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 adore you?
Although we are oceans apart
I can't make you open your heart
But I can dream, can't I?
