The Dreams Of Children Lyrics


I sat alone with The Dreams Of Children
Weeping willows and tall dark building,
I've caught a fashion from the dreams of children
But woke up sweating from this modern nightmare, and
I was alone, no one was there
I was alone, no one was there
I caught a glimpse from the dreams of children
I got a feeling of optimism
But woke up to a grey and lonely picture
The streets below left me feeling dirty, and
I was alone, no one was there
I was alone, no one was there
Something's gonna crack on your dreams tonight...
You will crack on your dreams tonight
I fell in love with the dreams of children
I saw a vision of all the happy days
I've caught a fashion from the dreams of children
But woke up sweating from this modern nightmare, and
I was alone, no one was there
I was alone, no one was there
Something's gonna crack on your dreams tonight...
You will crack on your dreams tonight
You will choke on your dreams tonight

The Dreams Of Children
  • The title was inspired by English writer Clive Barker's horror story The Forbidden, where The Candyman kills to preserve his reputation, so he can haunt "The Dreams Of Children." The book was adapted into a movie in 1992.
  • This song has a psychadelic Beatles-like interesting backwards intro. Prior to writing the song Paul Weller had been listening to his favourite album, The Beatles Revolver. Weller recalls in the book 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh, "After we'd finished recording the album Setting Sons, I asked the engineer if he could record the album backwards and put it on cassette. When I listened to it there was one piece of vocal that I really liked and wrote "The Dreams Of Children" around it."
  • This was released as a double A-side single along with "Going Underground." So many people pre-ordered the single that it entered the UK charts at #1. The previous time this had occurred was Slade's "Merry Christmas Everybody" in 1974.
