"Little Dreamer" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
They may talk about your cold when you were
Headed for the skies
But you were young and bold, and baby
Didn't that change with a wink of your eye
Now no one's talkin' 'bout those crazy days gone by
No one talks about the times you cried

A little dreamer
A little dreamer

And then they went and they voted you
Least likely to succeed
I had to tell them baby you were armed with
All you'd need
Seems no one's talking 'bout those crazy days gone past
Weren't they amazed when you were really last?

You are the little dreamer
You were the little dreamer, yeah yeah

Yeah, they talk about your cold when you were
Headed for the skies
But you were young and bold, and baby
Didn't that change with a wink of your eye
Seems no one's talkin' 'bout the crazy days gone past
Weren't they amazed when you were really last?

You are the little dreamer
A little dreamer, yeah, oh oh
Yeah, a little dreamer
Little dreamer

    General Commentthis song sums up peoples consistancy with having no faith in each other...everyone is goin somewhere, how full u live your life getting there, being there, and leaving there, that's all that matters.

    General CommentThis song has passed the test of time better than most. If someone is playing Van Halen at a party, and this song comes on, everyone wants it cranked.

    My InterpretationThis is the most special Van Halen song to me. This song will always be in my heart, and I'm gonna get tattooed "Little Dreamer"

    This song means A LOT to me because it reminds me of my dreams, that I'm headed for the skies, I'm young and bold, what I want to achieve, and it is something that I kinda forget very often. I really feel I am a little dreamer, and I don't care if they really didn't take much time writing it back in the 70's. It really means a lot to me this song. I must believe in myself whether other do or not. It is just something I cannot explain with words.
