Duffy – Distant Dreamer lyrics

Although you
Think I cope
My head is filled
With hope
Of some place
Other than here

Although you
Think I smile
Inside all the while
I'm wondering
About my destiny

I'm thinking about
All the things
I'd like to do
In my life

I'm a dreamer
A distant dreamer
Dreaming for hope
From today

Even when you
See me frown
My heart
Won't let me down
Because I know
There's better things
To come
(Woah, yeah)

And when life
Gets tough
I feel
I've had enough
I hold on to
A distant star

I'm thinking about
All the things
I'd like to do
In my life

(Chorus 2x)

I'm a dreamer

Oooooooh (3x)


I'm a dreamer

Oooooooh (3x)

I'm a dreamer
