"Just a Dream" as written by James Scheffer, Richard Preston Butler, Damon Jared Reinagle, David Ryan Harris, Frank Romano and Cornell Haynes....
[Chorus]
I was thinking bout her, thinkin' bout me
Thinkin' bout us, what we gon' be
Open my eyes yeah, it was only Just A Dream
So I traveled back, down that road
Will she come back, no one knows
I realize yeah, it was only Just A Dream

I was at the top and now its like I'm in the basement
Number one spot and now she find her a replacement
I swear now I can't take it, knowing somebody's got my baby
And now you ain't around baby I can't think
I should've put it down, should've got the ring
Cause I can still feel it in the air
See her pretty face run my fingers through her hair
My lover, my life, my shawty, my wife
She left me, I'm tied
Cause I knew that it just ain't right

[Chorus]

When I be ridin' man I swear I see her face at every turn
Tryna get my Usher on but I can't let it Burn
And I just hopes she know that she the only one I yearn for
More and more I miss her, when will I learn
Didn't give her all my love, I guess now I got my payback
Now I'm in the club thinking all about my baby
Hey, she was so easy to love
But wait, I guess that love wasn't enough
I'm going through it every time that I'm alone
And now I'm missing, wishing she'd pick up the phone
But she made the decision that she wanted to move on
Cause I was wrong

[Chorus]

If you ever loved somebody put your hands up
If you ever loved somebody put your hands up
And now they're gone and you're wishing you could give them everything
Said if you ever loved somebody put your hands up
If you ever loved somebody put your hands up
Now they're gone and you're wishing you could give them everything

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentGood song and pretty obvious what it's about. He loved a woman so much but he just didn't want to marry her so she got tired of waiting and moved on and now it's killing him to know that she won't ever be his again.

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who didn't appreciate and fully love his girlfriend the way he should have. Now that shes gone he thinks he seems her image everywhere and he wishes that he had her back in his life for good. Its too late though and all he can do is reminisce and dream about her and a relationship that he knows he can't have with her anymore.

    MemoryThis song reminds me of myself. My girlfriend broke up with me and now she wants me back. I keep turning her down for what she did to me, but I can't seem to get her out of my head. I'm strongly considering being with her again.

    General Comment"Trying to get my Usher on but I can't let it burn" is a reference to Usher's song Burn, which is about basically just dealing with the fact that your significant other is gone, AKA letting it burn.

    Lyric CorrectionThanks for posting the lyrics first of all. I'm not 100% but I think he's saying WILL SHE COME BACK and not WISH YOU COME BACK. Here's the chorus as I heard it:

    I was thinkin about her
    Thinkin about me
    Thinkin about us
    (And) Where we gunna be
    Open my eyes
    (And) it was only just a dream

    So I traveled back, down that road
    Will she come back
    No one knows
    And I realize, it was only just a dream

    General CommentYea I agree with Cas27. It's "will she come back".

    And also it's "my lover" not my love.

    "My lover. My life. My shorty. My wife.
    She left me, I'm tied.
    Cause I knew that it just ain't right."

    And now you ain't around, baby I can't think.
    I shoulda put it down. Shoulda got that ring.
    Cuz I can still feel it in the air.
    See her pretty face run my fingers through her hair.

    She left me, I'm tied.
    Cuz I knew that it just ain't right.

    And I just hope she notice she the only one I yearn for.
    More and more I miss her when will I learn?

    Didn't give her all my love, I guess now I got my payback.
    Now I'm in the club thinkin all about my baby.
    Hey, she was so easy to love.
    But wait, I guess that love wasn't enough.

    I'm goin through it every time that I'm alone.
