Dreamed I Saw Soldiers

This song is by Neil Halstead and appears on the album Sleeping on Roads (2002).

Climbed out the window and stared at the stars,
But the moment I wanted had already passed
Lost in the silence, blessed by the night,
Dreamed I saw soldiers; they were all dressed in white,
All dressed in white

Well, the summer came late, so I slept here for days
Till Winter was over and my heart could be saved
I walked for a lifetime and I climbed in a hole
She had breasts on the outside, she had breath in her soul
Death in her soul

Placed in a bottle and flung out to sea,
I was stung by the thought that the ship was now me
Lost in the silence, blessed by the night,
I dreamed I saw soldiers; they were all dressed in white,
All dressed in white

A fellow by nature, I fell for a way
That would shake me all over and spin me around
Twisted my feelings till I nearly drowned
It was love at first sight the first time around,
Time around

We stared at the walls till we lost all the dawn
Waiting for words, I said, "I've been cursed by your love."
Crying for shame
So what has become of our love?
Of our love?

Now all the neighbors have stolen my stash
I write poems about death; I ain't finished one yet
Lost in the silence, blessed by the night,
I dreamed I saw soldiers; they were all dressed in white,
All dressed in white
