Overview

The working title for "Dreamin'" was "Daydreamer", as Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo mentioned in the liner notes to Alone. It was the fourth song from the album to be released on iTunes prior to the album release. "Everybody Get Dangerous" faded into this track originally, but this feature was not present on the final album.

Lyrics

I'm dreamin' in the mornin'
I'm dreamin' all through the night
And when I'm dreamin' I know that it's all right
I'm dreamin' in the evening
Dreamin' all through the day
And when I'm dreamin' I know that it's okay

Daddy says I gotta pay some bills
So I can learn to be responsible
Someday I'll have a family of my own
And they will need for me to be full grown

Teacher says I gotta learn some facts
So I can make it in the Widener stacks
These are the days that will define my life
I shouldn't waste 'em on these friends of mine

But oh, I gotta' be a big boy
Whoa, I gotta' pick up my toys
When I start to feel the feeling comin' over me
I soon forget all about responsibility
I walk around in a wide-awake daydream
Things are better out here than they might seem

There are blue birds in the meadow
And the bees are flying around
And the goslings at the river
At a loss so far from the ground

I am running through the meadow
And the sun is shining on me
I am singing, my voice is ringing
I can sing so loud

And the angels in the heavens
They are wondering
Why am I so glad?

I am running through the meadow
And the sun is shining on me
I am singing, my voice is ringing
I can sing so loud

I don't wanna get with your program

Take back the love
