The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “sleep.” 

I sleep so little, I have trouble relating to the concept anymore. But, when I do sleep, I dream. I used two of my fav dream songs last week for the picture/photograph challenge, so let’s move right to number three, Dreamlover by Mariah Carey.
Released on July 27, 1993, as the lead single from her third studio album, Music Box (1993), Dreamlover was written by Carey and Dave Hall. It experienced strong worldwide success, becoming Carey’s seventh chart topper on the US Billboard Hot 100, remaining there for eight weeks. It peaked at number one in Canada, and became a top-ten single in Australia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.
The song pictures a protagonist calling for a perfect lover, her “dreamlover,” to whisk her away into the night and not disillusion her like others in the past.
The video was shot in upstate New York, during August 1993. It includes an appearance by Carey’s dog Jack, and shows Carey dancing in a flowerbed and field, swimming in a large pond, boarding a hot air balloon, and dancing alongside several shirtless male dancers.
