When she sleeps,
There is a fever dream, yeah.
It brings a night terror
To haunt this fragile bird.

She speaks in tounges,
Her words they come undone, yeah.
And with a wayward mind,
She struggles through the night.

All that I can do
Is hope she makes it through,
Through the night, through the night.

These cold nightmares,
They make her worse for wear.
Lost in the dark,
She's got a heavy heart.

And when she wakes,
In her fragile state,
Well she calls my name,
Hoping that I keep her safe.

All that I can do,
Is hope she makes it through.
All that I can do,
Is hope she makes it through.

Through the night (x4)

All that I can do,
Is hope she makes it through.
All that I can do,
Is hope she makes it through,
Through the night.

    I really emphasise with this. My partner suffers from bouts of mental illness and nightmares are part of that. The song kinda makes me sad.

    I don't know but i think of a father who's daughter wakes in the night with night terrors. But, who knows. It could be about some cracked out high maintenance beyatch, so, who knows.

    When i first really thought about the meaning of the lyrics, i thought maybe it was about a guy whose daughter just moved out and is struggling financially and is overwhelmed.

    Then i read that dallas green's wife actually has night terrors. Well i guess my meaning might be correct depending on how the listener takes it.

    Its actually written about his wife who has night terrors. And its about how he feels when she has them and he can't help her. He was interviewd on a radio show in australia and discussed it.
