I Can Only Dream

With your railway soul
The only girl I know
I have to dream a love affair

Like a vacant mess
That always hurts my flesh
I have to dream a love affair

Dream, I can only dream
When you’re not there

I’m doing time
For an emotional crime
I have to dream a love affair

She’s the sweetest girl
In a changing world
I have to dream a love affair

Dream, I can only dream
When you’re not there

With the money you need
And the clothes you wear
I have to dream a love affair
