I can't comprehend what a singer/writer means singing this song. Would anyone explain 'Do' for what thing used?

For example:

Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing

    The sweetest dream will never suffice. That is, the dream, no matter how sweet it may be, will never be the same as having you here beside me.

"Do" here means "be enough". so you can translate the lyrics as :

Cause even when I dream of you, the sweetest dream will never be enough

the reason "do" was used here is so that the lyrics would rhyme.

"Do" means it won't be enough; in your dreams you can get the impossible; the sweetest dream would be a dream where you get everything you want; but just dreaming it will never be enough for them because it's just a dream you'll wake up from and it'll be done with; so even the sweetest dream won't be enough because you want it in reality.
