"Dreaming My Dreams" as written by and Dolores Mary O'riordan....
All the things you said to me today
Changed my perspective in every way
Then things come to mean
To much to me
Into my faith you
And your baby
It's out there
If you want me
I'll be here
It's out there
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you
And there's no other place
That I'd lay down my face
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you
It's out there
If you want me, I'll be here
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you
And there's no other place that I'd lay down my face
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you

    General Commentthis song means that she is so in love with this person that she wants to be there for this person at all times and she wants to lay with him and sleep and dream with him.

    General CommentIn this song it sounds like the guy is getting ready to leave her. She's trying a little to act like she's strong by saying you can go and leave me, but i'm probably still going to be in the same place loving you. She's dreaming about them and in her mind what she wanted the realationship to be. It's comes off as a love song, but i think this song is a little sad. The whole cd is basically about breaking up and feeling empty.

    General Commentdolores wrote this song at christmas time for her husband don, so it's pretty safe to say that it's about how much she loves him, and how all the dreams she might have had about her future husband have come true, and now she is living them out with him. it's her way of saying that she's happy with him. however, it can be perceived as a sad song, more because of the melody than of the lyrics because the melody is quite melancholic. but the lyrics can be interpreted as sad as well (even though i know they're not, i still do - due to the memories the song holds for me) if you think about it, the lines "it's out there, if you want me, i'll be there" could be someone saying that even though this other person doesn't want them right now, they'll still be there if they ever change their mind. also "i'll be dreaming my dreams with you" seems to imply that that's all they'll be doing with them - they won't be living with eachother, the only way they can be together is in this person's dreams. because of this you could easily think, or feel that the song is about losing someone, but not feeling bad feelings for them, more wishing them on their way or letting them know that you accept it and that you'll always be there. that's certainly what i think, and i think it's a beautiful song. a beautiful album really.

    General Commenti agree with ya enero. No need to argue is definitely one of the best albums I've ever heard. In fact...if it weren't for McLachlan's fumbling towards ecstacy, this one could be No 1. This song in particular is so beautiful.

    General Commenti think this song is about someone leaving you, and how you'll remember them in your dreams

    General CommentOne of the greatest waltzes ever written. Its is the surrender that comes through in the melancholy music... the floating, detached way in which one gives themselves completely to the other.

    General Comment she's basically saying that their love is "out there" and that she'll always be there for him. it's clearly a love song... and one of the best ones ever! <3

    General CommentI'm not religious at all, but the line "Into my faith, you and your baby" makes me think of Mary and Jesus. I wonder if it's not a love song but a song to Mary, saying that she believes that God is "out there".
