Finally your time has come
Now's my chance to turn and run
Like I always do

Build a story in my head
It was love before we met
Happy, with my idea with you

Stay where you are
Please don't break my heart

Love you in my daydream
Don't open your mouth, open your mouth
Everything I'll ever need
Spoil it now, spoil it now
You stood up and I fell down

Watching me, watching you
I know what you wanna do
But I'm afraid of my wish coming true

So I paint a picture in my mind, that
I go back to older times
It's better than being with you

Stay where you are
Please don't break my heart

Love you in my daydream
Don't open your mouth, open your mouth
Everything I'll ever need
Spoil it now, spoil it now
You stood up and I fell down

I don't know how to come down
I was lost and now I am found
You stood up and I fell down

Love you in my daydream
Don't open your mouth, open your mouth
Everything I'll ever need
Spoil it now, spoil it now

Love you in my daydream
Don't open your mouth, open your mouth
Everything I'll ever need
Spoil it now, spoil it now

Love you in my daydream

    It means she's afraid of facing reality in fear that the person she loves does not love her back, thus she's stuck in her daydream.

    I've never heard this song before but by reading the lyrics i understand that she wants him to feel the same as she does for him... She pretends both of them feel the same but if he breaks it by saying i don't love you. Than everything will be just a sad day dream :/ which is sad because every girl has a crush on a great guy but he nvr notices that she is their this making us fantasize about them being together.

    She wants to love him, does love him, but is fearful that the reality will not be the dream and that as soon as he loves her she will be scared and ruin it
