Song of the Week: A Total Dream!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a great spring break or how we Latins call it Semana Santa (Holly Week). I haven't written since Wednesday because I was out of town in the warm weather resting. Anyway this weeks song is called "I Must Be Dreaming" by The Maine. Really sweet song and both the acoustic and the studio version are great. I did an artist profile on The Maine a while back but I recently cant stop listening to this song.

The reason I like this song so much is because of the enrapturing lyrics and the guitar in the acoustic version. Another thing that is great is that this is one of those bands that when they sing live they totally rock. John sings great live and the band is completely in tune. The chorus is completely breath taking:
"Tell me that you love me and it'll be alright.
Are you thinking of me?
Just come with me tonight.
You know I need you.
Just like you need me.
Can't stop, won't stop, I must be dreaming.
Can't stop, won't stop, I must be dreaming."
This part is great because you see that the feelings are mutual and its just so romantic. Then the song changes and its as if the girl had said this part to the guy at some point.
My other favorite part of the lyrics is the first verse:
"She thinks I'm crazy.
Judging by the faces that she's making.
And I think she's pretty.
But pretty's just part of the things she does that amaze me.
And she calls me sweetheart.
I love it when she wakes me when it's still dark.
And she watches the sun.
But she's the only one I have my eyes on."
I just find this verse so realistic. Its true that girls do weird faces when a guy they like or draws their attention does something. I also find it really sweet that the looks of the girl aren't what makes her whole to the guy but how she acts and is.

Well I hope you enjoy this song and if you want to learn a bit more about The Maine click here to view the artist profile I put together.
