Lyrics

Last night I dreamt That somebody loved me No hope, 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?

The story is old - I know But it goes on The story is old - I know

But it goes on Oh, goes on And on Oh, goes on And on

"Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" is a song by the English rock band the Smiths. Released as a single in December 1987, it reached No. 30 in the UK Singles Chart. It was the last of three UK singles from the band's fourth and final studio album, Strangeways, Here We Come. The album version contains a one-minute and 55-second introduction, consisting of piano playing against a backdrop of crowd noises from the miners' strike of 1984–85. The 7" single release does not include the introduction, while the 12" single does. Both Morrissey and Johnny Marr, the co-writers, have nominated it as the best Smiths song.
