"Dreaming" as written by Brian Wayne Transeau, Paul Frank Muggleton, Mike Paxman and Judy Tzuke....
When I met you in the restaurant
You could tell I was no debutante
You asked me what's my pleasure
A movie or a measure?
I'll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreaming
Dreaming is free
I don't want to live on charity
Pleasure's real or is it fantasy?
Reel to reel is living rarity
People stop and stare at me
We just walk on by
We just keep on dreaming
Feet feet, walking a two mile
Meet meet, meet me at the turnstile
I never met him, I'll never forget him
Dream dream, even for a little while
Dream dream, filling up an idle hour
Fade away, radiate
I sit by and watch the river flow
I sit by and watch the traffic go
Imagine something of your very own
Something you can have and hold
I'd build a road in gold
Just to have some dreaming
Dreaming is free

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this yet. i really like this song...favorite line is the last dreaming is free, how true
    I also like I never met him, I'll never forget him it's like meeting someone and just "dreaming" what could be and how great it could be but never doing anything about it.....this hits close to home.

    I'm not sure about Bury Me...I heard somewhere that it was actually James, after eating a whole bunch of M&Ms and Twinkies, who was doing the "female" vocals.
