"Everything I Do" (stylized in all lowercase; commonly known as "Dream") is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended for the deluxe edition for her sixth studio album, Positions.

Background[]

The first snippet was leaked on January 20, 2023, on a website that’s used for unreleased music. The snippet was soon uploaded to the user's telegram account. In a now deleted interview, Josh Conerly, who worked on Positions confirmed that this song was going to be on the album and that he also did the drums for it, who later did drums for "Obvious".

On February 4, 2023, a second snippet leaked. The next day the full song leaked on February 5, 2023, due to a group buy being successfully completed.

The full session leaked on January 4, 2024, along with several other unreleased songs and sessions.

Trivia[]

  • This marks the third leak from the Positions era, following "Outgrown" and "Girl is Mine".
    • When the song originally leaked it was titled "Dream", but it was revealed during the mass leak on March 27, 2023, that the song was actually titled "Everything I Do".
    • The "final" version that was first leaked on February 5, 2023, was thought to be real, but it was later confirmed to be an edited bounce that was made from the sessions.
  • The drum/percussion sample that was used in this song is also used again in Victoria Monét's song "Touch Me" from her EP, JAGUAR.
  • This song has a few references to the song "R.E.M."
    • The line "I never thought I’d wake up" is a reference to "Before you speak, don’t move cause I don’t wanna wake up."
    • A few more references that was made in this song from R.E.M. is the line "your love was just a vision, but I'm still tryna see it boy" is a R.E.M. reference to the lyric "last night, boy I met you when I was asleep".
    • The line "I swear you were just right next to me. I swear you were just right next to me. You tell me it was just a dream. There must be something wrong with me" is a continuation reference to the lyric from R.E.M. "Boy, you’re such a dream to me".
  • The line "so now I guess I’ll have to love a little harder" is a reference to "Love Me Harder".

Lyrics[]

[Chorus]
The things I'd never do, it's like, I do for you
And words I'd never say, but now, I say them too
And boy I'll never know, the things you get me through
'Cause everything I do, it's like, I do for you

[Verse 1]
I never thought I'd wake up, my mind was super fucked up
But nothing ever happened, and everything I made up
They knew our love was fiction, your love was just a vision
But I'm still tryna see it boy

[Pre-Chorus]
I swear you were just right next to me
I swear you were just right next to me
You tell me it was just a dream
There must be something wrong with me

[Chorus]
The things I'd never do, it's like, I do for you (Oh, baby)
And words I'd never say, but now, I say them too (Oh, yeah)
And boy I'll never know, the things you get me through
'Cause everything I do, it's like, I do for you

[Verse 2]
So now I guess I'll have to, love a little harder (Yeah)
Write a lot more often (Yuh)
Make a fuckin' billion
'Cause if perhaps I’m living for two of us (Two of us)
I'll have to lift twice as much

[Pre-Chorus]
I swear you were just right next to me
I swear you were just right next to me
You tell me it was just a dream
There must be something wrong with me

[Chorus]
Said, the things I'd never do, it's like I do for you
And words I'd never say, but now, I say them too (Yuh)
And boy you'll never know, the things you get me through
'Cause everything I do, it's like, I do for you (Oh, ah)

[Outro]
I, say them too
Oh, yeah (Oh, yeah, ay)
