This track finds Gregory Porter observing the vivid imagination of his three-year-old son Demyan as he plays. "I love his innocence and even though at times I do worry about the world we live in, my job is to guide him," Porter told The Sun.
"That's what Day Dream is about," he continued. "It's saying, 'I'm going to give you as much as I can and warn you about the ups and the downs but pray that you keep your childhood and youthful optimism for as long as you can.'"
"I don't discourage his playful innocence as I am inspired by him," Porter concluded, "but I do worry about the grown-up life ahead."
