Roy Orbison – In Dreams lyrics

"In Dreams" by Roy Orbison

A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper:
"Go to sleep, everything is alright"

I close my eyes
Then I drift away
Into the magic night
I softly say
A silent prayer
Like dreamers do
Then I fall asleep
To dream my dreams of you

In dreams... I walk with you
In dreams... I talk to you
In dreams... Your mine

All of the time
We're together
In dreams... In dreams

But just before the dawn
I awake and find you gone
I can't help it... I can't help it
If I cry
I remember
That you said goodbye
To end all these things
And I'll be happy in my dreams
Only in dreams
In beautiful dreams
