In Reverie is the fourth studio album by the American rock band Saves the Day, released through DreamWorks Records on September 16, 2003.

In Reverie showed the band continuing to explore even more than the sounds on Stay What You Are. The music became far more musically sophisticated and mellow in every aspect. Conley's voice also changed, becoming much softer and nasal in timbre. In Reverie is Saves the Day's highest-charting album to date, reaching number 27 on the Billboard 200 album chart in 2003.[10] The album was a commercial disappointment for the band and would soon change the bands direction in their next two albums Sound the Alarm and Under the Boards. Within weeks of the album's release, DreamWorks was absorbed by Interscope Records and not long after, Saves the Day were dropped from the label.[11]
