Mike Oldfield – No Dream lyrics

An empty chair,
Is someone sitting there?
Footsteps on the ground.
Can you hear that sound?
Like a wild goose crying
On a lonely wind.
Whispering leaves
In the branches that bend.


[ chorus 1 ]

This ain't no dream, babe.
Alone in the night.
Turn on the light, this ain't no dream.
This is no dream.
You didn't read this is no book.
Go take a look, this ain't no dream.


A restless flame,
Someone calls your name.
Through the empty hall,
Casting shadows on the wall.
In the sound of emptiness,
Isolation.
Nowhere left to run,
Now the time has come.


[ repeat chorus 1 ]

An open door,
Glass all on the floor.
Hands have turned to white
In the cold breeze of the night.
There's a face at the window.
Someone who you know
Or who you used to be.
Could that somebody be me?


[ chorus 2 ]

Dream, babe,
Alone in the night.
Turn on the light, this ain't no dream.
This is no dream.
This ain't no book.
Go take a look, this ain't no dream.


[ repeat chorus 2 ]

[ repeat chorus 2 ]

Dream, babe.
Dream, babe.
This ain't no dream.
Go take a look!
Dream, babe.
Dream, babe.


[ repeat chorus 2 ]
