"Never Had A Dream Come True" as written by Simon Peter Ellis and Cathy Dennis....
Everybody's got something
They had to leave behind
One regret from yesterday
That just seems to grow with time
There's no use looking back, or wondering
How it could be now or might've been
All this I know
But still I can't find ways to let you go

I never had a dream come true
'Til the day that I found you
Even though I pretend that I've moved on
You'll always be my baby
I never found the words to say
You're the one I think about each day
And I know no matter where life takes me to
A part of me will always be with you

Somewhere in my memory
I've lost all sense of time
And tomorrow can never be
'Cause yesterday is all that fills my mind
There's no use looking back,oh wondering
How it should been, now oh might've been
All this I know
But, still I can't find ways to let you go

I never had a dream come true
'Til the day that I found you
Even though I pretend that I've moved on
You'll always be my baby
I never found the words to say
You're the one I think about each day
And I know no matter where life takes me to
A part of me will always be with you

You'll always be the dream that fills my head
Yes you will
Say you will
You know you will oh baby
You'll always be the one I know I'll never forget
There's no use looking back,oh wondering
Because love is a strange and funny thing
No matter how hard I try and try
I just can't say good bye
No no no no

I never had a dream come true
'Til the day that I found you
Even though I pretend that I've moved on
You'll always be my baby
I never found the words to say
You're the one I think about each day
And I know no matter where life takes me to
A part of me will always be with you

    General CommentThis song. Probaly reminds a lot of people of their exes, and I'm no different. Haha, it reminds me of my ex who'm I'm still very much in love with, though it's been about 10 months since I found out of his cheating. So yeah. It's a girl that tries her hardest to let go of the boy she loves, and when she can't, she's telling him all the things she never had the courage to say when they were together.

    General Commentyou cant just get over someone like that if you really cared that much about them.
    so i wouldnt say theres any confusion.
    and not pointless either, its about feeling really strongly about someone and wishing youd told them and still wanting to be with them.

    its so sweet. :]

    General CommentI think it's using "a part of me" as a metaphor to say that she'll never forget the guy (if that's how you choose to interpret it) because of all the experiences they've had together. Like basically, she chooses to keep the experience in her mind so that she can learn from it instead of just vapidly letting it go.
    Then again,
    it doesn't have to be about an ex-boyfriend at all.
    It could be about
    a crush,
    a particularly life-changing experience,
    a friend who moved away or that you've lost touch with,
    a deceased person, (a la Phantom of the Opera)
    Hmm, for me it's ironically about a particular song. It's been years and some of my friends say I should stop obsessing about it but I just can't help singing it and bringing up memories associated with it.

    One complaint I'd say about this song, though, is that the chorus sounds very similar to Elliot Yamin's "Wait for You". I'm not sure who came first, though.

    General CommentThe Great Gatsby. YEAH, OKAY, obsessive love is hardly an obscure theme and the song is by S Club effing 7 but even if it's not at all intentional, that is the meaning this song holds for me. And I like it!

    General Commentand i highly recommend that whatever you like, listen to tool they are pure talent with deep thought, undeniable musical ability and they are one of the best live bands ever and even after 10 years they still havent sold out and extreme time and care is put into every bit of everything they do. Also on somewhere called songmeanings.net they actually fit in because it can actually create a discussion to what their songs mean and what they are about

    goodnight

    General CommentI think jo is rather annoying (nothing personal).
    Why are there 7 of them if only jo sings???
    the song is self-explanatory (I think).
