Dreams Lyrics - Van Halen

Review The Song (32)

(Words by Van Halen)

World turns black and white
Pictures in an empty room
Your love starts fallin' down
Better change your tune
Yeah, you reach for the golden ring
Reach for the sky
Baby, just spread your wings

We'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
We'll get higher and higher
Leave it all behind

Run, run, run away
Like a train runnin' off the track
Got the truth bein' left behind
Falls between the cracks
Standin' on broken dreams
Never losin' sight, ah
Well just spread your wings

We'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
We'll get higher and higher
Leave it all behind

So baby dry your eyes
Save all the tears you've cried
Oh, that's what dreams are made of
'Cause we belong in a world that must be strong
Oh, that's what dreams are made of

Yeah, we'll get higher and higher
Straight up we'll climb
Higher and higher
Leave it all behind
Oh, we'll get higher and higher
Who knows what we'll find?

So baby dry your eyes
Save all the tears you've cried
Oh, that's what dreams are made of
Oh baby, we belong in a world that must be strong
Oh, that's what dreams are made of

And in the end on dreams we will depend
'Cause that's what love is made of

Valueland lot | Reviewer: Pistol Pete | 1/14/14

This is a great song. It always brings tears to my eyes. I battled through a very difficult time when I was 20 years old and this song always brings me back 25 years and lets me remember who stood by me when I was at my rock bottom. Twenty five years later and I am now standing on top of the world. My story is a complex one. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and I was running with a bad crowd. It didn't make me a bad person though, but unfortunately I was judged as one (deservingly so) I overcame a lot and I am so proud of how far I have come. Whenever I hear this song I can't help but tear up as there is still lots of pain inside from mistakes that I made. One thing though is that I used all of this to move forward and be a better person. So baby dry your eyes, save all the tears you've cried, cause that's what dreams are made of.

Real Rock. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/3/13

Now this is what real rock music sounds like, not that death metal TRASH!

I've wanted to be a fighter pilot my whole life. I want to create my own animated series. This song will be in it if I can make it. A song, to give hope for our veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. "So, Rangers, dry your eyes. Save all the tears you've cried. That's what dreams are made of. Marines, we belong in a world that must be strong. That's what dreams are made of!"

Go Go Power Rangers Forever | Reviewer: Zaibon | 6/24/12

This is truely Van Halen's best piece ever. Listening to this makes me think of being in the air with huge angels wings flying at high speeds. Plus I think about reliving everyone of my best memories. This is what has kept me going in life. Never give up on dreams and GO GO POWER RANGERS !!!!!!!

My pilot fantasy | Reviewer: Fantasy | 6/1/12

Lovely words I wish you meant to send them to me. I love you B I hope you can forgive my stupidity and anger That kept us apart all these years. Never let go your dream I never did.Fantasy

Dreams and Nursing School | Reviewer: Samantha | 3/23/12

For me, this song has truly been my motivation to get through my grueling accelerated nursing program that I am currently enrolled in. I am doing a 4 year degree in 20 months, and its super intense, but when I need to be reminded of why I am doing this program I listen to this song. It gets me so pumped up!! There is nothing bad you can say about this song, I simply love it :)

Dreams... | Reviewer: Brent | 10/4/10

I just recently became a VH fan. It's the best thing I've ever discovered, besides the girl I love, and airplanes...

You guys writing all these comments- you touch my heart! Really, truly, you do. It brought me to tears at almost every sentence, because I feel you all.

To me, this song is my theme song, for a multitude of reasons... Mainly, it makes me dream about the girl I love... It makes me wanna grab her hand and put her in my jet, take off straight up and keep going forever, at the speed of sound, on the very edge of the envelope containing this world. And I don't know why, it's just a dream world where everything else would be irrelevant as long as she's in that cockpit with me... I love her, my dream, my blue angel. I have loved her for four years, because I committed myself to he, yet I have never spoken to hear... My heart's broken. I think we're meant to be (if anything is MEANT to be).

This song also represents my dream- flying airplanes in the U.S. Navy. I have wanted to since I was about 10 years old (18 now). I really loved the F-14D Tomcat, but it has been retired... I loved that airplane so much... and the movie Top Gun... Dreams of flying the tomcat in this fantasy world of mine, that I hope to recreate in my life...

Lastly, my grandpa was an aircraft electrician in the Navy back in the day's of F-8's, F-4's, and A-4's, and A-7's... those are all the primary ones he worked on... I also dream of what it was like back then, in the good ole' days... when I watch the video of Blue Angels flying to "Dreams", it makes me dream about him... and how golden his days were.

On the flipside, there is a more modern video of the Blues flying F-18's to "Dreams"... It just blows me away, purely to see the performance of the modern team, especially in high definition...

That's the three most important things in my life, the past I live in with my grandpa, my current dreams of being with my love (in my aircraft :), and my dreams of way down the road in my later years, maybe flying for the Blue Angels... Combined, all these things just tear me up....

It's magic
It's beautiful
It's indescribable
It's Just my Dreams :)

Only good things come out of this song. This song reminds me that even through tough times, I've gotta keep on keepin' on. I'm thrilled Van Halen is going back on tour with Roth, even though this is a Hagar song. They're both great, and Van Halen is great.

Awesome | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/2/10

I heard this song on the radio the other day and it reminded me of the power rangers movie. I hadn't heard it since I saw the movie forever ago. I instantly came home and downloaded it and its been stuck in my head for over a week and I have probably listened to it a hundred times since. Van Halen is great and this is one of their best songs.

POWER RANGERS !!! | Reviewer: Liam | 6/28/10

To be honest with u all i only just started listening to Van Halen and the are AWSOMEEEEE this song is also a beautiful song at the end of the power rangers film when tommy looks at ... the pink ranger awsome love it.

Memories.. man.. memories. | Reviewer: gio | 5/10/10

This song remindsme when I was in middle high.. just great to hear it e/time, imagine I'm 45 years old now came to the U S OF A when I was 21years old. Hearing this song take me back e/time..me and my friends hanging at parties, married my high school sweet heart and still together and going at it. Now 5kids later, bills and a mortgage, struggling in this economy and loving it. Also.. Also.. a great song when I'm pumping at the gym. God I love life.. gotta stop now.. tears in my eyes.

Rock'n | Reviewer: Van Soup! | 1/21/10

This is one miller song! The lyrics ARE inspirational for me. I am only seventeen and have only heard this song at the end of Might Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie when I was younger, but I have just recently fallen in love with song. Listen to it all the time, because I have met my own dreams, and with this song going out to the world, I say live life to it's fullest and never forget your dreams! Peace!!

Renewed Motivation | Reviewer: Mike | 7/18/09

Raya hit the nail on the head. This song is also going straight to my favorites list in my Zune player when I need to get back on course.

I'm graduating college tomorrow (age 46) and this song fits the occasion. I was close to giving up so many times but stuck with it.

Don't give up on those dreams people!

My Anthem | Reviewer: Raya Fahreza | 6/27/09

This may sound silly but this song can actually bring tears to my eyes, it got me through tough times, believing in my dreams and keep going at it. This is my anthem. I dreamed about many things and in a way, i am living my dreams now.

Anyone who has a dream should listen to it every now and then and keep going at their dream. Because, in the end on dreams we will depend 'Cause that's what love is made of.

Simply touching | Reviewer: Claudio | 3/13/09

Dreams by Van Halen is , to me, VH best song. I wrote comments before about it and I always write the same thing: it gives me the goosebumps and makes my eyes wet, specially when Hagar starts singing with his high and powerful voice. Simply touching.
