Once I had a dream
I could lean upon
Nothin's what it seems
It was already gone.

Dreams I shared with you
On our way back home
Watched it all come true
It was already gone.

I was waitin' for the sun to shine
But every day would bring the rain
I was down, but you changed my luck
And the dream was still the same.

I watched it fly away
Like a bird across the sky
Miles and miles and miles away
Yes, it's already gone.

I was waitin' for the sun to shine
But every day would bring the rain
I was down, but you changed my luck
And the dream was still the same.

I watched it fly away
Like a bird across the sky
Miles and miles and miles away
Yes, it's already gone.

(fade)
Yes, it's already gone.
Yes, it's already gone.
