Out Of My League
Fitz and the Tantrums Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

More than just a dream
More than just a dream

Forty days and forty nights
I waited for a girl like you to come and save my life
All the days I waited or you
You know the ones who said I'd never find someone like you

You were out of my league
All the things I believe
You were just the right kind
Yeah, you are more than just a dream
You were out of my league
Got my heartbeat racing
If I die don't wake me
'Cause you are more than just a dream

From time to time I pinch myself
Because I think my girl mistakes me for somebody else
And every time she takes my hand
All the wonders that remain become a simple fact

'Cause you were out of my league
All the things I believe
You were just the right kind
Yeah, you are more than just a dream
You were out of my league
Got my heartbeat racing
If I die don't wake me
'Cause you are more than just a dream

'Cause you were out of my league
All the things I believe
You were just the right kind
Yeah, you are more than just a dream
You were out of my league
Got my heartbeat racing
If I die don't wake me
'Cause you are more than just a dream

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
More than just a dream
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
More than just a dream
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
More than just a dream
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
More than just a dream

Nothing was better than getting to see this song live and have Fitz point at me with the mic to shout out "more than just a dream!"

Hands down in my top 3 concert experiences 💗

The most beautiful lyric video i ever seen for a beautiful song

@averyeml

I mean this is in my top 10 Fitz songs (which are pretty much also my top 10 songs period) so I’m glad this randomly popped up out of nowhere. I do miss the older albums when things were still a little on the jazzy/old mic vibes like this one but I love the new stuff with my whole heart too

@juan-D

If I could tattoo myself a song, this would be it
