Dan Hartman - I Can Dream About You Lyrics




No more timing
Each tear that falls from my eyes
I'm not hiding
The remedy to cure this old heart of mine

I can dream about you
If I can't hold you tonight
I can dream about you
You know how to hold me just right

I can dream about you
If I can't hold you tonight
I can dream about you
You know how to hold me just right

Moving sidewalks
I don't see under my feet
Climbing up from
Down here below where the street sees me lonely for you, oh

I can dream about you
If I can't hold you tonight
I can dream about you
You know how to hold me just right

I can dream about you
I'm gonna press my lips against you
And hold you to me
I can dream about you
You know you got me spellbound
What else can it be?

Moving sidewalks
I don't see under my feet
Climbing up from
The pain in my heart cause it's you that I need

I can dream
Whoa-oh-oh-oh, (whoa-oh-oh-oh), I can dream
Yes, I can dream
Whoa-oh-oh-oh

I don't understand it
I can't keep my mind off loving you
(Not even for a minute)
Ooh, now baby, I'm caught up
In the magic I see in you
There's one thing to do

I can dream about you
If I can't hold you tonight
I can dream about you
You know how to hold me just right
(Whoa-oh-oh-oh)

I can dream about you
If I can't hold you tonight (ooh)
I can dream about you
Oh, I can dream, I can dream
(Whoa-oh-oh-oh)

I can dream about you
Oh, I can dream about you, whoa-oh-whoa
I can dream about you, oh-oh
You know how to hold me just right
(Whoa-oh-oh-oh)
I can dream about you, I can dream

  3. Mike Jones

    I miss the 80s.☹

  4. BigDaddyJinx

    I still can't believe he's white. Not to mention the irony of seeing a black man lip syncing this gem in the movie.

  5. Mohammed Hanif

    Love is best,but very hard to come, some guys have all the luck, anyway love this song listen to it in my car a lot,very good memories, some good and some bad, 70,80, 90music was best.

  6. Thornie Holden

    Ahhh my high school days watching video music box

  7. Robbie

    Debra Willard

  8. Luciana Silva

    Oh meu Deues tão anos 80 de sonhos e eu com meus 7 anos

  9. Don Avan

    I was walking my chihuahuas in Beverly hills back in the 80s and these 2 girls were driving a red jeep, wearing funny looking sunglasses and having a bad hair day cruised by me having this song cranked with a old blue Chevy nova clunker tailing them. Ill never forget it, quite funny.

  10. Io Silva

    I CAN DREAM IN 2020 😍😍😍😍😍😎😎😎😎😎😎

  11. Io Silva

    I LOVE THIS SONG! 😍😍😍😍😍😍

  12. gsar

    Wow...
    I only ever saw the video clip my parents had on VHS of this song with the black singers...30+ yrs later I find out he's white😐oh dear lol...great song though, great deception😃.

    Chase M

    gsar he died of AIDS. Did you know that?

  13. Maggie 210

    80s THE BEST PERIOD OF MY LIFE👍👍👍❤❤❤❤❤❤❤Thank God i was born in 1965😃😃😃😃😃Who else?

  14. wdharvey1

    Dan Hartman, obviously used to be a bartender. One of the comments on this video states "the '80's went by so fast"...truer words have never been spoken.

  15. Frank M.

    They played the heck out of this song in 1984.. oh my god i remember it how time flies

  16. mrhoffame

    What a jam!!!!!

  17. Thomas Nappo

    A good look back

  18. mark neville

    Gone too soon
    Dan Hartman.
    He was going to be massive for years.
    You just knew his voice
    had something special.

    Chase M

    mark neville AIDS killed him I case you didn’t know.

    Paul Bryant

    Chase M FYI, AIDS was in many medical cases Tuberculosis or Pneumonia reclassified. Enough evidence exists that as "AIDS" cases went up tb and pneu. went down. AIDS hysteria of the 80's much like the flu and vaccine scares of today, based on flawed medical assumptions and research greed.

  19. Art JR V

    I’m 37 and I’m ashamed to admit that Ive always thought this was a Hall & Oates jam 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Kevyn Hansyn

    Guilty here as well.

    Big E

    Hall and Oates did this song first I believe.

    Debra Willard

    @Big E no, he wrote it for them but theyturned it down cause they had an album out to promote

    Debra Willard

    he wrote it for them but they had an album out to promote

    Big E

    @Debra Willard oh ok

  20. James Holland

    What a wonderful song, great voice .... however, the video doesn't really hold up ..... not sure what's going on there!

  21. Geovanny Barrera

    Escochandola 2020

  22. John Russell

    streets of fire, older movie, a bad ass comes into town, kicks ass, leaves his girl behind for a better future

  23. John Russell

    a memory is strong as its moment

  24. John Russell

    oh yeah, dreamin

  25. Tennis

  26. anthony mcneil

  27. CHIEF COMMANDER

    THE 80s Will always be in our hearts and souls

  28. brian Smith

    I just found out who this guy was. I thought he was black. as in the band on the tv. Now I find he wrote Free ride for Edgar Winter. Great writer and musician. Gone too soon.

    Moshoane Tafita Phasha

    Very talented and unbelievable. I too thought he was white until early 2000 age of internet..

  29. Krishna Timung

    You can rediscover the 80s generation only through.
    Cassettes.
    CDs
    Vinyl records
    Photos
    The only way to relive 80s..

  39. David Robinson

    The Good thing about this song (amongst many) is that if you put the emphasis on any of the 5 words, creative imagination can last 4 eternity provided 3 (oops almost gave my tel. No. Away) Ciao 4 Now ;)

  40. Diana Prince

    Such a BRILLIANT song, god i miss the 80s, they were wonderful and the music will never be matched! Awesome!!

  41. JR Oliver

    The best time ever '80s went so fast ... Music today Horrible.

  42. musicalmelodies

    Is that the same girl from Wham's! "Last Christmas" ??

  43. Renato Silva Santos

    Radio itatiaia fm 102,3 tocava muito essas reliquias,nostalgia pura

  44. Steve S

    Joyce Hyser was SO hot!!!!

  45. DringBR

    This song was perfectly cast for "Streets of Fire" and it was hard to believe it was not actually sung by the band in the movie. When I starting checking out Dan Hartman more I realized he was in the Edgar Winter Band 10 years earlier when he wrote another very soulful song "Free Ride."

  46. Nacho Jordan

    That is the happiness of the life. Dancing before that music finish 4:00

  47. juan hernandez

    de vuelta a los 80s la mejor epoca de mi vida.

  48. antbojo

    Oh yes the 80s"

  53. Alanita Mac

    My sister says that sometimes, when she listens to old music, she imagines living in a better time, even though she was born in 2003. Listening to music like this, I understand what she is talking about.

  62. R Cruz

    I remember the first time i heard this song i was in a nightclub and this video was played on a giant screen. Everyone on the dance floor stopoed to watch. Music videos were still relatively new.

  63. laloquiros

    R.I.P. Dan Hartman and thank you for the music & the great times that came with it. #leftmyheartinthe80’s

  64. wade shimojo

    I didn't know the singer was this guy 😂. I thought it was the guys from that 80s movie, forgot the title already. The one with Michael Pare and Diane Lane.

  65. Carlos Eduardo De Morais Morais

    Ahh the 80s. Where the dreams were.
    1. Go into business school. Wear them suits.
    2. Become a bar tender
    3. Sail a boat.

  73. rush thatspeaks

    My friend said this would be the song of that summer. 1986 I believe. He was right, I was pissed.

  74. Aletta Mc

    I came here so I could remember the movie this song was in...streets of fire!! 42 yr old obsessed with past music.....can you blame me🤷🏽‍♀️😁

  75. pmccachren

    So 80's. Great song!

  76. Rosy cb

    I lo ve Yo u!!!!!!! I am crying hearing this song...So much memories,,,i want to go back in time...
    Great singer....love you so much!!!!!!!!!! Forever in my Heart!!

  77. Rozenax Sax

    Dan Hartman was Gay. Just thought I'd mention it so all the straight homophobes who like this song but didn't know he was.....eeek....Queer....eeek....can think about the hateful stupidity of your attitudes. Music is Universal and has no Color, Gender, nor Orientation and there have been musical geniuses of all persuasions. If you love music, you need to think about that because music only exists because human beings like this man create it from within their hearts, souls and minds. If you can hate someone for being gay, then you yourself lack heart, soul and mind.

  78. Carson Lowe

    At 67, appreciate those words, Hanan.
    I still dream...

  79. Jorge Luis

    Essa música marcou minha época coisa boa demais.

  80. Jeremy Haines

  90. Brian Charles

    'Streets of Fire!!'🔥🔥

  91. Guilherme felipe

    Rip Dan Hartman. 1950 - 1994

  92. David Robinson

    Dan Hartman has good taste in this video!

  93. Pam R

    I was reminded of this great song by The Professor of Rock mentioning it in a recent video...always loved it.

  94. Stephanie Hernandez

    Luved this song when I was dating my boyfriend. In 1985 we've been married 32 years..I was just 15 we first met...

  95. Marcel Walker

    I've always loved this song, but never saw the video until now. It's a sweet curiosity, but I'm intrigued how such a powerful vocal delivery got shackled to such a mediocre video. In this case, the lip-synced version that many of us remember from STREETS OF FIRE was honestly a better treatment. Regardless, we still dream about Dan Hartman!

  96. Gregorio Clemente

    Fabulous 80's music. R.I.P dear Dan

  97. luana moraes

    Dan hatman eterno

  98. Cat Lady

    Love love this song !! The movie was cool too😃
