Darn that Dream - Afterallogy - Lyrics

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….
