Verse 1

When I was a child, the story would say
Somebody would sweep you off your feet someday.
That's what I hoped would happen with you,
more then you could know.
I wanted to tell you, that my heart's in your hands.
I prayed for the day that I would get the chance,
'N just when I worked up, the courage to try.
Much to my surprise,
you had somebody else, yeah yeah.
'Cos these feelings, I keep to myself.

Chorus

I may never get to hold you so tight,
I may never get to kiss you goodnight,
I may never get to look deep in your eyes,
or so it seems.
I always will be wishing you were mine,
I think about what could be all the time,
all the happiness that I could find.
Baby...a girl can dream.

Verse 2

From the moment I wake up, 'til I fall asleep,
I imagine you not with her, but with me.
Talking and laughing, sharing our dreams,
it's just a fantasy, 'cos you had somebody else,
'cos these feelings I keep to myself.

Chorus

I may never get to hold you so tight,
I may never get to kiss you goodnight,
I may never get to look deep in your eyes,
or so it seems.
I always will be wishing you were mine,
I think about what could be all the time,
all the happiness that I could find.
Baby...a girl can dream.

A girl can dream...it's true,
and to call you my own,
it's the sweetest dream known.

Chorus

I may never get to hold you so tight,
I may never get to kiss you goodnight,
I may never get to look deep in your eyes,
or so it seems.
I always will be wishing you were mine,
I think about what could be all the time,
all the happiness that I could find.
Baby...a girl can dream.

Ohh, a girl can dream.

(Hmm mm)
