Dreaming Of...
Kwan Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Fluttering like butterflies
feel the shiver down my spine
every time I look up in your eyes
gentle like the summer rain
smooth the breeze, caress our names
forevermore carved by wood the remain

I tremble as I look at you
my heart keeps pounding
my love is true
I can't explain this fire, burns inside
but light it takes your life away
in darkness I could never stay
farewell my darling, parts our way





Dreaming of life so tender
love beyond this world

Overall Meaning

The first verse of Kwan's "Dreaming of..." describes a powerful feeling of being in love. The metaphor of butterflies fluttering in the stomach is commonly used to describe the sensation of falling for someone. Additionally, the shiver down the singer's spine suggests a physical reaction to this feeling. The second line continues to describe the intensity of the sensation, with the singer feeling it every time they look into their love's eyes. The love is compared to the gentle summer rain, which is a calming and peaceful image. The breeze is also a peaceful, calming image, and the fact that it caresses their names suggests that their love is something special and sacred, worthy of reverence. The final line of the verse "forevermore carved by wood the remain" suggests that their love will continue to endure, just as wood is a long-lasting material.


The second verse describes the singer's trembling and pounding heart, which are also physical reactions to being in love. The singer admits that they can't explain the intensity of this feeling, but they know that their love is true. The line "but light it takes your life away" is a bit confusing, but could be interpreted as meaning that the love is so intense that it consumes the lover, taking their old life away and replacing it with this new love. The darkness mentioned in the next line might refer to the unknown and uncertain future, without the comfort of their love. The final line, "farewell my darling, parts our way," suggests a sad ending, perhaps a breakup or the death of the lover. However, this line also adds to the romantic and dramatic themes of the song.
