The wonderful Mel (@_mle_s) posted these lyrics. She's the best! Maybe you can help her fill in the gaps!

Dreams

I had a dream that I kept safe
In the corner of my mind
I imagined someday
This love of mine would arrive

I was searching for someone
I knew did not exist
And I could never imagine
That dreams could feel like this

Good thing some dreams don't come true
'Cause I wouldn't be looking at you
'Cause now each day
When I wake up you're right next to me
And you’re better than I could ever dream

Like a painting on the wall
Can't describe it 'til you see it
Make it harder to not fall for you
The way you look at me
The dream I had before you
It all meant everything
The dream I had before you
Is a million miles away

Good thing some dreams don't come true
'Cause I wouldn't be looking at you
'Cause now each day
When I wake up you're right next to me
And you’re better than I could ever

Can't imagine life without you
If I could I wouldn't want to
Girl, I want forever with you

'Cause now each day
When I wake up you're right next to me
And you’re better than I could ever

Dream
Dream

Good thing some dreams don't come true

And I could never imagine
The dreams _____ felt like this

Instead - "that dreams can feel like this", or " the dreams that have filled my head", or lol I just don't know!




'Cause now each day
When I wake up you're right next to me
__________________ I could ever
Dream


Could the blank be "and you're better than"




The way you look at me
The dream I had before you
__________ every day
__________ saw you
Was a million miles away


1st blank - "would all make everything"

2nd Blank - "The moment that I saw you"




Can't imagine life without you
If I could I wouldn't want to

How about something along the lines of "now I want forever with you"

The dreams _____ felt like this


Or could this be..

That dreams could fail like this?



I imagined someday
This love of mine would arrive



Also are we sure this is....

This love of mine would arrive?

For some reason I hear lie or die instead of arrive?


LOL I wish he would just release all his lyrics!!!! Guess i'm talking to myself in this thread.

Jenna, I think you got most of the blanks right, but I'm really bad at this, LOL! We need to ask Christina to check this. Very Happy

Hi Jenna,

I'm reading the thread. Smile I couldn't figure out the words so didn't add to it. I second the request for Christina's super-listening skills!

I'm sorry it took so long for me to get around to doing this! It's the end of the semester so I have projects and papers and finals, plus work. I'm just sooooo busy! Naturally, the only free time I have is at 3 a.m. haha Smile

Here's what I got:

___________________________________

I had a dream that I kept safe
In the corner of my mind
I imagined someday
This love of mine would arrive

I was searching for someone
I knew did not exist
And I could never imagine
That dreams could feel like this

Good thing some dreams don't come true
'Cause I wouldn't be looking at you
'Cause now each day
When I wake up you're right next to me
And you’re better than I could ever dream

You’re like a painting on the wall
Can't describe it 'til you see it
You make it harder to not fall for you
The way you look at me
The dream I had before you
It all meant everything
The dream I had before you (Knowing that I saw you [airport version])
Is a million miles away

Good thing some dreams don't come true
'Cause I wouldn't be looking at you
'Cause now each day
When I wake up you're right next to me
And you’re better than I could ever …

Can't imagine life without you
If I could, well I wouldn't want to
Girl I won’t forget you, yeeaaaah

'Cause now each day
When I wake up you're right next to me
And you’re better than I could ever dream
Dream, yeeeahhh

Good thing some dreams don't come true

_____________________________________

There are only two words I'm not sure of, but I put what I think he is saying (those words are highlighted in red). The different lyrics from the airport version are highlighted in blue and I believe were just a flub because those words don't really make sense at that part. Either that or he meant to say "Knowing that I saw you FROM a million miles away". But I don't know, that still doesn't really make sense.

The story of this song is that he had an ideal girl (a dream girl) that he expected to find someday but a girl came into his life that ended up being much better than his dream girl. I really think this song is about his current girlfriend. And I think a lot of his other songs are about his ex girlfriend because they talk about a lot of breakup issues. I love how he is writing music that reflects his life because it is truly coming from his heart and is precisely why his lyrics are so great. The music is great too. Like, in Dreams how it starts out kind of quiet and builds up. I think the part where the music starts getting louder reflects how intense his feelings are for her. I love it.

And, being that I am a HUGE lyric person I can now say I love this song even more. I knew that it sounded great when I heard but the lyrics made me fall in love. New #1 favorite for me!

Thanks Christina! I was wondering which version was correct but now that the lyrics have been figured out I'm thinking the version at Grace Spring Church might be correct because they just make more sense.



Can't imagine life without you
If I could, well I wouldn't want to
Girl I won’t forget you, yeeaaaah


I still hear this last line as...

Now I want forever with you


I agree Christina I felt the song was about his current girlfriend as well. I also love that he writes from his heart! I think that's what makes his music so incredible! I have always loved his passion and soul!


Thanks so much to Mels, Liana, and Christina for working on figuring out the lyrics and sharing them with us Very Happy

Thank you, Christina & Jenna! I love listening to the song with the lyrics in front of me! Sounds even better!

I also hear "Girl, I want forever with you..."

I think "Now I want forever with you" is a better lyric and IMO is more in context with the song. Why would he forget her when he is with her?

So Matt if the line is "Girl I won't forget you yeahhh" you can have my line free of charge and you don't have to give me song writing either lol!

Not sure how I missed mattyfan's guess of "Girl I want forever with you" when I read her post the first time?


Ohhh mattyfan is onto something! Maybe it is girl instead of now so maybe we both are a little right?


Hopefully next show we will get a better audio of the song and Matt will sing it clearer!

It probably is "Girl I want forever with you" because I definitely heard the word "girl" and when I heard "won't", it's probably "want" and I heard "for -- ???" so it's probably forever instead of forget... but that's why I highlighted it in red! I wasn't sure on that word. Smile

Well I am going to fill in the first post with the new figured out lyrics. If we learn later they are something else we can simply change it! Thanks guys!!!
