Once Upon A Dream - Lana del Rey


www.last.fmby Simon Cleary 

The Experience: Sung so slowly as if she herself was waking up, Once Upon A Dream haunts us with the hope that you'll love me at once... 

Official Video: Angelina Jolie plays the Maleficient queen, matching her effortlessly evil gestures perfectly with Lana's deliberately slow lyrics. All the while childhood memories, innocence and the fight to evil blend into Sleeping Beauty's Dream.


The Meaning of Lana del Rey's Once Upon A Dream is wondering if the love you dreamed about was real, will happen, or fall apart. We all dream about love, to walk with you once upon a dream. The question is whether I'll wake up to you'll love me all at once, or if I'll face the cold shower of visions are seldom all they seem. I need my once upon a dream to believe love can be perfect - but I need to perfect it day-by-day to reach that dream.

Ask Yourself: Do I believe in love like a dream? Or do I work to build it up especially when I'm awake


LYRICS:
I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
Yet I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream

But if I know you, I know what you do
You love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
And I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream

But if I know you, I know what you do
You love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream
