Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

What I want, you've got
But it might be hard to handle
Like a flame that burns the candle
The candle feeds the flame, ooh, yeah, yeah
What I got - full stock of
Thoughts and dreams that scatter
And you pull them all together
And how? I can't explain, oh, yeah

Oh, well you (Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
You make my dreams come true
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh) yeah
Well well well you (Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
Oh yeah you make my dreams come true
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh) yeah

On a night when bad dreams become a screamer
When they're messing with a dreamer
I can laugh it in the face (Ooh ooh ooh)
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, oh, yeah

Well, well you (Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
You make my dreams come true
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh) oh yeah
Well well well you (Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
You make my dreams come true
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh) oh yeah

Well listen to this wah, wah
Wah, wah wadah

I'm down on my daydream
All that sleepwalk should be over by now

Well you, hell yeah
You make my dreams come true
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I've been waiting for waiting for you girl
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)




Oh yeah, you make my dreams come true
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)

This was such a fun cover. Kevin and Matt killed that beat and bass, Scott rocked it with a soulful lead and Mitch and Kirstie’s background vocals were on point.

@LisaMT1218

Everything is better when PTX sings it.
