Adele: Daydreamer Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2008
Soaking up the sun he is a
Real lover, makin' up the past and feeling up his girl like he's never felt her figure before
A jaw dropper
Looks good when he when he walks, he is the subject of their talk

I know that this probably isn't how the song was supposed to be interpreted, but this is what it means to me...
Imagine a perfect guy. You know who he is but you can never reach him, hence the line 'he would be hard to chase, but good to catch' He might be some sort of celebrity, that's why he's 'the subject of their talk' His eyes 'make you melt' and you watch him hopelessly, knowing that he is with someone else. You can't describe him, all you know is what you've seen, because you might not have met him. All you can say about him is what you want him to be like. Your dream is that you will 'find him sitting on your doorstep' because that is your only hope of being with him for real. No matter what happens, 'You can tell that he'll be there [in your heart] for life.'
Sorry, my interpretation is a bit stupid and quite long. I hope this helps you to see this song from a new angle. Thanks for reading.

My interpretation of this song reminds me of my forbidden love. Looking in on the outside, knowing that he is the everything I want but can’t have.

I think this song is simply telling us that people sometimes are not who we think they are and so we try to picture the perfect person perhaps a lover in our imagination. We tend to add up things so the person becomes perfect and would stay with you for life unlike what happens in real life

This is about her bi ex boyfriend who runs away with another man
She is imagining the perfect man for her and she knows that man is a dream but she doesn't mind cause as a daydreamer, she enjoys with it, although it's not real. That's why she is such a daydreamer that for her that dream is very real. But she still has the hope of finding that man anywhere.
