"Dreams" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
World turns black and white
Pictures in an empty room
Your love starts fallin down
Better change your tun, yeah
Reach for the golden ring
Reach for the sky
Baby just spread your wings

We'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
We'll get higher and higher
Leave it all behind

Run, run, run away
Like a train runnin off the track
Got the truth gets left behind
Falls between the cracks
Standing on broken dreams
Never losin' sight, ah
Spread your wings

We'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
We'll get higher and higher
Leave it all behind

So baby dry your eyes, save all
The tears you've cried
Oh that's what dreams are made of
'Cause we belong in a world that must be strong
Oh that's what dreams are made of

We'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
Higher and higher leave it all behind
Oh we'll higher and higher who knows
What we'll find

So baby dry your eyes, save all
The tears you've cried
Oh that's what dreams are made of
Oh baby we belong in a world that must be strong
Oh that's what dreams are made of

And in the end on dreams we will depend
'Cause that's what love is made of

    General CommentThis is a damn good song. Unlike many Van Halen songs, this one actually has some good meaning behind it. Even if its simple. Just follow your dreams... don't let anything stop you. But I must admit the video is pretty cheesy. The Blue Angels? I guess it fits with the "Higher, Higher" part. But I dunno. LoL. Whatever. Good song.

    General CommentThis song means the world to me. Not for any musical reason, just a certain time and place that I heard it with a special someone. Thanks Paula@FLW

    General CommentA woman and a man are dreaming of one another. Then in the end their dreams will all come true and they will fly high together--4-ever.

    General CommentThe live version they did at the Whiskey A Go Go in 1993 is excellent.

    General CommentThe blue angel film clip is actually a tribute to a relation that died flying for the blue angels.
