Here Are the Lyrics to The Cranberries' 'Dreams'

After the tragic death of The Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O'Riordan last week, the band has had five of their songs resurface on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart, plus a 2,934 percent increase in streaming of the band's songs in the day that followed her death. 

One of the songs that has resurfaced as part of fans' tribute to the singer is "Dreams," one of the most dazzling displays of O'Riordan's captivating and unconventional voice, which hits its peak as she opens her vocals onto the song's bridge. Take a look at the song's full lyrics below: 

All my life
Is changing every day
In every possible way

In all my dreams
It's never quite as it seems
Never quite as it seems

I know I've felt like this before
But now I'm feeling it even more
Because it came from you

Then I open up and see
The person falling here is me
A different way to be

I warn more
Impossible to ignore
Impossible to ignore

They'll come true
Impossible not to do
Impossible not to do

Now I tell you openly
You have my heart so don't hurt me
You're what I couldn't find

Totally amazing mind
So understanding and so kind
You're everything to me

All my life
Is changing every day
In every possible way

And oh my dreams
It's never quite as it seems
'Cause you're a dream to me
Dream to me
