he can fly
In a long line full of pessimists to stop him every time he tries
Some people see things as they are and ask,"why?"
I dream things that never were, I take my shot and say, "why not?"
Chorus:
(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the dreamers
(Hey, hey, hey) Doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I bend but I aint' breaking
Scared but I ain't shaking
Baby, you can sleep while I dream
Convicted by convictions, they were carving out your cross
They came to take your measurements just to show you who's the boss
Until I reach that promised land I won't stop
When I get there I'll shake your hand so meet me on that mountaintop
Chorus:
(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the dreamers
(Hey, hey, hey) Doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I bend but I aint' breaking
Scared but I ain't shaking
Baby, you can sleep while I dream
(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the breathing
(Hey, hey, hey) Forgotten and the bleeding
I may whisper but I'm screaming
I got angels, I got demons
Baby, you can sleep while I dream
I'm not suggesting that you fly with me (Yeah, yeah)
Well here's a dose of some reality (Yeah, yeah)
You're swinging at a change-up, boy you better shape up, here comes the wrecking
ball
Good morning, here's your wake-up call
Chorus:
(Hey, hey, hey) I feel the change a comin'
(Hey, hey, hey) See that train a comin'
(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the dreamers
(Hey, hey, hey) Doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I bend but I ain't breaking
I'm scared but I ain't shaking
Baby, you can sleep while I dream
(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the breathing
(Hey, hey, hey) The dying and the bleeding
Get out of my way
I may whisper but I'm screaming
I got angels, I got demons
Baby, you can sleep while I dream, when I dream… and I dream… I dream…
(Hey, hey, hey) I can feel the change a come
(Hey, hey, hey) I see that train a coming
Can you see it?

A widely-unknown gem of the Bon Jovi world. This song was never featured on the radio and is never performed live. Yet the lyrics are by far superior in so many ways. The lyrics would later be re-worked to form the song "Love's the Only Rule" off of THE CIRCLE (one of the 3 decent songs off that record).

This song is basically the story of my life. No matter what the world throws at me, I use my unique talents to keep pushing forward and eventually, I made a name for myself. Conversely, when I look at all of the other guys on my college campus, I see a lot of dudes hung over several days in a row and on academic probation. Most of them are business majors with NO marketable skills (except that they can drink a beer with spunk in it without blowing chunks), and will probably still spend the rest of their lives straightening up toilet paper at Target. This is the song's bridge. Reality sucks.

This song also has a great guitar part that would make Peter Buck do a backflip...
