Definition: Dream of a bright imaginary future enabling characters to escape the grey everyday routine. The number doesn't show the world the characters dream about (contrary to "dream and fantasy" numbers), they're in the present and think about something else. Clues are mostly in the lyrics. Does not include the romantic dream of an ideal partner --> "i sing about love"

Example: “It’s A New World” (A Star Is Born); “Somewhere” (West Side Story); “Maybe This Time” (Cabaret); "Over the Rainbow" (Wizard of Oz)
