radiohead Lyrics

(Nice Dream)

They love me like I was a brother
They protect me, listen to me
They dug me my very own garden
Gave me sunshine, made me happy

Nice dream, nice dream
Nice dream

I call up my friend, the good angel
But she’s out with her answerphone
She says she would love to come help but
The sea would electrocute us all

Nice dream, nice dream
Nice dream, nice dream
Nice dream, nice dream
Nice dream

If you think that you’re strong enough
If you think you belong enough
If you think that you’re strong enough
If you think you belong enough

[Just as well Just as well Just as well]

Nice dream, nice dream
Nice dream, nice dream

 

SONG INFORMATION

Released: March 1995
Found on:The Bends

This song revels in a happy-life fantasy, but concludes that it can be nothing more than a “nice dream.” Heard at the end of the track are selections from an Artic-sounds tape of John Leckie’s. The demo version, available on the compilation Volume 13, is mainly an acoustic number featuring organ and strings.

Thom: “We all debuted playing acoustic guitar on this in a sort of cosmic Kumbaya outside the studio. There’s this awful photograph of us all sitting on a lawn with headphones on. The lyrics came out of a half-drunk dream I had, one of those where you don’t really sleep properly. It’s about our relationship with people generally.”
