I Had a Dream is an unreleased by AURORA. It was performed live at her high school graduation.

About the song Edit

AURORA wrote this song when she was 9.

It deals with conflict, confrontation, materialism and wilful ignorance – all topics we struggle with in today’s world.

She described it in an interview as being nine minutes long and with no chorus, but perhaps this perception of what is, clearly, a beautiful and insightful song was a product of nervousness due to performing it.

Lyrics  Edit

Last night I had a dream that we were fighting
Cause we had different ways in wrong rhyme
And as the words ran out and you were shouting
I saw there would be no peace in here tonight

Then I dreamt we both lost in the end
Well, you proved your point but now you've lost a friend
The light we used to live has reached the end
And we both want to smile back, though I pretend
Oh I pretend

Ah, oh I had a dream
I had a dream
But it all just seemed so real

But it all seems to be longing for this glory
To get fame and fortune of our own
But will we, in the end, be satisfied
When we're living in our glory, all alone?


And this night I had a dream that we were running
Running far away from our mistakes
We were blaming others for the wrongs we made
And then we were down because we were not the one we paid

Ah, oh I had a dream
I had a dream
Oh, I had this dream
But it all just seemed so real

One night I had a dream a man hit his woman
Cause she was standing in the way and he was drunk
And every Monday morning she was brave
When the man dove far away inside his truck

But tonight I had a dream that we were just watching
All devastating things this world can bear
We could feel the lightness way over here
But when it didn't us concern, we didn't care

No we wouldn't lift a finger for the lost ones
We wouldn't give money to the poor
Our happiness has come in shape of gold
And we forget what's truly worth living for

Ah, I had a dream
I had a dream
Oh, I had this dream
But it all just seemed so real
It seemed so real
Just seemed so real
It seemed so real

I have these dreams and they seem so real
And they seem so much more to me than just dreams
