"Dreamer" as written by and Jeffrey Cook....
The clothes on the floor
Don't know the mess in this world surrounds you
Where everything is broken.
But if you could just find a way to believe,
Would you believe?

Cause everything is falling,
Everything is falling,
When you gonna pick up these things around you?
And you don't even notice
You haven't gone unnoticed.
Could you believe?
Would you believe?

Whenever you're lost you'll find me
Cause everyone needs somebody
Baby, I know you're afraid I'm a leaver
But I'm in the fight here,
Stay, I'm a dreamer
If ever your heart is blinded
Whatever was lost, you'll find it
Baby, I know you're afraid I'm a leaver
But I'm in the fight here,
Stay, I'm a dreamer

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
[Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah]

I can see light shine through
As time heals the wounds around you
When everything was broken.
But somehow you just found a way to believe,
A way to believe

Sometimes you gotta fall down,
Babe, you gotta fall down,
Before you can get up and walk around it
And then you're gonna notice
What you never noticed
'Til you believe.
Do you believe?

Whenever you're lost you'll find me
Cause everyone needs somebody
Baby, I know you're afraid I'm a leaver
But I'm in the fight here,
Stay, I'm a dreamer
If ever your heart is blinded
Whatever was lost, you'll find it
Baby, I know you're afraid I'm a leaver
But I'm in the fight here,
Stay, I'm a dreamer

I stand in the middle of it
Just looking at you
Yeah, yeah
I stand in the middle of it all
Just looking at you
Here's looking at you, kid.

Whenever you're lost you'll find me
Cause everyone needs somebody
Baby, I know you're afraid I'm a leaver
But I'm in the fight here,
Stay, I'm a dreamer
If ever your heart is blinded
Whatever was lost, you'll find it
Baby, I know you're afraid I'm a leaver
But I'm in the fight here,
Stay, I'm a dreamer

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Baby, I know you're afraid I'm a leaver
But I'm in the fight here,
Stay, I'm a dreamer

I stand in the middle of it all
Just looking at you
Here's looking at you, kid.

    General CommentLyric correction from the CD booklet:

    "Baby I know you're afraid I'm a leaver
    But I'm in the fight, here to stay,
    I'm a dreamer"

    The meaning is pretty straightforward. This guy likes a girl who was left by someone she really cared about. She's afraid the new guy is going to do the same thing. He's telling her that he's here to stay, ready to fight, and that he's willing to dream about a future.

    And of course, a Casablanca reference. If you've ever seen Casablanca, that line will make more sense to you.
