I didn't want to do it but I got too lonely
I know it's awful hard to try to make love long distance
Though it was only my imagination
It's just a fantasy
It's just a fantasy
But sometimes a fantasy

Why does it only seem to hit me in the middle of the night
I don't want to deal with outside action

It's not the real thing
It's not the real thing
Is all you need
Sure it would be better if I had you here to hold me
I'm sure there's many times you've wanted me to hear your secrets
Anytime you want to tell them to me
It's just a fantasy
It's just a fantasy
But sometimes a fantasy
It's just a fantasy
It's just a fantasy
