(ALL I CAN DO IS) DREAM YOU

Original Roy Orbison version


I've been away from you for so long
Still every time I think of us I get blue
But all I can do is dream you

I close my eyes, and love so warm and tender, feel you touching me
I close my eyes, I don't even have to try, it comes so easily

I don't know why I ever let us drift apart, but look who's sorry now
'Cause every time I wake up and you're not around, it only brings me down

Oh baby, all I can do is dream you, all I can do is dream you
Oh baby, all I can do is dream you, all I can do is dream you
Here I go dreaming you

Every day I pray that somewhere down the line we will meet again
I'll find a way to get you back somehow, but baby until then

Oh baby, all I can do is dream you, all I can do is dream you
(Na na na na, na na na na, na na na na, na na na na)
Yeah, all I can do is dream you, all I can do is dream you
(Na na na na, na na na na, na na na na, na na na na)
All I can do is dream you, all I can do is dream you
(Na na na na, na na na na, na na na na, na na na na)
Whoaaa, all I can do is dream you, all I can do is dream you
(Na na na na, na na na na, na na na na, na na na na)
(Na na na na, na na na na, na na na na, na na na na)
All I can do is dream you, all I can do is dream you
(Na na na na, na na na na, na na na na, na na na na)
Yeah baby, all...[fades out]
