Bad Dream
Indigo De Souza Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I had a bad dream
I called you at 3 AM
And you were there on the other side
The others left
I don't think I'm ready for a clean cut kind of love
But I don't think I have a choice
I'm already gone
Please send help to me
Please send help to me
God, oh, oh, oh, oh

Girls are fighting
I'm having a hard time sleeping
Girls are fighting
I'm having a hard time
Dogs are barking
I'm having a hard time sleeping
Things are changing
I'm having a hard time

Please send help to me




Please send help to me
God, oh, oh, oh, oh

I heard this on the radio almost a week ago and couldn't shake it. Didn't know the title or artist, and didn't think I'd ever find it again. So glad I did.
