"In Dreams" lyrics - ROY ORBISON

"In Dreams"

A candy colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper,
"Go to sleep, everything is alright."

I close my eyes then I drift away
Into the magic night
I softly say a silent prayer
Like dreamers do
Then I fall asleep and dream my dreams of you

In dreams I walk with you
In dreams I talk to you
In dreams you're mine all the time
With you ever in dreams, in dreams

But just before the dawn
I awake and find you gone
I can't help it, I can't help it
If I cry
I remember that you said goodbye

It's too bad that all these things
Can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams, beautiful dreams
