    The first verse:

    The other night, dear

    As I lay sleeping

    I dreamt I held you in my arms

    But when I woke, dear

    I was mistaken

    So I hung my head and I cried

    I always took it to mean the person is mourning the loss of a loved one and they dreamed they were still alive.

    Also, I once heard that this song was about a horse named Sunshine. 🤷‍♂️

      It goes on like this:

      You told me once, dear, you really loved me
      And no one else could come between
      But now you’ve left me and love another
      You have shattered all of my dreams

      So it’s really about a break up
