About Dreams

"Dreams" is a song by English singer Gabrielle. It was written by Gabrielle and Tim Laws and produced by Richie Fermie for her debut studio album Find Your Way (1993). Originally, the song included a sample of the song "Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman, but because of copyright reasons the sample had to be removed. Released as Gabrielle's debut single, "Dreams" entered the UK Singles Chart at number two, which was the highest chart entry a debut female solo act had scored in the United Kingdom at that time. before reaching number one for three weeks in June 1993. The song also peaked at number 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States while peaking at number-one on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart. "Dreams" is widely seen as Gabrielle's signature song and its lyrics inspired as the title of her greatest hits compilation Dreams Can Come True, Greatest Hits Vol. 1 (2001). The song was later sampled by the More Fire Crew on their 2002 single "Dreams" and is featured heavily in the 1999 Paul Thomas Anderson film Magnolia, where William H. Macy's downtrodden character Donnie Smith plays the song repeatedly as a motivational aid. It is also used in the trailer for the 2000 film Purely Belter. In 2013, Gabrielle re-recorded the track with producer Naughty Boy for her compilation album Now and Always: 20 Years of Dreaming.

They can come true
They can come true

Move a step closer
You know that I want you
I can tell by your eyes
That you want me too
Just a question of time
I knew we'd be together
And that you'd be mine
I want you here forever

Do you hear what I'm saying
Gotta say how I feel
I can't believe you're here
But I know that you're real
I know what I want
And baby it's you
I can't deny my feelings
Because they are true

Dreams can come true
Look at me babe I'm with you
You know you gotta have hope
You know you've got to be strong

Dreams can come true
Look at me babe I'm with you
You know you gotta have hope
You know you've got to be strong

I've seen you sometimes
On your own and in crowds
I knew I had to have you
My hopes didn't let me down
Now you're by my side
And I feel so good
I've nothing to hide
Don't feel that I ever could

Do you hear what I'm saying
Gotta say how I feel
I can't believe you're here
But I know that you're real
I know what I want
And baby it's you
Can't deny my feelings
Because they are true

Dreams can come true
Look at me babe I'm with you
You know you gotta have hope
You know you've got to be strong

Dreams can come true
Look at me babe I'm with you
You know you gotta have hope
You know you've got to be strong

I'm not making plans for tomorrow
Let's live for tonight
I know I want you baby
So hold me so tight
Put your arms around me
You make me feel so safe
Then you whisper in my ear
That you're here to stay

Dreams can come true
Look at me babe I'm with you
You know you gotta have hope
You know you've got to be strong

Dreams can come true
Look at me babe I'm with you
You know you gotta have hope
You know you've got to be strong

Dreams can come true
Look at me babe I'm with you
You know you gotta have hope
You know you've got to be strong

Dreams can come true
Look at me babe I'm with you
You know you gotta have hope
You know you've got to be strong
