Dream Girl

Album: The Best of Me (2014)
  • You couldn't write a book like this if you tried
    Boy, you'd lose your mind
    But girl, you got too many colors to be read and black and white

    It's past the point of keeping me up at night
    Now it's more like a beautiful movie that never ends
    Wanna close my eyes and play it again

    Dream girl, look my way
    Baby, come and wake me, only you can make me
    Dream, girl, dream this way
    And you don't even know my name, oh
    Dream girl, if you only knew
    How much you amaze me and it's crazy, but a boy can
    Dream, girl
    Yeah and you're my dream girl

    I'm speaking with my heart when my lips don't move
    It's all that I can do
    It skips like a record and it sinks like a stone as I fall for you

    I wish you could hear me and I wish I was getting through
    But it seems like every time we get close, all my systems go down
    And I'm back where I started and for crying out loud

    Dream girl, look my way
    Baby, come and wake me, only you can make me
    Dream, girl, dream this way
    And you don't even know my name, oh
    Dream girl, if you only knew
    How much you amaze me, it's crazy, but a boy can
    Dream, girl
    Oh, you're my dream girl

    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Oh, this ain't just a phase or a trip that I'm on
    Words ain't enough, so I wrote you a song
    And it says

    Dream girl, look my way
    Baby, come and wake me, only you can make me
    Dream, girl, dream this way
    'Cause you don't even know my name

    Dream girl, if you only knew
    How much you amaze me, it's crazy, but a boy can
    Dream, girl
    Yeah and you're my dream girl
    Baby, don't you come into my dream, girl, oh
    And I can dream, girl Writer/s: GORDIE SAMPSON, HUNTER EASTON HAYES
