in a fantasy; in a dream

literally this means "in a fantasy", or "in an imagining"

the Italian verb "fantasticare" means "to dream"

I would translate this idiomatically as "in a dream", as in "I saw you in a dream"

Being a song, I think that you could simply say: "Fancy", or "in a fancy mood"
or also "daydreaming", depending on the whole text.
Hope this helps.

Fantasticare is more like daydreaming or imagining than dreaming. In English, 'fantasy' implies something fantastic or impossible, but 'fantasia' does not necessarily do this. If you know to whom the phrase refers, (i.e., the speaker, or the person s/he is addressing) this phrase may work best.
