I had a dream of you the other night dear
A dream I could not live in true life I fear
You talked with a friend of mine so lovingly
Oh God, oh God a crazy dream please let it be

   Dreams, dreams of you dear
   Tears, tears are so sincere
   Love, love that I can’t hide
   These dreams are breakin’ down all my pride

While music played he danced and held you oh so tight
The same way we did when our love was young and bright
Then he kissed you under lights that were so dim
I couldn’t stand to see you there alone with him

I realize a dream is only fantasy
But tell me why these dreams seem so real to me
Every night I have this same old misery
I guess it’s just because of all my jealousy
