just a dream…

didya hear that noise out there…some kinda dog barkin’…

wake you up…

yeah…I was in this dreamlike state and that dog out there woke me up…did the neighbors get a new dog…some kinda big dog like a German Shepard or somethin’…definitely not a small dog…not a yapper…these were full-on barks…and now…nothin’…now that we’re all awake…you don’t hear from him…damn dog…

what were you dreamin’ ’bout…

Burt Lancaster…I was at this movie place with a woman watching Burt Lancaster…it was one of ’em old movie theaters and Burt Lancaster was up on the screen with a woman on the beach…kissing her while the ocean came in…just waves coverin’ ’em and all they kept doin’ was kissin’…he held her tight and I kept thinkin’ I should make my move on the woman I was with…this tall ginger woman with green eyes…so…I put my arm ’round her and she said she wanted popcorn…right when Lancaster is makin’ out with this woman on the beach and I’m gettin’ ready to move in she says she wants popcorn…

so…what’dya do…

at first I got angry…angry at her and angry at Burt Lancaster…

why were ya angry at Burt Lancaster…

’cause he gave me hope and then it was taken away…I had high hopes that I was gonna kiss this woman and it was all ’cause Lancaster was gettin’ kissed on the screen…and there were all these couples ’round us kissin’…all these young people just makin’ out at the movie theater…while waves crashed over Lancaster and this woman he was havin’ an affair with in the movie…

Deborah Kerr…

yeah…Deborah Kerr…that was the woman on the beach with Lancaster…they were just rollin’ in the waves and it seemed like they couldn’t stop…couldn’t get ‘nough of each other…like they was meant for each other forever…

so…did you go and get her popcorn…or did you try to kiss her again…

I was leanin’ in to kiss her and the damn dog woke me up…I was right there at her lips and I could smell her perfume…I put my arm ’round her and that damn dog started barkin’…immediately everything went blank…Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr disappeared…I woke up to reality…to the fact that there is no ginger woman in my life…I wasn’t in the movie theater with a beautiful woman…I was alone…just simply alone…and I felt really sad all the sudden…like there was no hope in this world…I was never gonna be on some beach like Burt Lancaster with some woman that I loved…never…

few get that…

yeah…few do…the lucky ones…the ones that played their cards right…oh well…it was just a dream…
