Dreamin'

Album: The Red Album (2008)
  • [Chorus]
    I'm dreamin'
    In the mornin'
    I'm dreamin' all
    Through the night
    And when I'm dreamin'
    I know
    That it's all right
    Woo, hoo, hoa
    I'm dreamin'
    In the evening
    I'm dreamin'
    All through the day
    And when I'm dreamin'
    I know that it's okay
    Woo, hoo, hoa

    Daddy says
    I've gotta pay
    Some bills
    So I can learn
    To be responsible
    Some day I'll have
    A family of my own
    And they
    Will need for me
    To be full grown

    [Chorus]

    Teacher says
    I gotta learn some facts
    So I can make it in
    The Widener Stacks
    These are days
    That will define my life
    I shouldn't waste them
    On these friends of mine

    But I
    Gotta be a big boy
    (Cause I really want a chance)
    Gotta pick up my toys
    (Cause I really want a chance)

    When I start to feel
    The feeling comin' over me
    (I really want a chance)
    I soon forget
    All about responsibility
    (I really want a chance)
    I walk around
    In a wide-awake daydream
    (I really want a chance)
    Things are better out here
    Than they might seem

    There are bluebirds
    In the meadows
    And the bees
    Are flying around
    And the gosling's
    At the river
    At a loss so far
    From the ground

    I am running
    (I am running)
    Through the meadow
    (Through the meadow)
    And the sun is
    (And the sun is)
    Shining on me
    (Shining on me)
    I am singing
    (I am singing)
    My voice is ringing
    (My voice is ringing)
    I can sing so loud
    (I can sing so loud)

    And the angels
    (And the angels)
    In the heavens
    (In the heavens)
    They are wondering
    (They are wondering)
    "Why am I so glad?"
    (Why am I so glad?)
    "Why am I so glad?"
    (Why am I so glad?)
    "Why am I so"
    (Why am I so)
    "Why am I so"
    (Why am I so)
    I am running
    (I am running)
    Through the meadow
    (Through the meadow)
    And the sun is
    (And the sun is)
    Shining on me
    (Shining on me)
    I am singing
    (I am singing)
    My voice is ringing
    (My voice is ringing)
    I can sing so loud
    (I can sing so loud)

    [Chorus]

    I don't want to get
    With your program
    I don't want to get
    With your program
    I don't want to get
    With your program
    Take back the love Writer/s: RIVERS CUOMO

  • Rotunda from Tulsa, OkWhen the "Red Album" came out I loved all the songs on it. But "Dreamin" has such a compelling melody---and the lyrics are perfecto. Last weekend me & my hubby held a Yard Sale & he whipped out his CD of "The Red Album" and played it. We had plenty of customers who remembered the album & were Weezer fans!!! Surprise surprise! And "Dreamin" had a lot of people humming & singing along to it. My dear hubby "Mr. Good Body" thought some of the people were off their rockers. Anyway I love this song. And I love the lead vocals on this track. Rock it, Weezer!
  • Ashley from Tonopah, AzI totally agree with Fatima. I love this song!
