All I have to Do is Dream – The Everly Brothers

When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Dream, dream, dream, dream

Now I lie in bed and think of her,
Sometimes I even weep.
Then I dream of her, behind the wall of sleep.

Somebody save me now
And I’m closing my eyes cause once the sun rises
It’s out of my hands
It’s out of my hands

All talk of circadian rhythm

I see today with a newsprint fray
My night is colored headache gray

And leave tomorrow behind

Enter, night
Take my hand
We’re off to never-never land

And back to union square
Where do I get some sleep?
Anywhere the sleep dust lies
It decorates your eyes
When do I get some sleep?

Like I said I can sleep when I’m dead
Like I said
Like I said
I can sleep when I’m dead

Lift my head, I’m still yawning
When I’m in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed, float up stream
