The Cranberries - Dreams - Meaning of the song
Written by Dolores O'Riordan and Cranberries lead guitarist Noel Hogan, "Dreams" is the second charting single by The Cranberries, from their first album. Together with "Linger," these two singles forged a name for the band that carried them until the thundering (and thunderously successful) "Zombie" from their second album.
This is a very hopeful song in which frontwoman Dolores O'Riordan sings about meeting a special someone who makes her deliriously happy.
"I wrote that about my first love when I was living in Ireland. It's about feeling really in love for the first time."
Dreams - Lyrics
Oh, my life Is changing everyday In every possible way And oh, my dreams It's never quite as it seems Never quite as it seems I know I felt like this before But now I'm feeling it even more Because it came from you Then I open up and see The person falling here is me A different way to be Aaah, la-a-la-aaah La la laaaa La-a-la-aah La-ah ah aaah I want more Impossible to ignore Impossible to ignore And they'll come true Impossible not to do Impossible not to do And now I tell you openly You have my heart so don't hurt me You're what I couldn't find A totally amazing mind So understanding and so kind You're everything to me Oh, my life Is changing everyday In every possible way And oh, my dreams It's never quite as it seems 'Cause you're a dream to me Dream to me
