Dream – Roadtrip Ft. PmBata | Lyrics Meaning & Song Review


Clay (last name unknown) better known by his online presence as Dream or DreamWasTaken, is an American YouTuber and Minecraft speedrunner. However, in this year 2021, Dream seems to be diverting its attention to an avenue we didn’t see coming: music. On February 4, 2021, Dream released their debut single, titled “Roadtrip” featuring fellow American singer PmBata.

Dream gained popularity online with his Minecraft speedrun videos and later his Minecraft Manhunt series. He is also best known for his parkour skills in the Minecraft game. His main YouTube channel has over 17 million subscribers and his other accounts collectively have over 5.5 million subscribers. Dream’s first song was released on a brand new YouTube channel named “Dream Music”.

“Roadtrip” tells the story of life, common to all of us. Everyone changes and everything changes. The people closest to us could become strangers in a matter of days. Dream could refer to an ex-girlfriend from when he was younger and less known in the world, or just a close friend.

Meaning of “Roadtrip” lyrics and song review

On January 8, 2021, Dream posted a rather lengthy note about his ex-girlfriend. According to this note, she was a big part of Dream starting with YouTube and even creating its iconic logo. Although they had a short-lived loving and caring relationship, things didn’t go so well after their fallout. She slandered Dream in public and in private. However, Dream is keeping an open mind about it all and trying to navigate the choppy waters. In addition to his personal struggles, he was recently accused of cheating in one of his Minecraft speedrun records.

So when Dream sings “People change like the tides in the ocean” in “Roadtrip”, he could very well be singing about his ex-girlfriend from three years ago. Dream is 21 at the time of this song’s release in 2021. And the math adds up as the lyrics in the song indicate; “In this past life, we lived to be eighteen.”

Throughout the song, Dream takes an aimless ride in an old van on the roads. He remembers when there was someone special sitting next to him in the van. And those were good times. They had something special for the short time they were together.

Three years later, it almost feels like those memories are from a past life. These memories are a nice trip down memory lane, just as much as the one he’s taking in his van right now!

PmBata’s verse in the song has a very similar theme to Dream’s. He too shares an experience with a close partner who is no longer there with him. He admits that she pops into his memories from time to time. Fortunately, these are happy memories.

Although Dream’s skills in Minecraft have nothing to do with us ordinary people, his personal experiences sung in “Roadtrip” would be very relevant to many of us.

Do you think there will be a music video for “Roadtrip” starring Dream? He has yet to reveal his face, despite his massive online presence. What do you think?
