A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle star dust and to whisper
Go to sleep, everything is all right.
I close my eyes then I drift away
Into the magic night, I softly say
A silent prayer like dreamers do
Then I fall asleep to dream of you.
In dreams I walk with you
In dreams I talk with you
In dreams you’re mine all the time
We’re together in dreams, in dreams.
But just before the dawn
I awake and find you gone
I can’t help it,
I can’t help it if I cry
I remember that you said goodbye.
Too bad it only seems
It only happens in my dreams
Only in dreams
In my beautiful dreams.
