  • I didn't mean to let you down
    I grabbed for your hand but you took it back
    Trying hard not to let feelings show
    Will only hurt you in the future when the
    Cracks in your skin start to show

    Paint a picture of an apple in a tree
    Is that all that's there through the thicket of the leaves?
    Yes, yes now you see
    The bird flying out why don't you jump and see where he leads

    Our love was just a dream, just a dream
    With all my heart I gave you everything, everything
    Oh and you know
    That it all goes around and round
    'Cause you tumbled me down

    Troubles seem to get to you
    Brush them off, they're only worries, push on through
    Hear the heart that beats for your soul
    He who has nothing, should not complain
    We all have something of our own

    Our love was just a dream, just a dream
    With all my heart I gave you everything, everything
    Oh and you know
    That it all goes around and round
    'Cause you tumbled me down

    Was it wrong what I did to get to you
    I felt I was the one to help pull you through
    And I know, I know it's alright
    I found a way out, I found a way out

    Our love was just a dream, just a dream
    With all my heart I gave you everything, everything
    Oh and you know
    That it all goes around and round
    'Cause it all goes around and round Writer/s: PHILLIP LA DON JR. PHILLIPS
