Sweet Dreams of You

Somewhere is the past

There was this memory

Of a girl standing in the rain

She was so beautiful

As her tears mingled with the drops of rain

And he wondered where she was

Was she just a dream?

Or some far away memory

And his days were full of work

And his nights filled with loneliness

Ever since the love of his life

Betrayed him and walked away

Then came the dreams

That he wished he could hold onto

In the early morning light

But they faded with the day

And returned in the night

And he suddenly felt

Like he was falling in love

Falling in love with a dream

A dream he never thought could come true

A girl with flaming red hair

That blazed in the sun

And shimmered in the sunset

Her smile like a thousand

Diamonds shining with blinding light

The dream always ended

That same way for him

She was standing in the rain

Tears flowing

And he wanted to reach out to hold her

Tell her that it would be alright

But the day broke

And the dream was laid to rest again

He suddenly began to wonder

If it all had something to do

With the heartbreak

That he had been put through

And everywhere that he went

He searched for the girl

The girl that seemed so familiar now

Perhaps he’d always be in love

With a dream that couldn’t come true

Across the city deep in the night

Was a girl who cried in her pillow

She had been searching for love

And it seemed that love would never come

Then she began dreaming

The dreams came every night

Of a guy who was great in every way

His smile full of warmth

As he held her hand so tight

And left her with a kiss

In the early morning light

So there they were

Fated to be

Yet, not finding each other

Only in their dreams

Amazing as it might be

It was art that kept them apart

She lived in the art world

And he was an accountant

He’d never had the time

Never thought of gallery walking

Until one day a friend

Fell head over heels

For a girl who painted amazing pictures

Things from her imagination

And she could bring you into her world

You just had to love her

He told her of his dream

Told her that he wished he could find

The love that came to him every night

And then one day his friend

Told him to come on over

The artist had painted from her thoughts

The girl who haunted him both day and night

There on canvas was that familiar smile

There was the sparkle in her eyes

The sun reflecting on her red hair

As if in a moment she would step out

From the canvas and give him her hand

It amazed and dazzled him

But before he could take the painting

His friend insisted that it was so fabulous

It must be shared with the world

And the artist took it to a gallery

Fate must have been strong that day

For when she saw the offered painting

She saw her mirrored image

And it took her breath away

By now the artist was wide eyed

Seeing that what she had painted

From a guy’s dream had just become reality

The painting was hung in a prominent place

Both girls had agreed that the dreamer

Should meet the work of art

So on the night of the showing

They came to the gallery

As soon as he entered the doors

There was something unusual in the air

He felt it, he sensed it

And then he looked about

To see the painting

Which represented his dream

And suddenly his dream

Was walking toward him

And he felt a sense of déjà vu

This girl was indeed meant for him

She was reeling from the shock

But she kept on walking

Kept on smiling

He had step out of her dreams

Somewhere up high above

In the heavens their stars had clashed

Bringing them together

In a love so very true

Making all of their dreams now reality
