There was a time some time ago
When every sunrise meant a sunny day, oh a sunny day
But now when the morning light shines in
It only disturbs the dreamland where I lay, oh where I lay

I used to thank the lord when I'd wake
For life and love and the golden sky above me
But now I pray the stars will go on shinin', you see in my dreams you love me

Daybreak is a joyful time
Just listen to the songbird harmonies, oh the harmonies
But I wish the dawn would never come
I wish there was silence in the trees, oh the trees
If only I could stay asleep, at least I could pretend you're thinkin' of me
'cause nighttime is the one time I am happy, you see in my dreams

Chorus:
We climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us, we are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me, in my dreams

(solo)

I keep hopin' one day I'll awaken, and somehow she'll be lying by my side
And as I wonder if the dawn is really breakin'
She touches me and suddenly I'm alive

Chorus repeats 2x

Oho, in my dreams

    The lyrics really is so strong, even is intensified by the beat of the music, specifically the chorus of which the lyrics seems to be a statement of truism that when somebody with somebody are outside above watching the world below that maybe in another time (lost in time); may be outside of reality, we are free to love each other forever.

    When you love someone and that love is unrequited, all you have to do to ease the longing is to dream about him, dream being with him and dream to be loved by him.

    I never thought that there is a soul mate… i thought it was only in my imagination. But i finally saw my soul mate. I can feel his touch, kisses and love. Every time i touch him, there is something that i can’t explain the feeling of connection. Every time i kissed him, full of tension and excitement in me. Perhaps, that’s love, because i feels cared for and protected. I always wanted to see him, to show my feelings but it’s only “in my dreams. ”
