    Talking The song " Way back into love "

    Hi all

    I think " Way back into love" that Hugh Grant performed is very beautiful and popular song! And I like its lyric too but there's smth I don't understand is the sentence:
    " I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away - Just in case I ever need em again someday"
    Could anyone tell me what "em" means??

    It's short for "them" -- the hopes and dreams.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
