Daydreamer, sitting on the sea
Soaking up the sun he is a real lover,
Making up the past
And feeling up his girl like he's never felt her figure before
A jaw dropper
Looks good when he when he walks,
He is the subject of their talk
He would be hard to chase,
But good to catch
And he could change the world with his hands behind his back,
You can find him sitting on your doorstep
Waiting for the surprise
And he will feel like he's been there for hours
And you can tell that he'll be there for life

Daydreamer, with eyes that make you melt
He lends his coat for shelter plus he's there for you
When he shouldn't be
But he stays all the same, waits for you, then sees you through
There's no way I could describe him
What I'll say this, just what I'm hoping for

But I will find him sitting on my doorstep
Waiting for the surprise
And he will feel like he's been there for hours
And I can tell that he'll be there for life
And I can tell that he'll be there for life

    Daydreamer reminds me of my someone, single for 5 years, and of choice of course, he is hard to please by means of a woman, and many people say that he is the most handsome man in the world, ti s not his looks or his clothes, it is him. The way he walks, the way he talks, his infinite knowledge on more then just books, and just the joy of his company, easily spreading laughter and joy, but hard as a rock when he needs to be. The heart of a champion, and no one can knock him down. This is what the song makes me think of someone just so irresistible its unhuman.

    This song reminds me of my boyfriend now. A gentleman who will wait for me all day just to see my face, the guy I can spend hours with even if its just to sit next to one another. Supportive, sweet, and faithful but with a longing purpose and hopeful futher, which we both daydream about. Not to mention he's always goofy with his head in the clouds. This song couldn't be anymore perfect for me to remind me of him, or any more perfect to listen too its so relaxing.

    I realize this is a very different view and probably is not at all the way adele intended it to be, but to me, this song epitomizes my late friend and is about him and his life. He took his own life and I am left wondering why, but "i can tell he'll be there for life" in my heart and the hearts of others.

    Adele said the song is about a boy who she fell madly in love with but couldn't deal with the fact that he was bisexual; she said she couldn't deal with fighting off both girls and boys. The song is about him and how he was everything she'd ever hoped for but when it came down to it she couldn't be with him. Hence the lyric, "all I say is just what I'm hoping for'
    quite a beautiful sentiment :)

    So catchy and meaningful. Sadly all the boys in my life have done the opposite to me. I left the school for two years, and my friend duffed me, won't talk to me, etc. And friend that were boys just would curse at me and won't even talk to me.
