Millions of girls float on their one quote
Living on their last hope, on their last hope

I live my life inside a dream
Only waking when I sleep
I would sell my sorry soul
If I could have it all

My life is a play
Is a play
Is a play
My life is a play
Is a play
Is a play

Yeah I've been living in the state of dreaming
Living in a make believe land
Living in the state of dreaming
Of dreaming
Of dreaming

All I really want is to be wonderful
People in this town they can be so cruel

I live my life inside a dream
Only waking when I sleep
If could sell my sorry soul
I would have it all

My life is a play
Is a play
Is a play
My life is a play
Is a play
Is a play

Yeah I've been living in the state of dreaming
Living in a make believe land
Living in the state of dreaming
Of dreaming
Of dreaming

If only you knew my dear
How I live my life in fear
If only you knew my dear
How I know my time is near

Yeah I've been living in the state of dreaming
Living in a make believe land
Living in the state of dreaming
Of dreaming
Of dreaming

Living in the state of dreaming
Living in a make believe land
Living in the state of dreaming
Of dreaming
Of dreaming

My life is a play
Is a play
Is a play
