Carpenters – Those Good Old Dreams lyrics

As a child I was known for make-believing

All alone I created fantasies

As I grew people called it self-deceiving

But my heart helped me hold the memories

As I walk through the world I find around me

Something new, yet familiar's in the air

I feel it ev'rywhere

Like a child's eyes

On a Christmas night

I'm lookin' at you now

Finding answers to my prayers

(*) It's a new day for those good old dreams

One by one it seems they're comin' true

Here's the morning that my heart had seen

Here's the morning that just had to come through

Same old stage but what a change of scene

No more dark horizons, only blue

It's a new day for those good old dreams

All my life I dreamed of lovin' you

You're a spark of a long forgotten fire

You're a touch of a slowly growing wind

You're a taste of the ever-changing seasons

Telling me there are some things that don't end

We have left all the darkness far behind us

All those hopes that we held along the way

Have made it to this day

Like an old love song

Gone for much too long

You hear it once again

Ant it carries you away

Repeat (*)

It's a new day for those good old dreams

And It's all because of you
