Love that runs away from me
Dreams that just won't let me be
Blues that keep on bothering me
Chains that just won't set me free

Too far away from you and all your charms
Just out of reach of my two empty arms

Each night in dreams I see your face
Memories time cannot erase
Then I awake and find you gone
I'm so blue and all alone

So far away from lips so sweet and warm
Just out of reach of my two empty arms

Oh honey, you know, what lonesome feeling that I have all the time
It's just knowing that I know you'll never be mine
And the dreams that always keeps on hurtin' me in my sleep
I know they're only vows that you and I could never keep

Too far away from lips so sweet and warm
Just out of reach of my two empty arms
Just out of reach of my two empty arms
