Testo[]

Mmm-hmm
Last night, boy, I met you, yeah
When I was 'sleep (Sleep)
You're such a dream to me (You're such a dream to me), mmm, woah, woah
And it was on a day like this, yeah
If you can believe
If you can believe (If you can believe), mmmm
You're such a dream to me (You're such a dream to me)

Before you speak, don't move
Cause I don't wanna
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up (Don't wanna wake up, oh)
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Boy, you're such a dream
If you can believe, ayy
Boy, you're such a dream to me (To me)

"Excuse me, um, I love you"
I know that's not the way to start a conversation, trouble
I watch 'em other girls (Girls) when they come and bug you
But I felt like I knew you, so I just wanted to hug you
Plus you don't know your way around
You can stop your playing now
All your worries, lay 'em down (Shh, Don't say it loud)
(Is this real, baby?) (Is this real?)
(Bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum)
You're like:
"I love you, who starts a conversation like that?"
Nobody but I do
But you are not a picture, I can't cut you up and hide you
I'll get you out my mind (Get you out my mind), ah, or try to
But I just want to stand and yell
I will never dare to tell
Think I heard some wedding bells (Think I heard some wedding bells) (Shh, Keep it to yourself), hey
(Is this real?) (Is this real? Is this real?)

Before you speak, don't move (Don't move)
Cause I don't wanna (Cause I don't wanna wake up)
Wake up (Wake up)
Wake up
Wake up (Wake up) (Ooh, bae)
Wake up (Don't wanna wake up, oh, no)
Wake up (Wake up)
Wake up
Wake up (Wake up)
Wake up
Cause you're such a dream
If you can believe (If you can believe) (You can believe)
You're such a dream to me (You're such a dream to me), mmm, boy

I could buy you anything, but I could not buy you (I could buy you anything, but I could not buy you)
Before your boy gets smart, I would never try to
You know I'm thinking to myself (You know I'm thinking to myself):
"What happened?, Why you? (Why you?) (Why you?)"
But when I see you in my dreams (Shh), I know (I know)
You know how to treat it (You know how to treat it)
You know how to eat it (You know how to eat it)
You know how to beat it (You know how to beat it) (I know how to keep it)
The Good Housekeeping Seal (The Good Housekeeping Seal)
(Bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum)
I don't just wanna touch you
I'm tryna turn two single people into a couple (Into a couple)
What's your next month like? Tell me what you're up to (Tell me what you're up to) (Up to)
We can leave right now, boy, you don't need a duffel
What about La Perla? Let Vickie keep her secret
Boy, it ain't no secret if I know you're gonna peep it, (Oh-hey)

Before you speak, don't move (Don't move)
Cause I don't wanna (Cause I don't wanna wake up)
Wake up (Wake up)
Wake up
Wake up (Wake up)
Wake up
Wake up (Wake up)
Wake up
Wake up (Wake up)
Wake up (No, I don't wanna)
Cause you're such a dream (Does this end?)
If you can believe (If you can believe) (Can believe)
You're such a dream to me (You're such a dream to me), mmm, boy (To me) (Me)

Mmm, yeah
Mmm, yeah
Mmm
Mmm
Mmm
