when i met you in the restaurant
you could tell i was no debutante
you asked me what's my pleasure,
"a movie or a measure"?
i'll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreaming
dreaming is free
i don't want to live on charity
pleasure's real or is it fantasy?
reel to reel is living rarity
people stop and stare at me,
we just walk on by; we just keep on dreaming
feet feet: walking a two mile
meet meet: meet me at the turnstile
i never met him, i'll never forget him
dream dream: even for a little while
dream dream: filling up an idle hour
fade away, radiate
i sit by and watch the river flow
i sit by and watch the traffic go
imagine something of your very own,
something you can have and hold
i'd build a road in gold just to have some dreaming
dreaming is free
