Once Upon a Dream Lyrics
I know you, that look in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
And I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you'll do You'll love me at once, the way...

I think to write this ballad is to be the great song for relationships and so when the producer come in the studio they wrote once upon a dream, but it’s sound like the choir of ladies singing but they’re so good with singing at church but we liked that.

It sounds like a couple getting back together. She knows him well, they've walked together before. The dream was the relationship they had before that ended. Relationships are not perfect and plans don't always go the way we want them to, visions are seldom what they seem, but doesn't mean they can't make it work. He has that gleam in his eyes, she's seen it in his eyes before, he fancies her. He will love her again just like he once did before.

I think it's about how you used to have a relationship. It was perfect. Then it ended quite suddenly, like waking up from a dream. After "waking up", you wonder if that love was even real. "That gleam in your eyes" is just the faint memory of the love you once had. This song just makes me cry.
I think it’s about having a unhealthy obsession on a love interest that won’t return your affections and the person is afraid of their admirer so they do everything they can to escape the admirer’s twisted vision of love but nothing seems to work and the person is trapped and can’t escape

I think it’s about having an unhealthy obsession with a crush and so he/she is dreaming that the two were a couple so that’s why Lana del Rey sounds like she is waking up And the person is afraid of their admirer and the person in love is probably watching them at every moment so the admirer is planning to kill their love interest if it turns out that they don’t return their affection just my assumption

I think it means that the person you like you made them seem amazing in your head but then in reality they not as great as you thought they would be so its like a dream.

I think it's about have a vision of perfection (maybe perfect man) and that person doesn't exist or you think that you find a perfect soul-mate and you don't know him/her so much and it's seems perfect and it's really not.You just dream about perfection.
