Sweet dreams are made of this (sounds like these)
Who am I to disagree?
I traveled the world
And the seven seas--
Everybody's looking for something.
Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused.

Oooh, yeah, whoa

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas--
Everybody's looking for something.

Ooh, yeah, whoa

(Hold your head up--Keep your head up--MOVIN' ON)
(Hold your head up--MOVIN' ON--Keep your head up--MOVIN' ON)
(Hold your head up--MOVIN' ON--Keep your head up--MOVIN' ON)
(Hold your head up--MOVIN' ON--Keep your head up)

Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused.

(Hold your head up--Keep your head up--MOVIN' ON)
(Hold your head up--MOVIN' ON--Keep your head up--MOVIN' ON)
(Hold your head up--MOVIN' ON--Keep your head up--MOVIN' ON)
(Hold your head up--MOVIN' ON--Keep your head up)

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas--
Everybody's looking for something.

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas--
Everybody's looking for something.

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas--
Everybody's looking for something.

    added this song to my playlist. a haunting minor melody. words are mysteriously negative to me, but Annie Lennox intrigues me and she does have a great voice..........

    Every one has their own idea of what love means to them. Constantly trying to please and be please. Do we ever get it right? Very seldom. Just love and live the way that makes you happy. If you find someone that fits and you fit, well, heck, its all goood.

    It means that everyone has personal preferences and the singer doesn't feel (s)he has a right to judge what other people desire.
