Dreamin' was the Irish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1995 in Dublin performed by Eddie Friel.

The song is a ballad, with Friel singing about the dream he is having and how free he feels in it before he awakes.

The song was performed second on the night, following Poland and preceding Germany. At the close of voting, it had received 44 points, placing 14th in a field of 23. This result was something of a surprise, as the country had won the previous 3 Contests (and would in fact go on to win the next one).


Dreamin' on a silver sea of moonlight
Magic fills the night
Melodies alight, when I'm dreamin'

Dreamin' how I love this nowhere feelin'
Round and round I go
Shadows soft and low, when I'm dreamin'

You can sail on any ocean
Dream an easy melody
Moonlight magic shines so gently
Moonlight magic harmony

Night time slips away in silence
And daylight steals across my silver sea
And goodbye dreamin' in the moonlight
Sleepy wake up to reality

La la la
La la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la
Underneath the stars, dreamin'

Faraway a blue horizon
Driftin' on the midnight sea
Moonlight magic shines so gently
Moonlight magic harmony

(La la la la la la la la la la la)
Sleepy wake up to reality


  • One of the backing vocalists was singer Eamonn Toal, who would go on to represent the country in Stockholm five years later.
