"Dream Lover" as written by Prince Rogers Nelson and Marta Marrero....
Every night I hope and pray
A dream lover will come my way
A girl to hold in my arms
And know the magic of her charms
'Cause I want
A girl
To call
My own
I want a dream lover
So I don't have to dream alone

Dream lover, where are you
With a love, oh, so true
And the hand that I can hold
To feel you near as I grow old
'Cause I want
A girl
To call
My own
I want a dream lover
So I don't have to dream alone

Someday, I don't know how
I hope she'll hear my plea
Some way, I don't know how
She'll bring her love to me

Dream lover, until then
I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do
Till all my lover's dreams come true
'Cause I want
A girl
To call
My own
I want a dream lover
So I don't have to dream alone

Dream lover, until then
I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do
Till all my lover's dreams come true
'Cause I want
A girl
To call
My own
I want a dream lover
So I don't have to dream alone

Please don't make me dream alone
I beg you don't make me dream alone
No, I don't wanna dream

    General CommentI can't believe more people haven't commented here. They certainly don't make them like this anymore. It seems most guys aren't interested in finding a soulmate for life anymore. I totally identify with this song.

    General CommentThis is a song of romantic love with no sexuality at all. It is pure and beautiful. It is unfortunate that we have gotten away from this.

    It is also unfortunate that Bobby Darin, who composed it, did not find his dream lover. His marriage to Sandra Dee ought to have been a fairy tale marriage. Unfortunately, it was not.
