Crowded House - Don't Dream It's Over - Lyrics Meaning

Don't Dream It's Over by Crowded House was released in 1987 and reached number 2 in the US charts and number 27 in the UK charts.

The lead singer of crowded house, Neil Finn, wrote this song after having a really bad fight with his wife.

This is a love song and the lyrics explain that material things don't really matter but that love is the centre of everything.

The singer describes himself towing his car which has obviously broken down and has holes in the roof so he can't sleep in it.

The papers and television are full of bad news and everything is going wrong but at the end of the day he still has the woman he loves, so nothing else really matters.

All of the bad news in the world, and whatever happens between then, nothing will drive them apart and the thought of them making up is what is driving him on.
