Only a dream
That I had
In the night

Only a dream
But it felt
So right

Well i was down there
In the moonlight
I was holding you tight

But it was only a dream
Only a dream

Only a dream
That knocks me off my feet

Only a dream
Have you dancing
In the street

And that big band
Keeps on playing
Joe henry's retreat

But only a dream
Only in my dream

Only a dream
But somebody tried to knock me down

Only a dream
Keeps on hanging around

Only a dream
We're rolling in the snow

Only a dream
We just couldn't let go

I sit outside your window
Just like romeo
But it's only a dream
Yes, only a dream

But someone tries to knock me down
To the ground
But it was only a dream
But it's just a dream
Still hanging around.
