Every night I go to sleep
And my date with her I keep
There she stands with a face so fair
Smiling eyes and long blonde hair
But comes the dawn and she’s gone again.

Chorus:
Dream girl, dream girl
Can’t you hear me calling
Dream girl, dream girl
In love with you
But what can I do?
Though true as it might seem
You will never be mine
After the twilight time
Cause it’s only a dream

So I’ll keep watching every day
Looking for dream girl
To come my way
And when she does
I’ll know she’ll be
The one that was always
Meant for me

So dream girl hurry
With all your charms
From out of my dreams
And into my arms

Chorus:
Dream girl, dream girl
Can’t you hear me calling
Dream girl, dream girl
In love with you
But what can I do?
Though true as it might seem
You will never be mine
After the twilight time
Cause it’s only a dream.
