Oh, I know I'm only dreamin', 'cause I'll awake and you'll be gone.
And my tears will still be streamin' as my broken heart beats on.
Yes, I know I'm only dreamin', but I'll just keep dreamin' on.
I will dream about the pleasures that we shared in days gone by.
And I'll remember and I'll treasure every kiss and your kind eyes.
And I will dream that you still hold me in your arms as you did then.
And I'll recall each thing you told me hear your voice as I did when.
Yes, I know I'm only dreamin' but I'll dream and I'll pretend.
I'll be here and I'll be waiting, and I will dream of your return.
Some will say I'm being foolish, while some will say that I am just blind.
And that I won't face what the truth is, that you are no longer mine.
But I will dream you'll be returning some sweet day to their surprise.
And you will say your love's still burnin',
You'll dry these teardrops from my eyes.
Oh, I know I'm only dreamin', 'cause I'll awake and be alone.
And my tears will still be streamin', and you will still be just as gone.
Yes, I know I'm only dreamin', but I'll just keep dreamin' on.
Yes, I know I'm only dreamin'
