You Make My Dreams
MêLée Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

What I want, you've got
And it might be hard to handle
But like the flame that burns the candle
The candle feeds the flame

What I've got's full stock of thoughts
And dreams that scatter
And you pull them all together
And how, I can't explain

But you, you make my dreams come true
Oh you, you make my dreams come true

On a night when bad
Dreams become a screamer
When they're messin' with the dreamer
I can laugh it in the face

Twist and shout my way out
And wrap yourself around me
'Cause I ain't the way you found me
And I'll never be the same

But you, you make my dreams come true
Oh you, you make my dreams come true

I'm down on the daydream
That sleepwalk should be over by now
I know that you
You make my dreams come true

Oh you, you make my dreams come true
But you, you make my dreams come true




Oh you, you make my dreams come true
But you, you make my dreams come true

Overall Meaning

The song "You Make My Dreams" by Mêlée is a love song with a bouncy, almost jolly beat that expresses the joy and excitement of being in love. The lyrics of the song talk about how the person the singer is in love with makes all their dreams come true. The chorus repeats this sentiment multiple times, giving it added emphasis. The singer notes that the person may be hard to handle, but just like the flame that burns the candle, the candle feeds the flame. This simile compares the way the person they love challenges them to the way a flame challenges a candle, but the two are also inextricably linked and dependent on each other, just as they are with their lover.


The chorus emphasizes their love by admitting that they make the singer's dreams come true. This is demonstrated in the second verse, where the person the singer loves helps them out when bad dreams become a screamer, protecting them from harm. They make the singer feel safe by "wrapping themselves around them." Furthermore, the person they are in love with changed them for the better, as demonstrated in the line, "I ain't the way you found me, and I'll never be the same." The song ends with another repetition of the chorus, emphasizing the way the person they love helps fulfill their dreams.


Line by Line Meaning

What I want, you've got
I desire what you possess


And it might be hard to handle
It can be difficult to manage


But like the flame that burns the candle
Similar to how a flame causes a candle to burn


The candle feeds the flame
The candle also provides food for the flame


What I've got's full stock of thoughts
My mind is filled with endless ideas


And dreams that scatter
Yet my dreams are scattered


And you pull them all together
You help bring my thoughts and dreams together


And how, I can't explain
The extent of your help is indescribable


But you, you make my dreams come true
You are the reason my aspirations turn into reality


On a night when bad
During a dreadful evening


Dreams become a screamer
When nightmares become terrifying


When they're messin' with the dreamer
When they toy with the dreamer's mind


I can laugh it in the face
I can confront my fears with laughter


Twist and shout my way out
I can dance and sing my fears away


And wrap yourself around me
You can embrace me


'Cause I ain't the way you found me
I have changed since you met me


And I'll never be the same
I am forever altered for the better


But you, you make my dreams come true
You are the reason for my success and happiness


I'm down on the daydream
I'm lost in my desires


That sleepwalk should be over by now
I wish to wake up from this trance


I know that you
I am aware that you


You make my dreams come true
You are the catalyst for my dreams becoming reality


Oh you, you make my dreams come true
You are the reason for my happiness


But you, you make my dreams come true
Without you, my dreams would be unattainable


Oh you, you make my dreams come true
You are an indispensable part of my success
