Dusty Springfield – Daydreaming lyrics

(Neil Tennant / Chris Lowe)

(You gotta wake up)

You don't commit to me
You won't make a start
You don't tell me no
You haven't got the heart
You sit in a chair
Or you lie in bed
With a faraway stare
And a swollen head

Well, listen here my lover
I have had enough
And I can tell you brother
I could fall in love
With someone who
Looks a lot like you
But gets up and does
What he's thinking of

I can't wait another day
I can give and I can take
There's a choice you have to make

So many times things pass you by
Imagination running wild
You've got to start choosing right from wrong
Instead of daydreaming all day long

I want to catch a plane
To an open space
I want to feel the sun
Shining on my face
But time is short
And waiting is long
And my patience is exhausted
I'm just not that strong

I want to see the parade
You wanna watch tv
So we don't do either
It's insanity
You say there's plenty of time
And life is good
So you never make your mind up
Well you never could

I can ask you when or why
And you'll look up to the sky
The parade is marching by

So many times things pass you by
Imagination running wild
You've got to start choosing right from wrong
Instead of daydreaming all day long
Daydreaming, oh, oh, daydreaming, daydreaming

You gotta wake up, you gotta wake up

(Leave me alone I'm only dreaming)
You gotta wake up, you gotta wake up
(Leave me alone I'm only dreaming)
You gotta wake up, you gotta wake up
(I'm only dreaming), oh, oh

I can't wait another day
I can give and I can take
There's a choice you have to make, oh, oh

So many times things pass you by
Imagination running wild
You've got to start choosing right from wrong
Instead of daydreaming all day long

So many times things pass you by
Imagination running wild
You've gotta choose right from wrong
Instead of daydreaming all night long

(Daydreaming)
So many times
(Daydreaming)
Things pass you by
(Daydreaming)
You've gotta choose right from wrong
(Daydreaming)
All day long
All day long
