I've been trying to keep my mouth shut baby
I've been trying to change my dark ways maybe
I've been dreaming of a time
When I always do you fine
A girl can dream

I've been working on my cold heart honey
I've been working for my own green money
I've been working for a smile
I've been missing for a while
A girl can dream

Oh I have sinned
I've been around
I have cried
The prettiest sounds
When your heart breaks
My heart aches
I will pay for my mistakes
No more will I make
A girl can dream

I've been doing lots of window shoppin'
No more spoiling myself rotten
I've been cleaning up my act
No more fiction
It's a fact
A girl can dream

Oh I have sinned
I've been around
I have cried
The prettiest sounds
When your heart breaks
My heart aches
I will pay for my mistakes
No more will I make
A girl can dream

    My InterpretationThe verses are all about an ambitious goal: treating her partner better, but the "a girl can dream" refrain is really interesting to me. It might mean she knows she's not likely to succeed at cleaning up her act. It might mean HE doesn't have faith that she will. And it might mean dreaming is all she can do about her old "dark" ways, which she misses.
