Somewhere someday
We'll be close together
Wait and see.
Oh, and by the way
This time the dream's on me

You'll take my hand
And you'll look at me adoringly
I understand
Oh, this time the dream's on me

It won't be far
To be certain that I'm the one
To know that I at least
Supplied the shoulder you cried upon

To see you through
'Til you're everything you want to be
It can't be true
But this time the dream's on me

It won't be far
To be certain that I'm the one
To know that I at least
Supplied a shoulder you cried upon

To see you through
'Til you're everything you want to be
It can't be true
No, but this time the dream's on
Me

    General CommentI think the line "It won't be far" is actually "It would be fun". The latter actually rhymes with the next line as I hear it when Ella Fitzgerald sings it.

    Typos aside, this song is about a person who fantasizes about a relationship she believes she can never have.
