(Bayer Sager / Golde / Mayoff)

I surround myself with superficial things
Somethin' to toy with
They don't mean a thing
I got my share of secrets
A long time overdue
I got a world inside me
I'd better keep on running to

I dream on
I dream on
A fantasy to guide me
And hope to see me through
I dream on
I dream on
Do you wanna be a dreamer?
Be a dreamer
If you wanna be a dreamer
Be a dreamer
Come on, baby, be a dreamer, be a dreamer, oh, oh

Now, my friends all say I'm crazy
And I'm blowing every chance
'Til until I hear your sweet, sweet music
Nothin's gonna make me dance
'Cause I'm a dreamer and my eyes give me away
Oh, they're always sayin'
All the things I'd never say

I dream on
I dream on
A fantasy to guide me
And hope to see me through
I dream on
I dream on
Do you wanna be a dreamer?
Be a dreamer
If you wanna be a dreamer
(Be a dreamer)
Come on, baby, be a dreamer, be a dreamer, oh
Do you wanna be a dreamer?
(Be a dreamer)
If you wanna be a dreamer
(Be a dreamer)
Come on, baby, be a dreamer, (be a dreamer), oh, oh

I believe in magic
And in wishes coming true
Somethin' tells me, baby
That you believe it, too

I dream on
I dream on
A fantasy to guide me
And hope to see me through
I dream on
I dream on
Do you wanna be a dreamer?
(Be a dreamer)
If you wanna be a dreamer
(Be a dreamer)
Come on, baby, be a dreamer
(Be a dreamer)
Ooh, hoo
If you wanna be a dreamer
Be a dreamer
Be a dreamer
Oh, yeah
Do you wanna?
Do you wanna be a dreamer?
Ah, ha, be a dreamer
Yeah, be a dreamer, oh, ho
Do you wanna be a dreamer?
