It’s The Same Old Dream

Writer(s): Sammy Cahn / Jule Styne

I can see a steeple – surrounded by people, oh how real it all starts to seem
Just as the choir is singing – my alarm starts ringing, it’s the same old dream
And then my thoughts inspire – a scene by a fire in a cottage close by a stream
I know it all by heart now – we’re about to part now, it’s the same old dream
If you but knew how many times I pretend – that I’m with you
I’m sure your heart would unbend – you’d see me through
Until my dream had a happy ending
And I can picture clearly – the things I love dearly, in the center you reign supreme
We kiss and I discover – I’m a lonesome lover, it’s the same old dream
