Lyrics for Dreams by The Cranberries:

Intro
Oh, my life
Is changing every day
In every possible way

And oh, my dreams
It's never quite as it seems
Never quite as it seems

Verse 1
I know I've felt like this before
But now I'm feeling it even more
Because it came from you

Then I open up and see
The person falling here is me
A different way to be

Bridge
Ah
La ya
La la ya
La-ah-ah

Chorus
I want more
Impossible to ignore
Impossible to ignore

They'll come true
Impossible not to do
Impossible not to do

Verse 2
And now I tell you openly
You have my heart so don't hurt me
You're what I couldn't find

A totally amazing mind
So understanding and so kind
You're everything to me

Chorus
Oh, my life
Is changing everyday
In every possible way

And oh, my dreams
It's never quite as it seems
'Cause you're a dream to me, dream to me

Outro
Ah, la-a-la-ah, la la la
La-a-la-ah, la-ah ah ah
Ah, la-a-la-ah, la la la
La-a-la-ah, la-ah ah ah

Song Facts

“Dreams” was the first single released by The Cranberries after being signed to Island Records. It initially only charted in Australia in 1992. However, the band’s video for “Linger” was picked up by MTV in 1994 while they toured with London Suede and that song reached the top 40 in five countries. So, “Dreams” was then reissued and found similar success.

The song was written about “feeling really in love for the first time”.
