Halloween Lyrics

Hey little dreamer's eyes open and staring up at me
Oh little lonely eyes open and radiant

Wait until I come and I will steal you
Wait until I come I'll take your soul
Wait until I come and I will steal you
Wait until I come and I won't...

    You guys are right, it is about Julia Grey a woman he proposed to several times. All I've got to say is what the fuck is wrong with her? How can you turn down David J. Matthews?????

    The two previous interpretations both carry truth. His girlfriend keeps declining his proposals because the relationship didn't mean anything to her except the sex. "Tell us you are satisfied with fucking" is his desire for her to just give him a reason for why she doesn't think of him as a husband. "Lead oh and everyone go. Well leave me on the night" is him admitting to be controlled by her desires, and then feeling lonely after their physical relationship was fulfilled. But still the emotional and intimate side was still missing.

    This song is about his old girlfriend Julia Grey. He asked her to marry him multiple times and she denied him. This song is about his anger toward her. It is a very emotional song and dave does not play it much in concert.
