Lyrics:

I can see a steeple, surrounded by people -
Oh how real it all starts to seem.
Just as the choir is singing, my alarm starts ringing.
It's the same old dream.

And then my thoughts inspire a scene by the fire,
In a cottage close by a stream.
I know it all by heart now - we're about to part now.
It's the same old dream.

If you but knew
How many times I pretend that I'm with you
I'm sure your heart would unbend.
You'd see me through
Until my dream had a happy ending

And I can picture clearly those things I love dearly -
In the center you reign supreme.
We kiss and I discover I'm a lonesome lover.
It's the same old dream

(Musical Interlude)

We kiss and I discover I'm a lonesome lover.
It's the same old dream.
