As we eye

The blue horizon's bend

Earth and sky

Appear to meet and end

But it's merely an illusion

Like your heart and mine

There is no sweet conclusion



I can see

No matter how near you'll be

You'll never belong to me

But I can dream

Can't I

Can't I pretend

That I'm locked in the bend

Of your embrace

For dreams

Are just like wine,

And I am drunk

With mine



(*) I'm aware

My heart is a sad affair

There's much disillusion there

But I can dream

Can't I



(**) Can't I adore you

Although we are oceans apart

I can't make you open your heart

But I can dream

Can't I

Can't I pretend

That I'm locked in the bend

Of your embrace

For dreams

Are just like wine,

And I am drunk

With mine



Repeat (*)

Repeat (**)
