Last night I dreamt
That somebody loved me
No hope, but no harm
Just another false alarm

Last night I felt
Real arms around me
No hope, no harm
Just another false alarm

So, tell me how long
Before the last one?
And tell me how long
Before the right one?

The story is old, I know
But it goes on
The story is old, I know
But it goes on

It goes on and on
It goes on and on
It goes on and on

    It's about a ambiguous person and his/her relation towards love.
    Though the person is able to dream about love, he/she is anxious whether
    Or not the beloved is the right one. The person wants love but does not dare to
    Love, maybe for mutliple fears of being rejected, humiliated and/or simply being disappointed by either another person or, more likely according the lyrics, by him/herself.
