in dreams lyrics – tom jones

a candy-colored clown they call the sandman
tiptoes to my room every night
just to sprinkle stardust 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
my dreams of you.

in dreams i walk with you.
in dreams i talk to you.
in dreams you’re mine.
all of 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.

it’s too bad that all these things
can only happen in my dreams
only in dreams
in beautiful dreams
