Well it started out just like a dream
And like a dream I knew that what we had,
'cause I was lookin' for a,
Lifetime lover and,
Would have to end
You were lookin' for a friend
After all your night time lovers had gone,
Someone to be there
Someone who knew the way
The way they came
And helped to play your daytime game

It's not the same
Well I started out pretending that I'd,
Come to mean enough to you to make,
Then I came to realize that
You want to change
There was just too much of you you'd have,
To rearrange
And I couldn't bear to wait around
For all your night time lovers to go,
The way they came
To have to play your daytime games
And it came to hurt too much for me
No one's to blame

And like a dream I knew that what we had,
Well it started out just like a dream
Would have to end
Lifetime lover and,
You were lookin' for a friend
'cause I was lookin' for a,
Lifetime lover and,
I was lookin' for a,
You were lookin' for a friend
