It’s better to have sweet dreams about her and forget it all in the morning
It’s better to have sweet dreams about her and forget it all in the morning

Dreams
They fade, disappear in the light
They’re lost when you open your eyes
She’s somewhere out there
Out of reach and out of sight

It’s sweeter to stay true to what we knew and to live in the world without her
It’s sweeter to stay true to what we knew and to live in the world without her

Dreams
When you wake, disappear in the light
They’re lost when you open your eyes
She’s somewhere out there
Out of reach and out of sight

Somewhere out there
Walking in this neighbourhood
Leading our parallel, never-touching lives
Lives that seem as ephemeral and fleeting as our dreams

Dreams
They fade, disappear in the light
They’re lost when you open your eyes
She’s somewhere out there
Out of reach and out of sight

It’s better to have sweet dreams about her and forget it all in the morning
It’s better to have sweet dreams about her and forget it all in the morning
