(Words & Music by Roy Orbison)
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
