Dreaming


When I met you in the restaurant
You could tell I was no debutante
You asked me what's my pleasure
A movie or a measure
I'll have a cup of tea
And I keep on my dreaming

Dreaming is free
Dreaming
Dreaming is free

I don't want to live on charity
Pleasure's real or is it fantasy
Real to real is living rarity
People stop and stare at me
But I just walk on by
And I keep on dreaming

Dreaming is free
Dreaming
Dreaming is free
 
Feet, feet, walking a two mile
Meet, meet, meet me at the turnstile
I never met him I'll never forget him

Dream, dream, even for a little while
Dream, dream, filling up an idle hour
Fade away, radiate

I sit by and watch the river flow
I sit by and watch the traffic go
Imagine something of your very own
Something you can have and hold
I'd build a road in gold
Just to have some dreaming

Dreaming is free
Dreaming
Dreaming is free
