But man we grow old
Man we grow old

“Wake me up” by Aloe Blacc (My favorite song about dreams and Hope)

People are confronting the artist that the darkness he is feeling is nothing but just a dream. He isn’t that matured to understand the situation. But, Aloe Blacc knows that it’s a truth and wishes to sleep. He wants to wake up again when the bad things happening in the world will get over. When he was young, he thought everything in the world is going fine, but as he grew older, he got the wisdom of knowing that he is lost. (This is one of the best song about dreams and hope).

But I only have two hands

I woke up on a bench on Shepherd’s Bush Green,
A candle at my chest, and a head on his knee.
I got up it was dark there is no one in the park at this hour.
How do I keep finding myself here?
‘Oh fight me.’

“All I Have to Do Is Dream” a song by The Everly Brothers about hope

Love is the most beautiful feeling in the world. But here, Narrator got separated from the love of his life that made him sad and broke. Here comes the power of DREAM. The song about dreams and hope became the bridge in the gap between him and his love. He always dreamt of her that gave them comfort and a good feeling that she is still with him. The only trouble comes when the artist realizes that it’s just a dream and not a reality. And the dreams have to end someday.

And I need you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is

In the eyes of a teenage crystallized
Oh, the prettiest of lights
That hang the hallways of the home
And the cries from the strangers out at night
They don’t keep us up at night
We have the curtains drawn and closed

Mckee Benjamin Arthur / Grant Alexander Junior

Meaning of “Dream” by Imagine Dragons – There are many things outside that are disturbing and don’t let us sleep at home quietly. The fake cries, The light that is placed outside our window, it’s all just to wake us up from the dream and become a part of the same world. But hold on, We are not that weak. We have curtains to block the lights coming from the hallways. And a mission to remain under the roof and just dream about the world we want.

“Just a Dream” by Nelly

But now he realizes that he can’t fix anything as it’s not a dream but reality. Now it’s the dreaming song that gives it an even more beautiful feel.

If you ever loved somebody put your hands up
If you ever loved somebody put your hands up
And now they’re gone and you’re wishing
You could give them everything (Everything)

Cornell Haynes / James Scheffer / Frank Romano / Richard Butler / Damon Reinagle / David Harris / Jim Jonsin

Meaning of “Just a Dream” by Nelly – Nelly wants to ask us if we ever loved someone and want to live the whole life with her, we need to fix everything that’s broken at that moment itself. Don’t allow the delicate thread of love between people to break. If it breaks once, it cannot be amended, even if you mend it, there will be a knot in it that you will feel every time coming closer to each other. Which means there will always be some awkwardness in the relationship. But if it’s broken, you will keep on wishing for the changes you could have done earlier.

Oh, I think I’ve landed
Where there are miracles at work
Now you’ve got me open-handed
And you got me lost for words
I sing, oh

Berryman Guy Rupert / Buckland Jonathan Mark

Meaning of “A Head Full of Dreams” by Coldplay – We found the narrator at a place of dream where he is like an open book. There’s not a thing that is hidden.

If we’ll ask the narrator about this world, he can’t utter a single word because he has lost the words to explain the feelings. He is singing songs and enjoying the world.

Trampoline” by SHAEd

The next on the list of Song about Dreams comes to the beautiful song ‘Trampoline’ by ‘Shaed’Artist is in a dream where she is jumping on the Trampoline in the past as a child. This song teaches us about embracing things when we have the chance. Nobody knows what the future brings to us.

Wait if I’m on fire
How am I so deep in love?
When I dream of dying
I never feel so loved

Alex C. Mendoza / Chelsea W. Lee / Maxwell Joseph Ernst / Spencer Thomas Ernst

Meaning of Trampoline by SHAEd – Shaed wants to know if she is on fire, which means if she is forced by the world in a harsh way, why there is love inside her. If someone is on a way to end their life, no one feels to be loved. So why is that happening to her?

Don’t fall in love with a dreamer
‘Cause he’ll always take you in
Just when you think you’ve really changed him
He’ll leave you again
Don’t fall in love with a dreamer
‘Cause he’ll break you every time

Carnes Kim / Ellingson David M
