Lover's Dream (Vocal)


Lover's Dream
© 2013, John Gerard Macchietto

Verse 1: What can I tell you that you don't already know?
It seems my love for you will only grow and grow --
Why can't you stay with me every moment of the day?
I don't know why it is I'm feeling quite this way.

Verse 2: You know my heart is yours; be careful with it please
I'm not one to wear my feelings loosely on my sleeve --
I accept that you've become the exception to the rule
I don't know why it is I'm such a loving fool.

(Instrumental) -- humming

Verse 3: Loneliness is all around -- it hurts to be alone
But to you have you in my life can comfort this tombstone --
Can't you see your love is crucial for my sanity?
I will tell the world our love needs no apology.

Verse 4: When I sleep alone at night you're always on my mind
And when I awake it's like you're still there by my side --
In between the two of those I'm always there with you
For I'm always dreaming that our romance will come true.
