(Paul Kennerley)

When the sun goes down on the other side of town tonight
And the world is asleep dreamin' in the deep moonlight
I'll slip away in the shadows out of your life
You don't want' me anymore so I'll close the door when I leave
My bags are packed and I'll give you back your keys
You keep your ring and I'll keep your memory

But in my dreams at night... oh...oh
Everything will work out right
'Cause I'll still hold you tight... in my dreams

Well, it's hard to take when love breaks down and dies
But it's better to quit than to sit each nite and cry
I'd rather know the truth than to live thru a life of lies

But in my dreams at night... oh...oh
Everything will work out right
'Cause I'll still hold you tight... in my dreams

Maybe it's for the best to give this love of ours a rest
But I'll come runnin' back if you want me
Well, bye bye baby it seems that we're all thru
You sure know how make this little girl blue
When you say you don't want the things I can do for you

But in my dreams at night... oh...oh
Everything will work out right
'Cause I'll still hold you tight... in my dreams

In my dreams at night... oh...oh
Everything will work out right
'Cause I'll still hold you tight... in my dreams
