My Bloody Valentine - When You Sleep Lyrics

When I look at you
Oh, I don't know what's real
Once in a while
And you make me laugh
And I'll see you tomorrow
And it won't be long
Once in a while
Then you take me down
Then you walk away

When you said 'I do'
Oh, I don't believe you
I can't forget it, no
When you sleep tomorrow
And it won't be long
Once in a while
When you make me smile
And you turn your long blond hair

When I look at you
Oh, I don't know what's real
Once in a while
And you make me laugh
And I'll see you tomorrow
And it won't be long
Once in a while
Then you take me down
Then you walk away

  15. Alex Forbes

    Love this album so much, one of a kind ❤️

  16. R. Michael Duttera

    Like Sonic Youth there's bits of gems in their music, but too often surrounded in a mire of a lot of junk that;'s little better than noise. Have Loveless album but I rarely play it.

    First time I heard this song was on my 20th birthday. I was an Airman in the Air Force stationed overseas in Japan. The drinking age in Japan is 20 rather than 21, so you can imagine how I spent my birthday lol. Me & some wingmen went out to get shitfaced, & that’s exactly what happened. That night was great, I’ll never forget it. The night was coming to an end & we had to get back on base before curfew, so we decided to call it quits & head back. When we got back on base, my buddy driving (the only sober one amongst the four of us) pulled into the parking lot of the dorms, & we just sat there. Me (the drunkest amongst the four of us lol) decided to pour out into my friends & vent. They say the truth comes out when you’re drunk...I told them how I had thought of taking my life. The car got silent. I told them that there was no point in my existence & that death shouldn’t have such a negative connotation because, honestly, it’s the easiest thing we’ll ever have to do. I felt like death would’ve been better for me. I told them that it wasn’t depression, but boredom. I felt that I didn’t have much to live for, & that I wouldn’t be leaving behind much. My sober buddy (the driver) was trying to talk to me sensibly, telling me to think of my family & friends, how they would feel if I had taken my life. He also told me that he himself would personally be affected too because he was my friend. My other wingman in the back (also pretty buzzed) she became teary-eyed. She tried to comfort me, but I wasn’t sad...just numb. My last buddy in the backseat was silent, kinda as if he knew exactly what I was talking about. He didn’t say much, but he started playing music on his phone. This was the song he played. I had never listened to this band before, but when I heard this song start playing, I couldn’t hear my friends talking anymore...I couldn’t feel much either. It’s like my soul left my body & I went into so sort of astral form. Idk. Even now when I hear this song today, I think abt that night & how this song maybe saved me.

  50. thewaronPR

    The only reason they're not earth's best band is that they aren't from here.

  51. 0075667 2

  72. Matt Downer

    I crank up my bloody valentine to 11, it reminds me of an amicable breakup I had—and she didn’t know about it.

  73. Skyla Messenger

    pls help me
    i used to listen to a song that sounded like this but not quite
    the album was a light blue liquid with orange liquid drops on top
    i am struggling to find it and all i can remember is the color pink or the word flowers
    help me find it

  74. a w

    reminds me of my shoe shining daze...

  75. Eliza Brito

    The beginning of this song sounds like when you hear bad news that you didnt want to hear or when someone hurts you deeply and you feel that emptiness in your heart. Idk if it's just me lol

  76. Emiliano Villalobos

    R.I.P My bloody Valentine music on Spotify (In Latin America)

    Oxen of the Sun

    In Israel too.. Fuck this bullshit. Where am I supposed to listen to MBV now? They're not on Soundcloud too

    Jared Hawken

    Oxen of the Sun buy the actual record???

    Oxen of the Sun

    @Jared Hawken No. I'm not going to change the way I listen to my music only because of some record label dispute

    Jaz Jupiter

    and in the UK!! :(

    Michael Björk

    Sweden too, and we own this Spotify thing. Must be some rights/money bullshit 😁

  77. mauropso

    I don't know if every comment here feels optimistic or they are all just depressed.

  78. shemar smith

    Thanks Matt

  79. Gary

    i adore this song but i can't listen to it, some kind of weird nostalgia hits me and makes me cry lol EVERY SINGLE TIME

  80. OSLO Zeimantz


  81. TheAnalPunisher

    I'm feeling serious Dinosaur Jr vibes

  82. karl

    I've become increasingly certain that the "when turn your long blond hair" lyric is actually "when you turn your backwards head" which makes this song feel 50% more like a drug trip than it already does
    Although I suppose the intent is probably that each person listening can project their own lyrical interpretations/perceptions onto the vocals. I wouldn't be surprised if the different vocal takes used to record the song actually had different lyrics tbh

  83. Nick Mulae

    Wish there was some way I could see how popular this album from My Bloody Valentine was when it was released back in late 1991 and forward through the 90s. Was it popular with kids, teenagers, adults or all of the above? Was it played frequently at popular locations, friend hangouts, roller and ice rinks, parties, radios, etc.? For some reason I’m just so curious!! Was born around that era however though wasn’t born till 1993.

  84. Shammo Hamid

    Boss album.

  85. Djordje Todorovic

    dobra pesma dbi

  86. Leticia Strugala

    And I'll see you tomorrow
    And it won't be long
    Once in a while
    Then you take me down
    Then you walk away

  87. Jussara Alves

    Ai papito estou sofrendo 😭😭😭

  88. Jordan Safari

    Goddamn. I cannot believe how many years have gone. I am still here isolated up late floating drifting loves lost loves forgotten loves half remembered blurred like always ... I may be down but in love with the near despair that flirts with painful hope, boundless pangs of mysterious longing for nameless formless lovers I invent and kill in the echoing chambers of my insides peering out...sleep fails I feel too much or soul has been seek to thirst for something

  89. Nelo

    It sounds like a memory of her.

  90. Forrest Gray

    This song makes my guitar pedals horny.

  91. sheepyg

    Have no idea what the lyrics say but I don’t really care because I feel it anyway

  92. diablogenial

    Después de llevar más de 20 años escuchándola no puedo creer que lo que suene es una guitarra. Grandioso

  93. Nga Man Lee

    Can anything tell me what instruments are involved in this song, besides guitar, bass, drum?

    Richy12_M ,

    They also used a digital sampler synth, which played a sample of a flute and Butcher's voice.

    Nga Man Lee

    Richy12_M , thanks!
