Why do I have to dream of you when I don't want to dream a lie?
Why do I have to dream of you when I don't want to dream a lie?
There never was a better time for trying to set the words to rhyme
(Why do I have to dream of you when I don't want to dream a lie? )
Of when a golden love turns blue and dreams of dreams that won't come true
(Why do I have to dream of you when I don't want to dream a lie? )
Every night I call your name, we're still together just the same
(Why do I have to dream of you when I don't want to dream a lie? )
The mornin' sun, I raise my head, a lonely room, an empty bed
(Why do I have to dream of you when I don't want to dream a lie? )
It always seems that way, yes it always seems that way
It always seems that way, yes it always seems that way

There never was a better time for trying to set the words to rhyme
(Why do I have to dream of you when I don't want to dream a lie? )
Of when a golden love turns blue and dreams of dreams that won't come true
Every night I call your name, we're still together just the same
(Why do I have to dream of you when I don't want to dream a lie? )
The mornin' sun, I raise my head, a lonely room, an empty bed
It always seems that way, yes it always seems that way
It always seems that way, yes it always seems that way
It always seems that way, yes it always seems that way
It always seems that way (Always seems that way), yes it always seems that way (Seems that way)
It always seems that way (Always seems that way), yes it always seems that way (Always seems that way)
It always seems that way, yes it always seems that way
