"Dreaming Of You" as written by and James Skelly....
It's up in my heart when it skips a beat (skips a beat)
Can't feel no pavement right under my feet (under my feet)

Up in my lonely room
When I'm dreaming of you (wah oooo)
Oh what can I do
I still need you, but
I don't want you now

When I'm down and my hands are tied (hands are tied)
I cannot reach a pen for me to draw the line (draw the line)
From this pain I just can't disguise
Its gonna hurt but I'll have to say goodbye

Up in my lonely room
When I'm dreaming of you (wah oooo)
Oh what can I do
I still need you, but
I don't want you now

Oh yeah

Ohhh Ohhhhh

Up in my lonely room
When I'm dreaming of you (wah oooo)
Oh what can I do
I still need you, but
I don't want you now

    General CommentI'm fairly sure It's about heroin.

    And It wasn't written by Pete Doherty.

    General CommentIndeed, it could very well be about love, or it could just as easily be about heroin.

    What makes your heart skip a beat? Heroin and Love.
    What makes you feel as if flying? Heroin and Love.

    Unlike booze, heroin is usually taken in a room alone. Hence the lonely room reminding him of heroin, and the 2nd verse clearly shows a person suffering from withdrawal.

    All up to you to decide.

    General CommentWell this has always been one of my favourite songs but I'd say it is pretty certainly about heroin and not about a girl, although I think it has been deliberately written to be ambigious enough to sound to the casual listener like it might be about love of a person.
