Background[]

"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

Lyrics[]

Living in a city of sleepless people
Who all know the limits and won't go too far outside the lines
Cause they're' out of their minds.
I wanna get out and build my own home
On a street where reality is not much different from dreams I've had
A dream is all I have...

Daydreaming
Daydreaming all the time
Daydreaming
Daydreaming into the night
And I'm alright

Creep past the hours like the shorter hand on the clock
Hanging on a wall of a schoolhouse somewhere
We wait for the bell
And we dream of somewhere else

Daydreaming
Daydreaming all the time
Daydreaming
Daydreaming into the night
And I'm alright

Not that I won't remember where I'm from
Just don't wanna be here no more
It's not enough
(We're only half alive)
I'm gonna go
(We're only half alive)
Where the rest of the dreamers go

Where the dreamers go

Daydreaming
Daydreaming all the time
Daydreaming
Daydreaming into the night
And I'm alright

Daydreaming
Daydreaming all the time
Daydreamer
We used to be half alive
Now I'm alright
