Daniel Bedingfield – The Way Dreams Are lyrics

I could almost feel your breath
I was that close to you
I could have picked your pocket if I'd wanted to
It was all to good to be true, all to good to be true
I got that far, 'cause that's the way dreams are

I could hear a guitar playing some old romantic tune
You said why don't you stay and I said yes too soon
I was almost over the moon, almost over the moon
I got that far 'cause that's the way dreams are

Don't wanna wake up and find there's nobody, nobody waking with me
I wanna spend my time with somebody, somebody like, easy and free
I was almost there in your arms, almost there in your arms
I got that far 'cause that's the way dreams are

We made plans and we made love
We said what lovers say
Swore we'd do it all again another day
I could feel you slipping away, feel you slipping away
I got that far 'cause that's the way
Dreams are
