Lyrics

Last night I dreamt
that somebody loved me
no hope - but no harm
just another false alarm
Last night I felt
real arms around me
no hope - no harm
just another false alarm
so, tell me how long
before the last one?
and tell me how long
before the right one?
this story is old - I KNOW
but it goes on
this story is old - I KNOW
but it goes on

"Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" is a power ballad by the English rock band the Smiths, written by singer Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr. It appears as the sixth track on the band's final album Strangeways, Here We Come (1987). Featuring a backdrop of crowd noises from the miners' strike of 1984–85, the song is a favorite of both Morrissey and Marr. The song was released as the third and final UK single from Strangeways in December 1987. Billed as "The Last Single" as the band had already broken up, it reached number 30 in the UK Singles Chart. Despite its commercial underachievement, "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" has seen critical acclaim for Marr's guitar work and Morrissey's sombre lyricism. It has since appeared on multiple compilation albums and has been ranked by music writers as one of the band's best songs.
