No Sleep to Dream - Zella Day



The Experience: As we seek true love in life it is easy to feel like we are in the midst of a barren desert. In No Sleep to Dream Zella Day tells us about her pursuit of true love and reveals part of the secret to finding it.


Music video: Zella is alone in an arid wasteland searching for something (a distant light) that only her telescope (her heart) reveals to her. When she reaches the top of a distant mountain she finds a man there with his own set of binoculars with which he too is seeking. For a moment hope alights in her eyes and she slowly moves towards him. As he moves in to kiss her she protects her telescope (heart) and when he gets too close she pulls away and leaves him standing alone and dissapointed. Disheartened she continues her search setting out again into the wasteland pursuing a similar light (love) she can see on another distant mountain. As she journeys you can see the frustration, hurt, and exhaustion in her eyes revealing that she has been searching for a long time.
As night comes Zella is still alone and returns to her camp to sadly stare into her campfir. As she drifts off to sleep each of the people she has met in her journey return to her. Their presence scares her, but she lets them come near and touch her until one man tries to take her telescope (heart) by force and she breaks free only to find that it was all a dream.
Frightened, she sets off again into the hills looking for something and finds a ghostly young lady with a larger telescope who invites her to try it out. As she looks into the sky she finds the light (love) she has been following is bigger and more beautiful than she had ever expected. It is so powerful that it begins to reflect in her own eyes and recolors how she sees her entire world. Looking through this telescope she discovers the light (love) she is pursuing is not on the earth at all, but lies beyond it. With this new vision her demeanor changes as she heads off again into the desert now with a new way of seeing her world. Its still a desert and she is still alone, but she is able to see the light (love) she is searching for all around her and this gives her hope as she continues her journey.


The Meaning: We all are yearning for a love that fills the hole we each sense within. Even though most of what we find is a "love" that destroys we know there is something better out there which we must keep pursuing. She's a lady in waiting for a ghost man to come... we each are waiting for someone who is worthy of our love, for someone who will truly love us in a way that will really fill the hole within. In the meantime we might settle for less ...driving cows just for now...its how your body moves, but we each know there is more and that we will find it if we continue searching.

Ask yourself: Do I listen to my heart, letting it guide me towards the true love that alone will satisfy it? Do I also keep it safe from those who would try to take it by force and who therefore are unworthy of touching it?



LYRICS for No Sleep to Dream:

Huuuuu...
On a bird on a plane
now its easier
Men of mars fantasize of a heart that works
Girls and boys they enjoy
a love that destroys
Stack them in, let them win
It's what they are yearning for
ohhhhh

She's a lady in waiting for a ghost man to come
Didn't show, now she knows
That all good people don't get love they deserve

All through the night
All through the night
All through the night
Don't need sleep to dream

All through the night
All through the night
All through the night
Don't need sleep to dream
Don't need sleep to dream
Don't need sleep to dream
Don't need sleep to dream

Driving cows just for now
Until it all runs dry
Stepping two
Down to two
It's how your body moves
As I stand lips are chapped
On the words that care
We don't sleep, we need dreams
That all good people can get love they deserve

All through the night
All through the night
All through the night
Don't need sleep to dream

All through the night
All through the night
All through the night
Don't need sleep to dream
Don't need sleep to dream
Don't need sleep to dream
Don't need sleep to dream

She's a lady in waiting for a ghost man to come
Don't exist, thought they did
Where do we learn this from?

Yeah its what life deserves
Hanging up on the word
It's a threat thats exact
And every ones trying to brag it

All through the night
All through the night
All through the night
Don't need sleep to dream

All through the night
All through the night
All through the night
Don't need sleep to dream
Don't need sleep to dream
Don't need sleep to dream
Don't need sleep to dream

Oooohhhhh
