"Dream Attack" as written by and Peter/gilbert Hook....
Nothing in this world
Can touch the music that I heard
When I woke up this morning
It put the sun into my life
It cut my heartbeat with a knife
It was like no other morning

I don't belong to no one
But I want to be with you
I can't be owned by no one
What am I supposed to do

I can't see the sense in your leaving
All I need is your love to believe in

Don't look into the sun
It's not for me or anyone
To steal the light out of the sky
Is it really such a sin
Cause if it is then I'll give in
I can't live without your love

I don't belong to no one
But I want to be with you
I can't be owned by no one
What am I supposed to do

I can't see the sense in your leaving
All I need is your love to believe in
And for you I would do what I can
But I can't change the way that I am

    General CommentI think it is more than someone not wanting another to leave. I think it is about being in love but not wishing to feel trapped (the lyric "don't want to be owned..") and the dilemma of liking and wanting to be in love (and needing the security and comfort of love) but also needing the freedom and independence and not tied. (In some ways similar to the U2 song: With or Without You).

    General CommentI think it's about a woman leaving him because he can't, or won't, commit to her. She needs more from the relationship than he will give and he's trying to find excuses why he can't give.

    Similar in some ways to "2 out of 3" by Meatloaf ...

    General CommentPretty obvious what the song's about - not wanting someone you love to leave, and trying to convince them to stay. But it's a really amazing song.

    General CommentI agree with the other posts. It's about human nature fighting itself. People put restrictions and try to trap people they love. He can't be tied down either even though he loves her.
