11. Dreaming of You

INTRODUCTION:
I'm generally an upbeat person with a big mouth, and my music reflects that. Dreaming of You was out of my comfort zone of loud songs and big build ups, but the kind of love I wanted to illustrate wasn’t loud or crazy. It’s a constant calm even in the middle of a storm, it’s a safe feeling, almost like home, and it’s like being in the middle of a beautiful dream, but that dream is actually my life. I am so grateful to have found the love of my life; A man who stands by me no matter what, supports my dreams, keeps me grounded but still goes along with my goofiness, and shows me the kind of love that love songs are written about. You loved me when I was less than lovable, and you've shown me my happiest self.

LYRICS:

Verse 1: Oh, I’m laying next to you on the sheets. 
I don’t know what you’re thinking, but you’re 
Breathing like you’re falling asleep. 
I don’t want to wake you up to tell you, 
How grateful I am, 
To thank you for being mine. 
But I hope when you’re dreaming tonight, 
You dream of me and you smile. 
‘Cause I’ll be dreaming of you, 
And how much I love you. 

Verse 2: Always kiss me hello, kiss me goodbye. 
Kiss me anytime. 
Kiss me goodnight. 
I’ll never get tired of, 
Falling asleep in your arms. 
And when you look at me in the dark, 
You still see the light you put in my heart. 
And I’m dreaming of you, 
And how much I love you. 

Bridge: I’m sorry I don’t tell you more, 
How happy I am to be yours. 
And I hope you know that I, 
Am honored to call you mine. 
Even though I dream of you each night, 
The sweetest dreams don’t compare to my life. 
‘Cause waking up next to you, 
Is a dream come true.

LYRIC ANALYSIS:

Oh, I’m laying next to you on the sheets.  
I don’t know what you’re thinking, but you’re  
Breathing like you’re falling asleep.  - I had this line written for YEARS before writing this song to go with it.
I don’t want to wake you up to tell you,  
How grateful I am,  
To thank you for being mine.  
But I hope when you’re dreaming tonight,  
You dream of me and you smile.  
‘Cause I’ll be dreaming of you,  
And how much I love you.  

Always kiss me hello, kiss me goodbye.  
Kiss me anytime.  
Kiss me goodnight.  
I’ll never get tired of,  
Falling asleep in your arms.
And when you look at me in the dark,  
You still see the light you put in my heart. 
And I’m dreaming of you,  
And how much I love you.  

I’m sorry I don’t tell you more,  
How happy I am to be yours.  
And I hope you know that I,  
Am honored to call you mine.  - I don't vocalize my love as much as I should, and I even tend to take my boyfriend for granted sometimes. But he really is the best thing that's ever happened to me, and I really do hope he knows that.
Even though I dream of you each night,  
The sweetest dreams don’t compare to my life.  
‘Cause waking up next to you,  
Is a dream come true. - <3

(Sorry this lyric analysis was so short... I think this song mostly speaks for itself. I hope you agree!)
