Spendin all my money on phone cards
Waiting for my ship to come in
In from that ocean, come home to the sea harboring in me
I don't believe in four leaf clovers all the luck they're supposed to bring
I've used all my wild cards, but there's something I can do to get close to you

I've got dreams of love and I love you, I know you feel the same way too
I feel your spirit, when you need me and when your away
Some how somewhere I'll see you again,
But until then I've got dreams of loving you

Thinking about every little thing we did crazy
Sippin on that memory lane
That may never close it
Seven days of the week
I can drive in my sleep

'cause I've got dreams of love and I love you, I know you feel the same way too
I feel your spirit, when you need me and when your away
Some how somewhere I'll see you again,
But until then I've got dreams of loving you

Dreams I wish when I see you again
And I'll see you again pretty soon
I pray but until then I've got dreams
I've got dreams of love, and I love you, I know you feel the same way too
I feel your spirit, when you need me and when your away
Some how somewhere I'll see you again,
But until then I've got dreams of loving you
