Fall Into Your Dreams
Cyndi Lauper Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Little baby, on my shoulder
I could fall into your dreams...
Wrap myself up, all around you
Till you don't know what it means.

Don't lie shrugging your shoulders now like I shouldn't stare.
Don't sigh so deep.
Are you the kind of man that I hoped you would or wouldn't be?

Maybe baby's gone to sleep...
Maybe baby's gone to sleep.

Pull myself a little closer,
I could feel your body breath
Hear the pulsing of my heartbeat
Rhyming rhythms endlessly.

If I could catch three wishes from a falling star,
One I would keep...
And two I would put on your pillow with a lullaby...
Maybe baby's gone to sleep
Maybe baby's gone...

Hold on to a thought at the end of the day...
Someday we'll be watching the clouds as they're drifting away.
And you might think about leaving but I'll always stay.

Little baby on my shoulder,
I could fall into your dreams
Wrap yourself up all around me
Till you don't know what it means...
I could fall into your dreams...




I could fall into your dreams...
Maybe baby's gone to sleep...

Overall Meaning

In Cyndi Lauper's song "Fall Into Your Dreams," the lyrics describe a moment between two people, perhaps a mother and child or a couple, where there is a deep sense of comfort and trust. The singer longs to wrap herself around the person next to her and fall into their dreams together. It's a moment of vulnerability and intimacy, where the outside world fades away and the two are lost in each other.


Throughout the song, there are several references to sleep, perhaps reflecting the idea of escape and a desire to leave the stress and worries of daily life behind. The singer suggests that she might be willing to sacrifice her own wishes for the person she is holding, indicating a deep love and selflessness.


The last verse offers a sense of hope and comfort, with the idea that even when things are difficult, there is a sense of permanence and stability in their relationship. While the outside world might be chaotic and uncertain, the two of them will always be together and find peace in each other.


Overall, the song speaks to the powerful, transformative nature of human connection and the importance of finding moments of solace and peace in the midst of chaos.

Time After Time - Lisa Wahlandt - Lyrics

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick
And think of you
Caught up in circles
Confusion is nothing new
Flashback, warm nights
Almost left behind
Suitcases of memories
Time after

Sometimes you picture me
I'm walking too far ahead
You're calling to me, I can't hear
What you've said
Then you say, go slow
I fall behind
The second hand unwinds

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting
Time after time

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I will be waiting
Time after time

After my picture fades and darkness has
Turned to gray
I’m watching through windows
And you're wondering if I'm okay
Secrets stolen from deep inside
The drum beats out of time

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting
Time after time

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting
Time after time

Musical Interlude

If you're lost you can look and you will really, really really, really really find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I know that I will be waiting

Time after time
Time after time
Hold on, hold on…..

Time after time
Time after time
Time after time
Time after time……..
