Be Like That Lyrics

He spends his nights in California
Watching the stars on the big screen.
Then he lies awake and wonders
Why can't that be me?
Cause in his life he's filled with all these good intentions.
He's left a lot of things he'd rather not mention...

    This song is about peoples dreams. but it goes farther than that. the first part of the song is saying about a boys big dream for life and the second is about a girl who wishes for all of the simple kinds of things that we take granted in life. so the song is saying how everyone has dreams, some are big, some are small, but sometimes the only thing that the people can do is wish because their dreams are out of reach.

    When you know what you want, you yearn for it. You wish that you could be like you want and you wish that you could have all you want.

    "i'd give anything just to live one day in those sheos." The yearning becomes a burning desire and you want it with all that you are and you would give up anything for it.

    I believe this song is about wanting something more than you have, even if it's only for a short while and giving almost anything to get there.
