Jessica Lowndes – In All My Dreams I Drown lyrics

Devil & Tamara :
The Ship it swayed
Heave ho heave ho
On the dark and Stormy Blue

And I held tight to the Captain's might
As he pulled up his trews
"You haven't slept, heave ho" he said
"In many suns and moons"


Oh I will sleep when we reach shore
And pray we get there soon.

He said "Now hush love, here's your gown"
"There's the bed, Lanterns down"
But I don't want to go to sleep
In all my dreams I drown
Tamara:
The captain howled
Heave ho heave ho
And tied me up with sheets.
Devil & Tamara:
A storm is brewing in the south
Devil:
It's time you go to sleep

Devil & Tamara:
His berth it rocks
Heave ho heave ho
The ocean gnashed and moaned
Like Johna we'll be swallowed whole
And spat back teeth and bones

He said "Now hush love, here's your gown"
"There's the bed, lanterns down"
But I don't want to go to sleep

Tamara:
In all my dreams I drown

Tamara:
Captain!
Captain!
I will do your chores
I will warm your cot at night
And mop your cabin floors
Scold me
Hold me
I'll be yours to keep
The only thing I beg of you
Don't make me go to sleep.

Devil & Tamara:
The sky, it flashed
Heave ho, heave ho
His pillow dulled the brink

Tamara:
The curtains ran between my legs

Devil & Tamara:
As we began to sink

I closed my eyes
Heave ho, heave ho
As the ship was rent and filled
Eddie's in the water headed
To the mouth of Hell

Hush now, Hush Love
Here's your gown
There's the bed, lanterns down
I'm begging you please wake me up
In all my dreams I...

    I honestly cannot help but feel this song is about sexual abuse of some kind. Possibly even rape. Each heave-ho from the captain is him forcing himself on Tamara. Hush now hush love, here's your gown, there's the bed, lanterns down is him effectively sending her to bed. In all my dreams I drown could be reference to the trauma because this happened when she was sent to bed.

    It could be possible that this is one long sequence over time. Initially it may have been something non-penetrative. Oral etc, but he was no longer satisfied so in order to get his way, he ties her down to the bed with sheets. A storm is brewing in the south referencing the nether regions, and "It's time to go to sleep" meaning to sleep with one another.

    His berth it rocked heave-ho heave-ho. Pretty obvious,

    The next verse, "Hold me scold me I'll be yours to keep" I wonder if she was okay dealing with the abuse up until this point but didn't want it to go to penetration, and was begging them to stop, that she'd happily deal with the abuse, so long as he didn't sleep with her.

    The sky it flashed, heave-ho heave-ho the pillow dulled the brink. The instant of penetration, possibly biting the pillow to dull the initial pain The curtains ran between my legs as we began to sink. I'm going with overly lewd answer here. The curtain would be the labia, and they ran between her legs from the blood.

    I closed my eyes heave-ho heave ho as the ship was rent and felled. This is as the act continues, she's closed her eyes hoping it will be over soon, hence the next verse being I beg you please wake me up, because she's hoping this is all a nightmare.
