Donít light a candle for my remorse
Iíll chase my dreams on endless course
And never wonder where they alight
But dream your fingertips tonight

Through fields of fresh cut flowers mourn
That I should wake and thus stillborn
And for every fallen daffodil
I wish my dreams would lay me still

Missing pieces found at last
Now I know what might have passed
Now I see whatís black and white
But blessed with all the colors bright

I love a nightmare to bathe in sweat
I love a sin I canít regret
A nursery rhyme thatís out of whack
Point your finger and three point back

I love you and you love me
I love a dream where Iím still free
Dreams are my imaginary friends
Dreams and I love to pretend


----Only in dreams
Beautiful dreams
Roy Orbison

In dreams I talk with you
In dreams you're mine

In beautiful Dreams......."
