Why do I have to dream of you when I don't want to dream a lie?
Why do I have to dream of you when I don't want to dream a lie?

There never was a better time
For trying to set the words to rhyme
Of when a golden love turns blue
And dreams of dreams that won't come true

Every night I call your name
We're still together just the same

A lonely room, an empty bed
It always seems that way
