Like Dreamers Do

Roy orbison – In Dreams

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 prayerlike 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 youre mine. all of the time were together
In dreams, in dreams.

But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone.
I cant help it, I cant help it, if I cry.
I remember that you said goodbye.

Its too bad that all these things, can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams in beautiful dreams.

    I really don’t know. I heard this song in a TV show and googled the lyrics. I only found with Roy Orbison :).

    Yeah, I think this Orbison song is different. Like Dreamers Do was one of only two hits for the Applejacks in the 60s (I used to know their keyboard player Don Gould) P.S. Thanks for adding my blog!
