Sweet Dreams
Beyoncé Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

This next song
Is actually an uptempo song off my new record "I Am"
I love the lyrics so much
I actually wanted to do an acoustic version for you guys
It talks about relationships being so wonderful
Almost too good to be true
You don't know if this is a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare
Every night I rush to my bed
With hopes that maybe I'll get a chance to see you
When I close my eyes, I'm going out of my head
Lost in a fairytale, can you hold my hands and be my guide?

Clouds filled with stars cover the skies
And I hope it rains
You're the perfect lullaby

You can be a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare
Either way I don't wanna wake up from you (you can be a sweet dream)
Or a beautiful nightmare
Somebody, pinch me, your love's too good to be true
My guilty pleasure, I ain't going nowhere
Baby, 'long as you're here, I'll be floating on air 'cause you're my
You can be a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare
Either way I don't wanna wake up from you

Wanna wake up from you, you

Tattoo your name across my heart
Tattoo your name across my heart
Not even death can make us part
Not even death can make us part
Tattoo your name across my heart
Tattoo your name across my heart (oh)
Not even death can make us part
What kind of dream is this?

I love you
I love you, I love you

Baby, I love you, you are my life
My happiest moments weren't complete if you weren't by my side (you weren't by my side)
You're my relation in connection to the sun (connection to the sun)
With you next to me there's no darkness I can't overcome (I can't overcome)
You are my raindrops, I am the seed (I am the seed)
With you and God who's the sunlight I bloom and grow so beautifully (grow so beautifully)
Baby, I'm so proud, proud to be your girl (proud to be your girl)
You make the confusion go all away from this cold and mixed-up world

I am in love with you (I'm in love)
You set me free
I can't do this thing called life without you here with me
'Cause I'm dangerously in love with you (dangerously in love)
I'll never leave
Just, just keep lovin' me the way I love you lovin' me, yeah

Every time I see your face my heart smiles
Every time it feels so good it hurts sometimes
Created in this world to love, to hold
To feel, to breathe, to live you

Dangerously in love, yeah (I'm in love)

I can't do this thing
Called life without you here with me (can't do this thing without here with me)
'Cause I'm dangerously in love (holdin' me)
In love (kissin' me, lovin' me)
Keep lovin' me the way I love you lovin' me
Dangerously

Dangerously
I love you
I love you
I love
I love you
I love you
I love
I love, love, love

With all my heart, I love you baby
Stay with me and you will see my arms will hold you, baby
Never leave, 'cause I believe in this in love

Sweet love, hear me callin' out your name
I feel no shame, I'm in love
Sweet love, don't you ever go away
It will always be this way

There's no stronger love in this world (ooh)
Oh, baby, no
You're my man, I'm your girl
I'll never go, wait and see, can't be wrong
Don't you know this is where you belong? Oh

So sweet
So sweet
So sweet oh, oh, love
(Sweet love) oh no, no, no
Oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no no, no
(Sweet love) don't nobody know
Just leave me sweetly, baby
Just leave me sweetly, baby
Hey
Don't nobody know

Ooh, ooh
Ooh I am in love with you (I'm in love)
You set me free
I can't do this thing called life without you dangerously in love





Thank you guys

Turn the lights on
Every night I rush to my bed
With hopes that maybe I'll get a chance to see you when I close my eyes
I'm going out of my head
Lost in a fairytale; can you hold my hands and be my guide
Clouds filled with stars cover your skies
And I hope it rains
You're the perfect lullaby
What kinda dream is this?
You can be a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare
Either way I don't wanna wake up from you (turn the lights on)

I mention you when I say my prayers
I wrap you around all of my thoughts
Boy, you're my temporary high
I wish that when I wake up you're there
To wrap your arms around me for real
And tell me you'll stay by my side
Clouds filled with stars cover the skies
And I hope it rains; you're the perfect lullaby
What kinda dream is this?
You can be a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare
