The mind of a Smokie fan
* just to let you all know: I don't own any content in the text to follow. It was written by Mel Moriarty, who's used the titles of Smokie songs to create the story you might be (not) reading. :) Enjoy (I totally love it, by the way)!
Still dreaming, I was outside this place.The man at the door asked me for 'A Fistful Of Dollars' to get in'. I handed him my money but he wanted 'A Few Dollars More'. Greedy git, I thought. Inside, the floor was full of 'Young Hearts'. I was out of my league. I was honestly 'Chasing Shadows'.
Then 'One Night In Vienna', as 'The Rain Came Down', I jumped off the 'Midnight Train'. I took 'Desperate Measures'. Strange things can happen in the 'Heat of the night'. I felt good. I felt great to be honest. I must have had 'A Million Conversations' with 'Wild Angels', girls that had 'Hungry Eyes' but they were looking for love for all the 'Wrong Reasons'. They needed to 'Stop rewind', and 'Think about the night' or else they'd end up on the 'Boulevard Of Broken Dreams'. I still felt like 'Moving mountains' and I saw this beautiful girl. She was 'Looking Daggers' at me, but something told me to talk to her. Before I did, I had some 'Whiskey In The Jar' to give me more courage. I turned to face her again, she looked at me and said.'You're So Vain'. I smiled. I've been 'Looking For You', I said. 'You just want some 'Hot Lovin'', she replied. Only 'When Its The Right Time' I said. I want someone to 'Be My Baby' and 'No Matter What' you say, 'I Wont Back Down'.
I felt like I knew this girl 'All My Life'. This was strange but so familiar. 'I'd Die For You', I said. Something in her eyes told me she believed me. 'Its Your Life' she said,but 'If You Think You Know How To Love Me' then go right ahead. 'Don't Play That Game With Me' I said. 'My Heart Is True'. She laughed uncontrollably. 'All She Ever Really Wanted' was someone who would love her, cherish her and 'Respect' her. 'I Swear' I was on a 'Runaway Train'. I was already in love. 'I Can't Fight This Feeling' I thought.
I invited her to a 'Garden Party', I'll meet you here 'Tomorrow'. 'Why' wait till then', she replied and said 'I'll Meet You At Midnight'. We went to 'Nan-Li-Wans' party and saw an old friend there. I didn't want her ruining our date so I avoided her as much as possible. I know you should 'Never Turn Your back On Your Friends', but nothing was going to ruin this beautiful evening. We really were 'Sailing'. 'I'm 'Relying On You' to escort me safely home, she said. 'You better believe I will, I thought. As we got to her front door I was gutted that the night was over, but she invited me in for coffee. We sat on the sofa and 'Every Little Kiss' was like a gift from heaven.
The doorbell rang, her neighbour. Oh No....!! My old friend from the party. Not possible I thought, but it was indeed 'Alice'. I was stunned, and when she left with her teabags, I said .'I cant believe you know her', she's an old friend that used to go out with my mate. 'I know her well 'cos for 24 years I've been 'Living Next Door To Alice'.
The dream ended, I opened my eyes grieving for the girl I was with. Lost forever in my imagination. I never even knew her name....'Carol?, 'Angelina'?, 'Mariah'???? Could have been any one of a million names and here I was back in my bed thinking of her, thinking about 'What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted'? 'How Long' if ever ,will I find that feeling again? 'Broken Hearts' suck, I thought, 'Only Love Hurts' this much. The only thing I could do was to 'Hold On For The Night' and I would dream of her again.
Then there she lay, beside me. Was I dreaming again? No, not dreaming but wide awake looking at the woman of my dreams sleeping soundly. 'Baby Its You', I whispered breathlessly. Her eyes opened. What's wrong?, she asked. 'You look terrible'. 'I Dont Wanna Talk About it', I said,..'just a dream. She held me, and said 'You're just a dream'. When you 'Lay Back In The Arms Of Someone' you love, there is no feeling in the world like it and here I was with the girl of my dreams, my beautiful Wife........'Aint It Funny How It Works'?
