Everybody said I can only dream so much,
Well I asked my friend John
And he said he don't want to go now,
If that's the case, then get me out of this place
I don't ever want to grow up, that is why

[CHORUS]
I'll leave my window open for you,
Come around I've got space for two,
I'll leave my window open for you,
So what are you gonna do?

Everybody knows I would always think too much,
I asked my friend John
And he said "Don't you know love?"
Because if you aim so high,
Then nothing can fly by,
You won't ever want to come down so

[CHORUS]

    General CommentK that's a good try at the lyrics but from someone who owns the "Elm St." CD, I have to dissagree about them. Especially since this is my favorite song

    Everybody knows I can only dream so much,
    Well I asked my friend John
    And he don't want to go now,
    I said well, If that's the case, get me out of this place
    I don't ever want to grow up, that is why

    I'll leave my window open for you,
    Come around I've got room for two,
    I'll leave my window open for you,
    So what are you gonna do?
    What are you gonna do?

    Everybody said I would always think too much,
    now well I asked my friend John
    And he said "Don't you know love?"
    Because now if you aim so high,
    Then nothing can fly by,
    You won't ever want to come down that is why.

    I'll leave my window open for you,
    Come around I've got Space for you,
    I'll leave my window open for you,
    So what are you gonna do?
    What are you gonna do?
    What are you gonna do?
    What are you?
    What are you?
    What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?
    What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do? (Yeah)
    What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?
    What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do? (Yeah)
    What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?
    What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?
    (I’ll leave my window open for you)
    What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?
    (Come around I’ve got room for you)
    What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?
    (I’ll leave my window open for you)
    What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?
    (Come around I’ve got room for you)
    What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?
