What is the song “Wild Dreams” by Burnaboy ft Khalid all about?

I don’t know if the wild dream the artists are referring to is the “figurative one,” or the “frightening nightmare.”

Khalid’s “wild dream,” seems to be like a frightening nightmare, while, Burnaboy’s “wild dream,” seems to be like the “figurative one.”

View some lines below

Chorus (Khalid)

Woke up covered in sweat from havin’ these wild dreams (Wild dreams)

Bridge (Burna)

Don’t let them tell you, you too proud or your dreams are too big

Come from a place where you can’t even sleep

Talk less of even dream in it

But, we would find a way around it sha.

In the song “Wild dream,” by Burnaboy ft Khalid, the artists spur people to imagine a better life or anything they desire to be in the future regardless of how daunting or difficult the country they are living in makes it hard for people to achieve success or be what they desire to be in life. 

They have experienced such life, and are praying for strength to keep moving.

Some of Khalid’s lines mean “Rather than dream about what you want to be, you only have frightening nightmares due to the unfavorable condition of the country you are living in. He desires to wipe off unpleasant memories gotten from those nightmares.

Some of Burnaboy’s lines mean “He kept on believing in himself, and looked beyond the present. He looked forward to something bigger in the future. He achieved this by mostly denying himself a lot of things.

Intro/Chorus (Khalid)

I dey feel like steel water wey dey run deep

Because the life I dey live today never come cheap (The life that I am living never came cheap.)

I feel like it’s taken something from me

Life is a ride, I take the front seat

Let the most-high drive, He can’t go wrongly

Highs and lows, na lows dey won’t see

But those same lows na make the song sweet

Don’t let them tell you you too proud or your dreams are too big

You should humble yourself, humble your dreams

Remember everything you see today at some point in time started from a wild dream

Wild, wild, wild, wild, wild dreams

At the same time, wild dreams are dangerous to people

Wild, wild, wild, wild, wild dreams

Who can’t see further than what’s in front of them

Wild, wild, wild, wild, wild dreams

Remember, Martin Luther King had a dream and then he got shot

Wild, wild, wild, wild, wild dreams
