Lyrics

I was just thinking that Jocko's kind of…
A lot of people can be real father figures for me
I have such a desperation for that energy and that connection in my life that I will latch on to people or put them in a place where
Oh, I gotta tell you this
So, I saw my dad in a dream
When I was in Hawaii or in Maui
Sorry, when I was in Maui
And it was really crazy 'cause I hadn't seen him in 20 years
Even in a vision
You know, and I had an adult vision and I saw him
You know, and I saw him and it was crazy, we were at a..., it was kind of confusing
It was a dream, you know?
And Robert De Niro was there and Matthew McConaughey was there
And we were in Maui
My dad was in one room eating at a table and Matthew McConaughey and Robert De Niro were in another room
And my dad wanted to come and meet Matthew McConaughey, but he didn't want to meet Robert De Niro
And so I was trying to, like, mediate between the two of 'em
And finally my dad and Matthew McConaughey got to meet each other, which doesn't mean anything, but it was just interesting to see my father. I hadn't seen him

[Chorus]
I saw my dad in a dream
I saw my dad in a dream
I hadn't seen him in 20 years
Even in a vision
I saw my dad in a dream
I saw my dad in a dream
I hadn't seen him in 20 years
Even in a vision

You know, I'd seen him in pictures and I'd seen him in just, you know, imagination what, what his
What he looked like or something, but I hadn't seen him really
And it made me think that my dad lives in Hawaii or something, you know?
Like I was like, oh, is this where he's been?
And it made me think, well of course this is where he's been
This is where I would be
It is stunning but yeah, I got to see my dad, man, I got to see him, it was
I just didn't know
I just didn't know
I didn't know that he's been in Hawaii or been, you know, that he's been there
And he was healthy
He was healthier looking than I'd ever seen him in my whole life, that's what's wild
He was kind of thicker, he been eating
His hair was darker
And um, he was laughing, man, he was laughing
He was kind of being cool
Kinda a little bit play it cool or be cool I guess, I don't know
I mean, he, you know
I mean, he lives in that world in the subconscious or in dream world, so, you know
I have no idea what his life is like there
He may drive a Corvette, I don't know, I didn't see
You know, the parking lot or anything like that
I just saw just him

[Chorus]
I saw my dad in a dream
I saw my dad in a dream
I hadn't seen him in 20 years
Even in a vision
I saw my dad in a dream
I saw my dad in a dream
I hadn't seen him in 20 years
Even in a vision

[Chorus by Akira The Don]
I saw my dad in a dream
I saw my dad in a dream
I hadn't seen him in 20 years
Even in a vision
I saw my dad in a dream
I saw my dad in a dream
I hadn't seen him in 20 years
Even in a vision

And man, right when I got up
I've just been on this kick where I've just been trying to stay more motivated and like
When it's time to get up it's time to get up
And I need to do things, and I want to have more experiences in my life
You know, recently I've just been realizing, like, I do a lot of stuff but it's a lot of the same things
And I'm not really having a lot of new experiences
And so I want to have a little bit more of that
Man, I wish I'da just laid back down and try to go right back and see him
You know, wherever he was, but it's just so funny, man
I've slept in, you know, in the past 20 years I've probably fallen asleep in 42 states
In 15 or 20 or 30 uh, I don't know, countries
And not once did I see my father and then bam
I'm in Maui and there he is
