Grande, Ariana - R.E.M. Lyrics

Mhm, last night, boy, I met you, yeah
When I was asleep (sleep)
You're such a dream to me, mmm, woah
And it was on a day like this, yeah
If you can believe
If you can believe (If you can believe)
You're such a dream to me

Before you speak, don't move
'Cause I don't wanna wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Don't wanna wake up, oh
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Boy, you're such a dream if you can believe, ayy
Boy, you're such a dream to me

"Excuse me, um, I love you"
I know that's not the way to start a conversation, trouble
I watch them other girls when they come and bug you
But I felt like I knew you, so I just wanted to hug you
Plus, you don't know your way around
You can stop your playing now
All your worries, lay 'em down, shh, don't say it loud
Is this real, baby?
(Bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum)
You like?
"I love you"
Who starts a conversation like that? Nobody, but I do
But you are not a picture, I can't cut you up and hide you
I'll get you out my mind, mhm, I tried to
But I just want to stand and yell
I will never dare to tell
Think I heard some wedding bells, shh, keep it to yourself
Is this real? (Is this real?)

Before you speak, don't move
'Cause I don't wanna wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Don't wanna wake up, oh no
Wake up, wake up, wake up
'Cause you're such a dream if you can believe
You're such a dream to me, mmm, boy

I could buy you anything, but I cannot buy you
Before your boy gets smart, I would never try to
You know I'm thinking to myself, "What happened, why you?"
But when I see you in my dreams, psh, I knew
You know how to treat it, you know how to eat it
You know how to beat it (I know how to keep it)
The Good Housekeeping Seal
(Bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum, bum)
I don't just wanna touch you
I'm tryna turn two single people into a couple
What's your next month like? Tell me what ya up to
We can leave right now, boy, you don't need a duffle
What about La Perla? Let Vickie keep her secret
Boy, it ain't no secret if I know you're gonna peep it, oh

Before you speak, don't move
'Cause I don't wanna wake up
Wake up, wake up, wa-wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wa-wake up
Oh, I don't wanna

'Cause you're such a dream (does this end?)
If you can believe, you're such a dream to me
To me, mmm, boy, to me

  9. Paulo Maurício silva lírio Lírio

    R.E.M _____________

  10. Jazz Perkins

    I listened to this version several times and musically I just don’t hear what y’all hear. There is not one second of this song that I like better than Bey’s version. Ari did the song the way she wanted but it wasn’t giving me what I needed. Her beats/shifts, don’t even change properly for me. The whole song sounds like it was punched in. Beyoncé has more emotion, her voice and lyrics are more sultry and sensual imo. You could tell this was originally Bey’s song. It fits her personality and her artistry. This song is for her man and it sounds like it! That I’m so in love I would rather stay asleep just to dream about you because real life doesn’t compare type love. Ari had to soften it to make it her own but she toned down the feeling of the song as well. It sounds like she’s never been in love on this song, like she’s going through the motions of a crush but not love. You could feel Bey’s version, the obsession, the desire. The placement of every note and harmony had a purpose, not just there as if it’s a routine. But y’all don’t feel me tho. She don’t want to wake up and it sounded like it too, an asmr lullaby is what it was. I like Ari, it’s cute but nah.

  20. avishay erenberg

    Who is the male voice in 2:44?

  21. Carys Hummel

    No hating because I don't know who listens to Mac Miller but how does that male voice sound like Mac? He doesn't sound like that at all. (I myself listen more Mac than Ari and more Mac than anything). And honestly a lot fans only like Mac because he was cute with Ari.
