  • What I want, you've got
    And it might be hard to handle
    But like the flame that burns the candle
    The candle feeds the flame, yeah yeah

    What I've got's full stock of thoughts and dreams that scatter
    You pull them all together
    And how, I can't explain,
    Oh yeah, well well you
    You make my dreams come true
    Well well you, oh yeah
    You make my dreams come true

    Girl oh yeah

    On a night when bad dreams become a screamer
    When they're messin' with a dreamer
    I can laugh it in the face

    Twist and shout my way out
    And wrap yourself around me
    'Cause I ain't the way you found me
    And I'll never be the same, oh yeah

    Well 'cause you,
    You make my dreams come true, oh yeah
    Well well you, ooh ooh
    You make my dreams come true, whoa yeah

    Well listen to this, oh

    I'm down on the daydream
    Oh that sleepwalk should be over by now
    I know
    Ah you, yeah yeah you make my dreams come true, oh yeah
    I've been waiting for, waiting for you girl, oh yeah
    You make my dreams come true
    Make you make you make,
    I've been waiting for, waiting for you girl
    All night
    You make my dreams come true, oh whoa whoa
    I've been waiting for, waiting for, waiting for, waiting for,
    Waiting for, waiting for, waiting for

    Woo ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
    I've been waiting for you girl
