I adore the dream imagery in the song. We've all had to be away from loved ones from time to time, and Ms. Hawkins manages to capture the optimistic melancholy of that feeling. According to Wikipedia, she thought of the good memories of her father (who had passed away) while writing the song.
It's a pretty song that I'm happy to hear again and again.
