In another land where the breeze and the Trees and flowers were blue I stood and held your hand. And the grass grew high and the feathers floated by I stood and held your hand. And nobody else's hand will ever do Nobody else will do Then I awoke Was this some kind of joke Much to my surprise I opened my eyes.
We walked across the sand and the sea and The sky and the castles were blue. I stood and held your hand. And the spray flew high and the feathers floated by I stood and held your hand. And nobody else's hand will ever do Nobody else will do Then I awoke Was this some kind of joke Much to my surprise When I opened my eyes.
We heard the trumpets blow and the sky Turned red when I accidentally said That I didn't know how I came to be here Not fast asleep in bed. I stood and held your hand. And nobody else's hand will ever do Nobody else's hand Then I awoke Was this some kind of joke I opened my eyes. Much to my surprise.

J Menar from LouisianaI see a man caught up in an old fashioned romance - in a dream. He is in love. Then he awakes to the hard, rock n roll world and he is, suddenly, a hard, modern, cynical man, denying his softer feelings. Then he falls asleep again and reaches, again, the love and the softer side of himself. I see it as a tragedy. It is an unusual song to find on a Rolling Stones album.
Joe from Seattle, WaAwesome song!
Scott from Boston, MaOn the album version, you can hear Bill snoring at the end. One night, Bill fell asleep in the studio, so Mick and Keith recorded him snoring and tagged it onto the end of his song without him knowing. Bill didn't find out until he listened to the final version of the album. The snoring doesn't appear on the single.
Craig from Melbourne, AustraliaOnly 1 other Bill Wyman song has made it onto a Rolling Stones record. THat song is "Downtown Suzie", sung by Jagger, which is on the compilation album Metamorphosis.
Brian from Alluhrst, Njthis is a great song i wish bill wyman sang lead on more songs
Barry from New York, NyOne of my favorite songs on this underrated album. I never felt that Their Satanic Majesty's Request was a ripoff of Sgt Pepper like some people have said.
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
