  • Sweet, sweet dreams of you
    Every night I go through
    Why can't I forget my past and live my life anew
    Instead I'm having sweet dreams about you

    You, you don't love me, it's plain
    I should have know you'd never wear my name
    I, I should hate you girl, the whole night through
    Instead I'm having sweet dreams about you

    I, I should hate you girl, the whole night through
    Instead I'm having sweet dreams about you
    Instead I'm having sweet dreams about you Writer/s: DON GIBSON

  • Ron from Pensacola, FlROFLOL, The song that comes up when you click lyrics is the Eurythmics song, not the patsy cline/Eivin Bishop/Tommy Mclain "Sweet Dreams" which are two completely different songs.
