De Amerikaanse rapper Cornell Haynes begint in 1993 bij het hiphop-collectief St Lunatics. In 2000 krijgt Nelly een solo-platencontract. Vrij snel daarna is ook zijn debuutalbum Country Gammar een feit. De titeltrack is zijn eerste hit in de Top 40.

In de zomer van 2001 staat hij met Ride Wit’ Me voor het eerst in de top 5. Op die single is ook City Spud te horen – één van de rappers uit St Lunatics. In 2002 werkt Nelly samen met Kelly Rowland. Het resultaat van die samenwerking is Dilemma, dat zeven weken op nummer 1 staat. In 2004 staat My Place op de tweede plaats. In 2010 is Just A Dream zijn zesde top 10-hit.

In 2014 is hij te horen op 4x4 van Miley Cyrus. In 2016 komt hij in de Tipparade via Millionaire, zijn samenwerking met Cash Cash en Digital Farm Animals.


Songtekst

I was thinkin' 'bout her, thinkin' 'bout me
Thinkin' 'bout us, what we gonna be
Opened my eyes, yeah
It was only just a dream

So I traveled back down that road
Wish she'd come back, no one knows
I realized, yeah
It was only just a dream

I was at the top and now it's like I'm in the basement
Number one spot, now she found her a replacement
I swear now, I can't take it
Knowing somebody's got my baby

And now you ain't around, baby, I can't think
I should've put it down, should've got that ring
'Cause I can still feel it in the air
See her pretty face, run my fingers through her hair

My lover, my life
My shorty, my wife
She left me, I'm tight
'Cause I knew that it just ain't right

I was thinkin' 'bout her, thinkin' 'bout me
Thinkin' 'bout us, what we gonna be
Opened my eyes, yeah
It was only just a dream

So I traveled back down that road
Wish she'd come back, no one knows
I realized, yeah
It was only just a dream

When I be ridin', man, I swear I see her face at every turn
Tryin' to get my Usher on but I can't let it burn
And I just hope that she know that she the only one I yearn
For, moreover, I miss her, when will I learn?

Didn't give her all my love, guess now I got my payback
Now I'm in the club, thinkin' all about my baby
Hey, she was so easy to love
But wait, I guess that love wasn't enough

I'm goin' through it every time that I'm alone
And now I miss her and wishin' she'd pick up the phone
But she made the decision that she wanted to move on
'Cause I was wrong

I was thinkin' 'bout her, thinkin' 'bout me
Thinkin' 'bout us, what we gonna be
Opened my eyes, yeah
It was only just a dream

So I traveled back down that road
Wish she'd come back, no one knows
I realized, yeah
It was only just a dream

If you ever loved somebody, put your hands up
If you ever loved somebody, put your hands up
And now they gone and you wishin'
You could give them everything

Said if you ever loved somebody, put your hands up
If you ever loved somebody, put your hands up
And now they gone and you wishin'
You could give them everything

I was thinkin' 'bout her, thinkin' 'bout me
Thinkin' 'bout us, what we gonna be
Opened my eyes, yeah
It was only just a dream

So I traveled back down that road
Wish she'd come back, no one knows
I realized, yeah
It was only just a dream

I was thinkin' 'bout her, thinkin' 'bout me
Thinkin' 'bout us, what we gonna be
Opened my eyes, yeah
It was only just a dream

So I traveled back down that road
Wish she'd come back, no one knows
I realized, yeah
It was only just a dream
