Carole King – Can't You Be Real lyrics

By Gerry Goffin & Carole King

Long ago we had our dreams
And that was all that we needed
Then all at once we got to see
The cycles we repeated

Baby can't you be real
I said Baby can't you be real?

Anyone can look into your eyes
And tell you what you're missin'
It's been told to you many times before
But you refuse to listen

Baby can't you be real?
Oh Baby can't you be real?
I said Baby can't you be real?
Baby can't you be real?
