When I Dream
Crystal Gayle
Written by Sandy Mason Theoret

Peaked at # 84 on the Pop chart but # 3 on the Country chart in 1979

I could have a mansion that is higher than the trees
I could have all the gifts I want and never ask please
I could fly to Paris, oh, it's at my beck and call
Why do I go through life with nothing at all?

But when I dream, I dream of you
Maybe someday you will come true

I can be the singer or the clown in every room
I can even call someone to take me to the moon
I can put my makeup on and drive the men insane
I can go to bed alone and never know his name

But when I dream, I dream of you
Maybe someday you will come true

But when I dream, I dream of you
Maybe someday you will come true

    This is one of my favorite of crystal gayle's truly incredible songs. As a freelance writer specializing in country legends, i interviewed loretta lynn in phoenix, but have never met crystal gayle -- a true disappointment. This song turns me inside out, over and over. To ms. Gayle, whom i have never met, thanks. Geno marcello
