You Make My Dreams
Tim Halperin Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

What I want, you′ve got
And it might be hard to handle
Like a flame burns the candle
The candle feeds the flame
What I've got′s full stock of thoughts and dreams that scatter
You pull them all together
And I can't explain
Well you
You make my dreams come true

On a night when bad dreams become a screamer
When they're messin′ with a 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
Well you
You make my dreams come true
Well well you
You make my dreams come true

I'm down on the daydream
This sleepwalk should be over by now, by now
Cuz I′ve been waiting
I'm waiting for you, for you

What I want, you′ve got
And it might be hard to handle
Like a flame burns the candle
The candle feeds the flame
Well you
You make my dreams come true




Well, well you
You make my dreams come true

The chorus repeats how this love interest makes the singer's dreams come true. The closing verse repeats the opening verse, reiterating that what the singer wants, this person has and it may not be easy to deal with. However, the love between them feeds the flame of the singer's dreams and aspirations, and they will never be the same without this person.


The song is a tribute to the power of love and how it can fuel someone's deepest desires and dreams. It is a joyful homage to the joy and completeness of being in love, and how that love can transform someone's life.
