My dreams tell it like it was but my eyes see it like it is.

Seems like only yesterday when I had everything
But today I can't face the hurt tomorrow bring
For reality and yesterday is all there is
My dreams tell it like it was but my eyes see it like it is.

All I ever wanted in my life was you
Now there's nothing left worth looking forward to
Except the past that's full of broken promises
My dreams tell it like it was but my eyes see it like it is.

--- Instrumental ---

I pretend your arms are holding me so tenderly
And each embrace I've locked away in memory
For only in my dreams your love brings happiness
My dreams tell it like it was but my eyes see it like it is.

All I ever wanted in my life was you
Now there's nothing left worth looking forward to
Except the past that's full of broken promises
My dreams tell it like it was but my eyes see it like it is...
