      About "I Dreamed of My Old Lover"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "I Dreamed of My Old Lover"

      I dreamed of my old lover last night
      I wonder if I spoke out loud
      And if by chance my husband overheard
      He put my face back in the crowd

      His eyes were clear and gentle then
      He kissed the troubles from my brow
      I long to fall to sleep again
      And I wonder how he would look now

      Would our kids grow sullen or grow strong?
      Would their limbs bronze in solitude and sun?
      I like the way it feels but then
      I rarely dream of anyone

      In the songs of shame and the tales of dread
      Where they seal the lovers' lips with lead
      And all the vines wind through their eyes
      Oh but no one knows this passion now
      Oh no one knows this passion now

      So I keep this fancy to myself
      I keep my lipstick twisted tight
      I long to fall to sleep again
      I dreamed of my old lover last night
      I long to fall to sleep again
      'Cause I dreamed of my old lover last night
