Last Night I Dreamed You Didn't Love Me

This song is by The Tragically Hip and appears on the album World Container (2006).

You kissed my fingers and made me love you
You kissed my fingers and made me love you

Last night when we went to hell
When the blood-starred curtain fell
Men were turning on their machines
Making everything mean

Fires burned, cold values clashed
Good and evil were all dry grass
No child-ghost, no singing bird
No last laugh, no last word

Last night I dreamed, last night I dreamed
Darkly nurtured dreams
None of them were quite as frightening, oh
Canada emptied, there was me
Featureless and freezing
Last night I dreamed you didn't love me

You kissed my fingers and made me love you
You kissed my fingers and made me love you

Last night you left me derelict
And disappeared for ages
You said, "Honey, save those
Tears of yours for the show"

Last night I dreamed, last night I dreamed
Darkly nurtured dreams
None of them were half as frightening, oh
Canada emptied, there was me
Beside you featureless and freezing
Last night I dreamed you didn't love me
You didn't love me

What's happening to you?
Why don't you love me like you used to?
When you kissed my fingers and you made me love you
When you kissed my fingers and you made me love you

Last night I dreamed, last night I dreamed
Darkly nurtured dreams
None of them, none as frightening, oh
Awake, empty and out of sleep
You were beside me gently breathing
Last night I dreamed you didn't love me
You didn't love me
You didn't love me

Why don't you love me like you used to?
When you kissed my fingers and you made me love you
When you kissed my fingers and you made me love you

Notes

no child ghost...
The departed spirit of a child is often referred to in this way. A photo of a child ghost, likely bullshit, but still really creepy, can be found [here].
