"Daydreaming" is the fourth track and the third single from Paramore's fourth studio album "Paramore". It was released as a single solely in the UK on December 2nd, 2013.
"It came together after six months of listening to Blondie’s Greatest Hits on repeat. This was during another case of writers’ block, more of a milder case this time. Right before I went to L.A., I was staying at my grandparents’ house, and I woke up one morning and literally sang the first line of the chorus out loud to myself. It was almost like I was dreaming it, and I didn’t want to forget it. So I recorded it on my phone and showed Taylor later that day. It was one of those songs where he didn’t fully hear it at first, so I had to do a little convincing. Honestly, I’m so proud of that one, almost more than anything else that we’ve done. It was the first song we recorded for the record, and all three of us were driving around L.A. just listening to it and looking at palm trees. It was a real “We’re not in Kansas anymore” type of thing. I felt so proud of us. It did sound like we grew up. And lyrically, it was my “A Whole New World” [from Aladdin]. Every girl relates to that song. I really just wanted something new so bad and I wanted to feel a different way. I spent a lot of time in my head just envisioning what could be." - Hayley Williams
