In Dreams

In Dreams
(Roy Orbison)

A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night,
Just to sprinkle star dust and to whisper,
"Go to sleep, everything is all right."

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 to 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.
We're together 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.

Too bad it only seems
It only happens in my dreams,
Only in dreams,
In beautiful dreams.
