Dream - Imagine Dragons





The Experience: All these sorrows I have seen, they lead me to believe that everything's a mess. But I wanna dream. We were made to dream, against all odds...




Music video: Waiting.

The Meaning of Dream: Dream celebrates the idealistic dreams of a teenager, who sees the prettiest of lights that hang the hallwaysof the home and doesn't hear the cries from the strangers out at night. Yet this cries are real, so is the idealist just living in a dream? Yes. Yet while recognizing this, the song repeats but I wanna dream. Why? We don't change dark reality just by accepting it. We accept it, we dream bigger than the dark, and live to make that dream a reality—to make reality our dream. 

Ask yourselfDo I still dream? Have I given up on high ideals, or will I give them another chance?


LYRICS:

In the dark
and I'm right on the middle mark
I'm just in the tier of everything that rides below
the surface.
And I watch from a distance seventeen
and I'm short of the others' dreams of being golden
and on top.
It's not what you painted in my head,
There's so much there instead of all the colors
that I saw.

We all are living in a dream,
but life ain't what it seems,
Oh everything's a mess!
and all these sorrows I have seen
they lead me to believe
that everything's a mess!

But I wanna dream
I wanna dream
leave me to dream.

In the eyes
of a teenage crystallized,
oh the prettiest of lights that hang the hallways
of the home.
And the cries from the strangers out at night,
they don't keep us up at night,
we have the curtains drawn and closed.

We all are living in a dream,
but life ain't what it seems
Oh everything's a mess!
And all these sorrows I have seen,
they lead me to believe
that everything's a mess!

But I wanna dream,
I wanna dream,
leave me to dream.

Ooh, ooh, ooh.
Oh!

I know all your reasons
To keep me from seeing
Everything is actually a mess.
But now I am leaving
All of us were only dreaming
Everything is actually a mess.

We all are living in a dream,
but life ain't what it seems
Oh everything's a mess!
And all these sorrows I have seen,
they lead me to believe
that everything's a mess!

But I wanna dream,
I wanna dream,
leave me to dream.

I wanna dream,
I wanna dream,
leave me to dream.
