Dreaming of oneself singing a song can be viewed as an unconscious manifestation of the ego's desire for self-expression, a Freudian concept known as cathexis.

Somewhat similarly: The song, in this context, may symbolize the id's unfulfilled desires or the superego's moralistic demands. Singing out of tune might suggest internal discord, a conflict between the id, ego, and superego. Conversely, a dream of another person performing a song could be a projection of the dreamer's feelings towards the performer. The song's nature may reflect the dreamer's perception of their relationship. A pleasant song could signify admiration, while a melancholic one might indicate unresolved issues. The lyrics could be the unconscious mind's attempt to communicate a latent message.
