"Dreaming" is the third single from Scribe's debut album, The Crusader. In New Zealand, it was released as a double A-side with "So Nice". Lyrically, the song is about Scribe's childhood aspirations. It had commercial success in New Zealand and Australia, appearing on the singles charts of both countries, and topping the latter.
According to Russell Baillie from The New Zealand Herald, the production of "Dreaming" by P-Money gives the song "a mix of askew soul-sweetness". "Dreaming" is about Scribe's childhood ambitions, which gives it an "autobiographical out-from-under theme...without sounding cliched or tryhard".
The music video for "Dreaming" was directed by Chris Graham. Funding was provided by New Zealand On Air. It opens with shots of clouds moving across the sky in a time-lapse style, followed by Scribe writing a song, and later recording it. He then raps with friends in an urban area. The video is interspersed with childhood pictures of Scribe and others.
"Dreaming"/"So Nice" debuted on the New Zealand Singles Chart at number forty-eight, rising to the top spot five weeks later. The song spent one week at number one, and slipped out of the chart after a total of twenty-one weeks.
In Australia, "Dreaming" debuted at number twenty-four on the Australian Singles Chart. It later peaked at number twenty-three, before falling off the chart after twelve weeks.
