Cause I'm such a dreamer, a believer in a sense
These two lines bring to mind an old song from 1967, “Daydream Believer” by The Monkees.
Cheer up, sleepy Jean.
Oh, what can it mean.
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen.
A popular interpretation of the song is events after the marriage of a daydream believer and a homecoming queen. Their relationship is unconventional due to different social statuses, but their love gets them through hard times. Sampha could be referring to a relationship with a woman, or a “relationship” with the industry and one’s career.
Another point of reference might be The Dreamer/The Believer, the 2011 album by Common. Interesting that Sampha would drop the reference on Drake’s track, considering the beef war between Com and Drizzy.
