I was just a stand-in
Someone love abandoned - not the leading man
But my heart yelled "Action"
What does "fall in love" mean?
We rehearsed the Love Scene unaware of this
Till we tried The Kiss and
Now... now you're in my dreams
Love was such a mystery
Love was ancient history - pleasure chased with pain
Till you whispered my name
In the soundstage moonlight
We could not say goodnight - unaccustomed to
Happiness so new and
Now... now you're in my dreams
Now the close-up me and you
And every old cliche rings true
The Samba begins
Fate to the winds
First it smolders then it burns, you
Pass the point of no return, do
Lovers stay in love by learning
How to leave the world at the door and live
Live inside their dreams?
