I need a lover to give me
The kind of love that will last always
I need somebody uplifting
To take me away babe...oh yeah yeah
I want a lover who knows me yeah
Who understands how I feel inside
Someone to comfort and hold me
Through the long lonely nights
Till the dawn
Why don't you take me away

Dreamlover come rescue me
Take me up take me down
Take me anywhere you want to baby now
I need you so desperately
Won't you please come around
'Cause I wanna share forever with you baby

I don't want another pretender
To disillusion me one more time
Whispering words of forever
Playin with my mind

I need someone to hold on to
The kind of love that won't fly away
I just want someone to belong to
Everyday
Of my life
Always
So come and take me away

Dreamlover come rescue me
Take me up take me down
Take me anywhere you want to baby now
I need you so desperately
Won't you please come around
'Cause I wanna share forever with you baby

Oh yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Baby come and take me away

Dreamlover come rescue me
Take me up take me down
Take me anywhere you want to baby now
I need you so desperately
Won't you please come around -won't you please, pleeeaaassseee
'Cause I wanna share forever with you baby


Take me down whoa whoa whoaaa
Won't you please come around
'Cause I wanna share forever with you baby

    Dreaming of meeting my soul mate; who i see in my dreams and in my minds eye but cannot find on the earth... Hidden somewhere in the crowd.

    Means i want someone who knows what they want and wont try to play me for some fool. I want someone who loves me for me the good and the bad.

    Means i am tired of the same old crappy boyfriends that say they love you and care for you. I want a dream lover, one that is everything i want but for real.

    I was a kid when this song came out, and I would daydream about who my dreamlover would be when I grew up one day. I'm 31 and still waiting for someone like this to come along

    This song is magnificent! She needs a dreamlover who is true and to love her for who she is. I love the beat, a great song to dance to. And her whistle notes are spectacular! Please release another song as good as this!
