Darn that Dream
Lyrics: Eddie DeLange
Music: Jimmy Van Heusen
Darn that dream I dream each night
You say you love me and you hold me tight
But when I awake you’re out of sight,
Oh, darn that dream
Darn those lips, and darn those eyes,
They lift me high above the moonlit skies
Then I tumble out of paradise
Oh, darn that dream..
Darn that one track mind of mine
It can’t understand that you don’t care
Just to change this mood I’m in
I’d welcome a nice old nightmare.
Darn that dream, and bless it too
Without that dream I never would have you
But it haunts me, and it won’t come true,
Oh, darn that dream….
