The meaning of "Dream" in various phrases and sentences

Probablemente intentaron decir: "sweet dreams", dulces sueños.
Q: What does I only dream of you. mean?
A: It basically means that this person is the only person you are thinking of, 99% in an affectionate/loving manner.
Also from what I understand, you said, sweet dreams and you got the reply I only dream of you. I would say that person was flirting. You say sweet dreams and the person answer I only dream of you, so you are that person's sweet thing.
Q: What does where dreams come true mean?
A: "Where" here is an empty location. It's a generic location. "Where dreams come true" means, "A place that dreams come true."
Q: What does What dreams are made of. mean?
A: It is actually based from Shakespeare's "The Tempest", with the original line is "As dreams are made on". The whole portion of the quote is

"We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep."

Some ways to look at this" "We live, then we die" or "We are here, then we are gone without a trace".
I guess it makes more sense when you have it in context to the play.

So in the end, "what dreams are made of" is that which we imagine or fantasize about. It's that wish that we can only see in our dreams.
Q: What does And I wondered, what made my dreams so easy to dismiss? Granted, my dreams are shy, becasue they're Canadian.(Laughter) mean?
A: (Edited the answer below – I was looking through questions from Japanese speakers earlier and originally included Japanese in my response. Since I just noticed you're native language is Korean, I removed the Japanese. Sorry if that caused any confusion!)

Canadian can mean something from or of Canada or it can simply mean a person from Canada.

In this case, I think the speaker is probably a Canadian and since they are Canadian, any dreams they have are also Canadian.

What is funny here is that Canadians are often described as being extremely polite and afraid of offending people. That is, they are portrayed as timid. For example, in America, a joke about Canadians is that they will apologize for anything, even if they aren't at fault.

So since the speaker's dreams are Canadian, their dreams also too timid - and this is inherently because the dreams are Canadian.
