Lyrics:

(Genius)

What I want, you’ve got

And it might be hard to handle

But like a flame that burns the candle

The candle feeds the flame

Yeah, yeah, what I’ve got, full stock

Of thoughts and dreams that scatter

And you pull them all together

And a-how, I can’t explain

[Chorus]

Oh yeah, well, well you (Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh ooh)

You make a-my dreams come true

(You) You (You, you, ooh ooh ooh, you)

Well, well, well you (Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh ooh)

Oh yeah, a-you make a-my dreams come true

(You, you, you, ooh ooh ooh, you)

Well yeah

[Verse 2]

On a night when bad

Dreams become a screamer

When they’re messing with the dreamer

I can laugh it in the face

Twist and shout my way out

And wrap yourself around me

‘Cause a-I ain’t the way you found me

And I’ll never be the same

[Chorus]

Oh yeah, well, ’cause you (Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh ooh)

Mmm hmm, you make a-my dreams come true

(You, you, you, ooh ooh ooh, you)

Whoa yeah, well, well, well you (Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh ooh)

Woo woo, you make a-my dreams come true

(You, you, you, ooh ooh ooh, you)

Oh yeah

[Instrumental Break]

Well, listen to this

Ow

[Bridge]

I’m down on my daydream

Oh, that sleepwalk should be over by now, I know

[Chorus]

Ah you

Yeah a-yeah, you make a-my dreams come true

(You, you, you, ooh ooh ooh, you)

Oh yeah, I’ve been waiting for, waiting for you, girl

(Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh ooh)

Oh yeah, you make a-my dreams come true

(You, you, you, ooh ooh ooh, you)

Me, you, me, you, me

I’ve been waiting for, waiting for you, girl

(Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh ooh)

Oh my, you make a-my dreams come true

(You) Oh (You, you, ooh ooh ooh, you)

Whoa ooh whoa, I’ve been waiting for, waiting for, waiting for

(Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh ooh)

Waiting for, waiting for, waiting for, waiting

You make my dreams

(You, you, you, ooh ooh ooh, you)

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh ooh ooh

I’ve been waiting for you, girl

(Ooh, ooh, ooh ooh ooh)

You make my dreams

(You, you, you, ooh ooh ooh, you)
