Annotationen

Scheinbar introspektiver Song über einen Traum (bzw. einen Albtraum), der möglicherweise mit negativen Aspekten aus der Realität aus dem Leben eines Popstars zu tun hat.
Die Harmoniefolge des Verses wird nicht aufgelöst. Die Kickdrum sorgt für Spannung. Der Raum der Produktion wird je nach Text angepasst («my head was underwater»). Der Song wirkt sehr durchkomponiert in seiner Zwei- oder Mehrdeutigkeit. Die Reime zwischen den Strophen («I had a dream» – «I tried to scream») unterstützen diesen Eindruck.

Lyrics

[Verse 1] I had a dream I got everything I wanted Not what you'd think And if I'm bein' honest It might've been a nightmare To anyone who might care Thought I could fly (Fly) So I stepped off the Golden, mm Nobody cried (Cried, cried, cried, cried) Nobody even noticed I saw them standing right there Kinda thought they might care (Might care, might care) [Pre-Chorus] I had a dream I got everything I wanted But when I wake up, I see You with me [Chorus] And you say, "As long as I'm here, no one can hurt you Don't wanna lie here, but you can learn to If I could change the way that you see yourself You wouldn't wonder why here, they don't deserve you" [Verse 2] I tried to scream But my head was underwater They called me weak Like I'm not just somebody's daughter Coulda been a nightmare But it felt like they were right there And it feels like yesterday was a year ago But I don't wanna let anybody know 'Cause everybody wants something from me now And I don't wanna let 'em down [Pre-Chorus] I had a dream I got everything I wanted But when I wake up, I see You with me [Chorus] And you say, "As long as I'm here, no one can hurt you Don't wanna lie here, but you can learn to If I could change the way that you see yourself You wouldn't wonder why here, they don't deserve you" [Outro] If I knew it all then, would I do it again? Would I do it again? If they knew what they said would go straight to my head What would they say instead? If I knew it all then, would I do it again? Would I do it again? If they knew what they said would go straight to my head What would they say instead?
