In All My Dreams I Drown

Sung by

Terrance Zdunich and Jessica Lowndes

In All My Dreams I Drown is a song sung by Lucifer and Tamara with Wick and the Woe Maidens playing a minor role. In the song, they sing about a captain who is trying to get a girl to go to sleep but she wants to smash, as the ship they are in sinks, but she doesn't want to since she always dreams that she drowns. The song was cut from the movie although it plays during the credits.

LyricsEdit

The ship, it swayed
Heave-ho, heave-ho
On the dark and stormy blue
And I held tight to the captain's might
As he pulled up his trews

"You haven't slept,"
Heave-ho, he said
"In many suns and moons."
"Oh, I will sleep when we reach shore,
And pray we get there soon."

He said, "Now hush, love
Here's your gown
There's the bed
Lanterns down."
But I don't want to go to sleep
In all my dreams I drown

The captain howled
Heave-ho, heave-ho
And tied me up with sheets
"A storm is brewing in the south,
It's time you go to sleep."

His berth, it rocked
Heave-ho, heave-ho
The ocean gnashed and moaned
Like Jonah, we'll be swallowed whole
And spat back teeth and bones

He said, "Now hush, love
Here's your gown
There's the bed
Lanterns down."
But I don't want to go to sleep
In all my dreams I drown

Captain, Captain!
I will do your chores
I will warm your cot at night
And mop your cabin floors
Scold me, hold me!
I'll be yours to keep
The only thing I beg of you
Don't make me go to sleep

The sky, it flashed
Heave-ho, heave-ho
His pillow towed to the brink
The curtains ran between my legs
As we began to sink

I closed my eyes
Heave-ho, heave-ho
As the ship was rent and felled
Eddies in the water headed
To the mouth of Hell

"Hush now, hush, love
Here's your gown
There's the bed
Lanterns down."
I'm begging you, please wake me up
In all my dreams I...

Trivia Edit

  • According to director Darren Bousman, "In All My Dreams I Drown" was supposed to take place after the song "The Devil's Carnival". Tamara would find herself in the carnival ring, be seduced by Lucifer, then awake again, thus being rendered redundant.
  • The meaning of the song is not clear, although it is possible that Lucifer tried to get Tamara to learn her lesson of not trusting everyone and prevent her from having to face the carnies.
