Talking In Your Sleep - The Romantics

In the pop song Talking In Your Sleep, the Romantics talk about how a lover's unfaithfulness was discovered by a sleepy dream.

The singer says how the relationship seemed great until the partner went to sleep -

When you close your eyes and go to sleep
And it's down to the sound of a heartbeat
I can hear the things that you're dreaming about
When you open up your heart and the truth comes out

The singer thought everything was fine, until infidelities were revealed in sleep-talking ...

I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talking in your sleep

It's relatively common for people to talk in their sleep, when they are not quite asleep and are saying in real life what their dream self is talking about. It's probably one of those lessons every relationship should live by - if you are honest with your partner while awake, you don't need to worry about a dream giving your secrets away.
