I wish you could see your face right now
'Cause you're grinning like a fool
And we're sitting on your kitchen floor
On a Tuesday afternoon
Doesn't matter when we get back
To doing what we do
'Cause right now could last forever
Just as long as I'm with you

You're just a daydream away,
I wouldn't know what to say if I had you.
And I'll keep you a daydream away,
Just watch from a safe place,
So I never have to lose...

We would go out on the weekend
To escape our busy lives
And we'd laugh at all the douche-bag guys
Chasing down their desperate wives
I would drink a little too much
And you'd offer me a ride
I would offer you a t-shirt
And you would stay another night

You're just a daydream away,
I wouldn't know what to say if I had you.
And I'll keep you a daydream away,
Just watch from a safe place,
So I never have to lose...

We never stood a chance out there
Shooting love in real-time
So we'll take it over ice tonight
With a little salt
And a little lime

You're just a daydream away
I wouldn't know what to say if I had you
And I'll keep you a daydream away
Just watch from a safe place
So I never have to lose...

You're just a daydream away
I wouldn't know what to say if I had you

    To me, a daydream away is literally my life in lyrics. The love of my life is always there, always smiling, and we go through times together, good and bad, but before we got together, we were really good friends and even though we liked eachother, we didnt want to admit it. And then, when we first got together, we didn't really want to talk about it because it was quite awkward but then, everything was alright and we know how much we mean to each other, but its always hard, no matter how much you try xxx

    I think a daydream away is a wonderful song especially to me because it reminds me of the guy i love. It reminds me of how much i love him. Shanks!

    The song is pretty easy to interpret.

    It's about a guy that's probably in love with a girl that's really close to him. Most likely a best friend. Their relationship is extremely significant to them, so they don't make it exclusive/offical. They're scared of what might happen if one of them makes a mistake and their relationship is harmed. So, they just play it safe as friends, despite the fact that they are both deeply in love with each other.

    I'm in a similar situation... I know the feeling all too well.
