Nelly’s sister died of leukemia in 2005. Since then, he hasn’t been writing songs. Then, his sister came in a dream. She told him to write a song to sooth him. Listen to the song. The lyrics have so much more meaning now…
“I was thinking ‘bout her, thinking about me
Thinking about us, what we gonna be,
open my eyes, and it’s only just a dream.
So I travel back, down that road,
will she come back? no one knows,
I realize, it was only just a dream.”
