Future Islands - Little Dreamer Lyrics

I caught you sleeping here, all wrapped in wool
I caught you sleeping here, almost broke my heart
I found you dreaming
I'm dreaming of you always

When I was just a child, a lonely boy
I held onto my dreams, like they could run from me
The hopes I harbored fled, as they often do
But I still dreamed of you
And now my dreams come true

And as we say goodnight, I hold you close and tight
No more raging suns, only waning ones
Like the waxing scar where my lonely heart
Once bloomed before I met you

My little dreamer, I'll always
Always dream of you

  12. Luna Marice

    this song means so much to me. it makes me sad, happy and melancholic at the same time, it always gives me goosebumps.. this is the most beautiful love song of all time. when you hear the birds tweetin', you can feel the sweet sun on your skin, you can smell the flowers. it's like the sweetest dream you've ever had. when i discovered this song i had a romance with the guy i'm still in love with and it's almost 6 years ago. wish i could go back for a moment or two.. ♥

  26. Milo Zabál

    I caught you sleeping here, all wrapped in wool
    I caught you sleeping here, almost broke my heart
    I found you dreaming
    I'm dreaming of you always

    When I was just a child, a lonely boy
    I held onto my dreams, like they could run from me
    The hopes I harbored fled, as they often do
    But I still dreamed of you
    And now my dreams come true

    And as we say goodnight, I hold you close and tight
    No more raging suns, only waning ones
    Like the waxing scar where my lonely heart
    Once bloomed before I met you

    My little dreamer, I'll always
    Always dream of you

    Milo Zabál

    Where are you from Luz Aguirre? I would like to read what you write. Would you mind? I write too, but most poetry and just for myself. Cheers from here. Your name reminds me of someone pretty dear to me.

    Luz Aguirre

    I'm from California and soon I will post one of my published poems for you to read.. I still have not been 'discovered' actually. I believe I am relatively talented & I have won every writing contest I've ever entered. I know I can self publish online but I want to do it the old-fashioned way, preferably hard-bound, gold foil paper 😅

    Milo Zabál

    That sounds great. I'll be waiting then. And thanks for considering me. Wish you the best.
    Pd: Maybe I'll share something too :)

    Luz Aguirre

    The Jaws of Life
    Have you ever heard of the flower that grew in the underworld?
    The wickedly beautiful thing always seemed to be grinning.
    Still, it's barbed-wire-circled petals didn't help a thing,
    trampled down,
    100 years ago, today
    The atmosphere still won't be rid of its aftertaste

    Frail and defeated, but forever un-perished
    The taunting of her beauty, still here
    is like a respirator, inserting in the hopeless, a yearning,
    pumping up and down in our chests, the want again, for what we had given and thought, forgotten.
    Exhausted, we choke on the perfumed air.
    Still with the will to gain something,
    something over there

  27. Krish Bud

    damn found this shit by accident beautiful

  28. Edgar Sandoval

    I wish I could dedicate songs like this to the girl I'm in love with but shes too much into yg and all that her mentality got fucked

    Philip Preston

  32. marcmac

    I lost a friend this year and he sings to me now through this .thank you future islands


    marcmac I know you wrote this months ago but I'm listening tonight because it was a song my husband used to send me and next week is the 5th anniversary of his death. Everything they put out On the Water and before reminds me of him. I'm sorry you lost your friend. At least we have this music <3

    NeoTokyo48 Techno's the GAME!

    It never really gets easy I lost a parent when I was 20 I'm 32

    C M

    so sorry to hear man. I came to this song as i broke up with someone, can't begin to fathom the pain of your loss. Wishing you courage and self-compassion <3


    @NeoTokyo48 Techno's the GAME! I lost my stepfather when I was 20. I know it's not the same but it still hurts. I'm 27 now and life is good; but I feel like sometimes it's good to be sad about it

    Alice: How long is forever?
    Rabbit: sometimes, only one second...


    Hey, that quote sounds great, but I can't find it anywhere in Alice in Wonderland or in Through the Looking Glass. Are we all sure that it's really a quote from the book, and not misattributed?

    julio Pasillas

    +bebrasha you have reason that quote don't appertain to lewis carrol... although mistakenly is attributed to him. The sentence I taked from de movie of the Tim Burton wonderland Alicia.
