When you were little
You must have been something

I wish I was you
The dream will come true
Every dream has a name
This song is your dream

You know it's all me
But it's not what it seems
Three angels above
They dream us to life

And this dream is your story
You're the dream operator
Shake-it-up dream
Fix-it-up dream
I've been waiting so long

Hard to go on
You're out on your own
Let go of your life
Here in the clouds

And this is your story
You're the dream operator
And you dreamed it all
Do you know who you are?
