Barry Manilow – This Can't Be Real lyrics

(duet with Olivia Newton-John)

Olivia:
This can't be real
As long as I love you
How could this ever be real
As long as you're there?
Help me to feel
The nightmare's behind me
That your love will find me
Anywhere

Barry:
Love is what's true
The rest is illusion
What I've discovered with you
No one can steal

Both:
The truth isn't what it seems
The truth is our wildest dreams
Real was your kiss
But as for this
This can't be real

Barry:
This can't be real
So why do I love you
I know that this can't be real
Still you are there
You aren't real
But somehow you've found me
To haunt and surround me
You're everywhere

Both:
This isn't true
It's only illusion
What I've discovered with you
Is just an ideal

Barry:
This must be a dream, I know
So why do I want you so?
Is it because

Olivia:
Only because
This can't be real?

Barry:
This can't be real

Both:
Love is what's true
The rest is illusion
What I've discovered with you

Olivia:
No one can steal

Barry:
No one can steal

Both:
The truth isn't what it seems
The truth is our wildest dreams

Barry:
This must be a dream, I know

Olivia:
So why do I want you so?
Real was your kiss

Barry:
Is it because

Olivia:
Oh, but as for this

Barry:
Only because

Both:
This can't be real
This can't be real
This can't be real
