I had a dream, it was a good dream
you were there and so was I
we were so happy
I did not want to open up my eyes
and we were driving down a road
it was a long one
there were signs all over saying
the signs said "welcome to your life"
I looked over and you were smiling
you had a great big smile going
you turned to me, you turned and you said
"all your life, all your life, I got your back"

so if you want to try
we'll make it you and I
we'll never be alone
we'll buy a dog and bring him home
he'll jump up on the bed
we'll be the best of friends
I think that we should try
I picture you and I...

I had another dream
I know you think, "how convenient"
but I swear it's the truth
we were there, yeah, I was me and you were you,
we had a good long life on this planet
when we died we went to heaven,
saw that god was really Elvis!
anyway, our souls were in the right place
our souls were in the right place..

so if you want to try
we'll make it you and I
we'll never be alone
we'll buy a dog and bring him home
he'll jump up on the bed
we'll be the best of friends
I think that we should try
I think that we should try

and we'll take him on walks with us everyday
(underneath the summer sun)
he can ride in the back of our car when we go away
with his head outside of the window frame
and his tongue out

(chorus)

it's a miracle that we're even here and alive
let's buy a dog and bring him home.

    General CommentI guess it's about a couple who bought a dog for an anniversary present or something? idk. I came here to find out. But I think it's stupid how Selena Gomez is getting sued bcuz the chorus is similar to A Year Without Rain.

    General CommentThis song is mediocre at best, and I'm so OUTRAGED that they decided to sue Selena over this. The chorus sounds just a TINY bit like A Year Without Rain, certainly no striking similarities. COMPLETE NONSENSE is what that bs lawsuit is. A Year Without Rain is wonderful, and this song is crap!
