DreamWorld - ABBA

Recommended Posts

She is upset because her man is unrealistic. She urges him to face reality. The background vocals drive the verses, contrasting with the rest of the song. There are all kinds of checks and balances in ABBA's music. Certain titles are jammed together to distract from what might appear as cliche: "DreamWorld," "SummerNight City," "AngelEyes." Titles are second to this classical approach to rock n' roll.

After the movie in 1977, the group may have felt like stars. If so, their delusions of grandeur were short-lived. They sing, "We're not the stars of a Hollywood movie... I'm not so charming and you're not so groovy." Reality has a way of putting high expectations in perspective. The ladies are human, not angels in white.

We're not the stars of a hollywood movie
So what's the use to pretend
I'm not so charming and you're not so groovy
You've gotta face it my friend

Dream world
You've been living in a dream world
Trust me
You just can't escape from reality
Boy meets girl
Doesn't mean they're in a dream world
Here I am, there you are, we've gotta make it together
And we've made, it so far, so it can only get better

When you reach out
And you say to me 'how I love you girl'
When I hold you
Baby can't you see
It's a real dream world

You had your hopes and your high expectations
Somehow it doesn't seem right
I'm getting fed up with your accusations
I'm not your angel in white

Dream world
You've been living in a dream world
Trust me
You just can't escape from reality
Boy meets girl
Doesn't mean they're in a dream world
Here I am, there you are, we gotta make it together
And we've made, it so far, so it can only get better

When you reach out
And you say to me 'how I love you girl'
When I hold you
Baby can't you see
It's a real dream world
Dream world
You've been living in a dream world
Trust me
You just can't escape from reality
Boy meets girl
Doesn't mean they're in a dream world
Here I am, there you are, we gotta make it together
And we've made, it so far, so it can only get better
