Behind the Wall of Sleep by The Smithereens

Album: Especially For YouReleased: 1986
  • In this song, the singer has very strong feelings for a girl that he can't attain. All he can do is think about her in his dreams.
  • There are some references to real people in this song: Jeanie Shrimpton was a model in the '60s, and Bill Wyman was the bass player in The Rolling Stones. (thanks, John - Los Angeles, CA)

Some of the coolest lyrics from one of the best songs of the 80s!John - Beltsville, Md
This song is very powerful and It reminds me of college about this goth chick I was in love with at the time. I still dream of her behind the wall of sleep...Jim - Long Beach, Ca
