You Can Dream of Me

Album: Life's Highway (1975)
  • Well I've heard it said
    The grass is always greener
    We want what we can't have
    Or so it seems

    When I looked at you
    The world never looked any sweeter
    I go home to her
    And see you in my dreams

    So if you want someone
    To fill your waking hours
    With a love that is real
    Baby I'm still not free
    If you think you could fall
    For a telephone call
    And some flowers
    If you're dreamin' of someone
    You can dream of me

    When the stars are out
    Sometimes I still can remember
    The clear September night
    When we first met

    And through the fall
    I never looked at another
    Then the winter came
    How quickly we forget

    So if you want someone
    To fill your waking hours
    With a love that is real
    Baby I'm still not free
    If you think you could fall
    For a telephone call
    And some flowers
    If you're dreamin of someone
    You can dream of me

    Dream of me
    I'll be dreamin of you
    I'll never forget how you told me
    That your heart was taken too

    You said
    So if you want someone
    To fill your waking hours
    With a love that is real
    Baby I'm still not free
    If you think you could fall
    For a telephone call
    And some flowers
    If you're dreamin of someone
    You can dream of me

    I'll be dreaming of you babe,
    You can dream of me Writer/s: JOHN HALL, JON HALL, STEVEN NOEL WARINER
