As we eye the blue horizon's bend, earth and sky appear to meet end to end.
But it's mearly an illusion, like your heart and mine, there is no sweet conclusion.
I can see no matter how near you'll be, you"ll never belong to me.
But I can dream can't I?
Can't I pretend that I'm locked in the bend of you embrace?
For dreams are just like wine, and I'm drunk with mine.
I'm aware, my heart is a sad affair.
There's much disillusion there.
But I can dream can't I?
Can't I adore you although we are oceans apart.
I can't make you open your heart, but I can dream can't I.

These words of yours were sung before...

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Fred. Oh, and the lyrics were written by Irving Kahal & Sammy Fain. The (superb!) artist who sang it last (I think it was a re-make from a much earlier release) was Karen Carpenter. Be still my fluttering heart!

tacojen, I would very much appreciate it if you would simply find another web site to post "your" work. I have stuff plastered all over the main site about respecting other people's copyrights, because I really do take it seriously. Guess I'll have to put up a couple of signs over here, too...
