All Dressed Up In Dreams

"All Dressed Up In Dreams" by The 6ths, always seems to remind of the when I had the misfortune of dating someone who seemed to make a habit of being unavailable or not showing up in general. Such fun teen years. Every time he had an excuse for not showing up, I'd glower and turn this song on. The final straw was when I found out from a reliable source that he was seeing four other girls at the same time including someone I knew from youth orchestra. I confronted him, which was met with some blustering and curt send off where he claimed I could forget about ever hearing from him again. I had the last laugh though when he went out of his way to come up to me at Lilith Faire the following summer to see how I was and to lament the fact that I had cut my long hair into a chin-length layered-do.

This is a more recent performance of the song. Unfortunately, the opening lyrics are cut off but the sound quality is better than the other video I found online.


I was happy
which is not like me at all
for an hour
I was feeling ten feet tall
and I had myself a ball
I was heading for a fall

I got all dressed up in dreams
and I waited by the door
but you never even called
to tell me you don't love me anymore

You're so pretty
everybody falls for you
in this city
it's the only thing to do
so I cried for 16 days
and I cried in 16 ways

I got all dressed up in dreams
and I waited by the door
but you never even called
to tell me you don't love me anymore

you said you'd arrive at 8
but you're 17 days late

I got all dressed up in dreams
and I waited by the door
but you never even called
to tell me you don't love me anymore

so I wander in the rain
as I slowly go insane

I got all dressed up in dreams
and I waited by the door
but you never even called
to tell me you don't love me anymore

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
