Used to sleep through the night peacefully
Not a care in the world got to me
But now I lay me down to sleep
I'm afraid of what I might see
I wake up screamin` when your dream goes by

Used to feel like a man in control
Unaware of the storm in my soul
The sight of you took away my breath
I wake up screamin` when your dream goes by

Now in this dream I'm in a room
All dressed up just like a groom
Watchin` shadows dance in the ledge
Suddenly you then appear you whisper in my hear
And I jump right over the edge

Just a dream that I seem to recall
Can't you tell me which doctor to call
Tell him please I'm not feelin too well
Everynight I'm hearin` wedding bells
I wake up screamin` when your dream goes by

I lay there in an ice cold sweat
Sheets are torn and they're soakin` wet
I wake up screamin` when your dream goes by
I wake up screamin` when your dream goes by
I wake up screamin` when your dream goes by
