Lyrics
I just want to be happy
To love and be loved by you
But the only time I'm happy
Is when I dream of you each night
'Cause that's the only time
You hold me tight in my dreams
Is the only time your love is mine.
Each time you're near
Something happens to my heart
You make you feel so unwanted dear
And it pains my poor heart
If I could feel your sweet caress
Then I'd know true happiness.
But the only time I'm happy
Is when I dream of you each night
'Cause that's the only time
You hold me tight in my dreams
Is the only time your love is mine.
To me you'll never have
Nothing kind or sweet to say
Than my whole day
To seem too sadly waste away
But when the day ends
All my happiness begins.
But the only time I'm happy
Is when I dream of you each night
'Cause that's the only time
You hold me tightly in my dreams
Is the only time your love is mine.
Life pasts each day
Leaving loneliness in my heart
You make you feel so unneeded
And it hurts my poor heart
But there's nothing I'd rather do
Than to be happy loving you.
But the only time I'm happy
Is when I dream of you each night
'Cause that's the only time
You hold me tightly in my dreams
Is the only time your love is mine.
