When I met you in the restaurant you could tell I was no debutante You asked me what's my pleasure, "A movie or a measure"? I'll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreamin' Dreamin' is free Dreamin', dreaming is free
I don't want to live on charity Pleasure's real or is it fantasy? Reel to reel is living verite People stop and stare at me, we just walk on by We just keep on dreamin'
Beat feet, walking a two-mile Meet me, meet me at the turnstile I never met him, I'll never forget him Dream dream, even for a little while Dream dream, filling up an idle hour Fade away, radiate
I sit by and watch the river flow I sit by and watch the traffic go Imagine something of your very own, something you can have and hold I'd build a road in gold just to have some dreamin' Dreamin' is free Dreamin', dreamin' is free
Dreamin', dreamin' is free Dreamin', dreamin' is free

Lionheart from Newport Richey Florida.Dreaming could be a mind dream happening in yr mind. Well you know dreaming is free. The music sorta gets yr mind to drift, then the words make u dream in another direction.
Mark from Swindon UkThis song is based on the film "Brief Encounter" .
AnonymousMate, ‘measure’ just means a shot. Is why she chooses a cup of tea
Alex from London This was a live take, movie or a measure is clearly an offer of movie or a drink. Open-ended enough, measure is from the days of spirits measured out ..... But said awesome drumming! Long live Keith!
Marc from UdmurtiyaHaving played music in school for 9 years, I took "...movie or a measure..." to be that she was asked to a film or to a music show, concert, live jazz bar or dance hall etc. ...something with music.
Steve from OttawaThe pounding drums of Dreaming make it almost unique. A fabulous song. The video is a scream, with a bunch of embarrassed new wavers sitting in a wall.
