Thread Name: Origins: John o' Dreams (Bill Caddick)
Subject: RE: John O' Dreams
From the context of the song, my guess would be a mythical figure not unlike The Sandman. I.E. dreams personified. The song seems to be simply a wish for the listener to have pleasant dreams. Your Shakespearean reference might shed a little more light. Who was the character John A'Dreams? What play?

I like the song a lot, seems like a great one to end a concert with.
