Once Upon a Dream
Lana Del Rey Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Interesting Facts ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, that look in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
And I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream

But if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, that gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
And I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream

Overall Meaning

Lana Del Rey's "Once Upon a Dream" is a haunting and romantic song that speaks to the timeless nature of love. The lyrics of the song describe a feeling of familiarity between two people who have met before, as well as a sense of destiny or predestination. The singer claims to "know" the person she is addressing because she has walked with him "once upon a dream." This suggests that the two individuals may have encountered each other in a dream, or perhaps in some other realm of the imagination where they have formed a deep spiritual connection.


The singer describes the "gleam" in the other person's eye as being "so familiar," which implies that she may have seen that same look before. The idea of a "familiar" connection between two people is one that is often explored in literature and romance, and it suggests a shared history or a deep-seated bond that transcends time and space. The singer also acknowledges that "visions are seldom all they seem," which suggests that she may be questioning the accuracy of her memories or her intuitions about this other person. However, despite this uncertainty, she is convinced that the other person will love her again, just as they did in their shared dream.


Overall, Lana Del Rey's "Once Upon a Dream" is a song that captures the complexities of human emotion and the mysterious nature of the connections between people. It suggests that love is a force that can transcend reality and connect us to others, even across time and space.
