When I am right, then you are righter. When I’m wrong you’re right.
What’s the use? Can we please call a truce, and say goodnight?
I am the one who loves you, always loved you. But at what cost?
Smiles and songs don’t make me less wrong, or less lost.

I don’t know where dreams are supposed to go when dreams don’t come true.
But I dreamed them all for you oh - oh - oh- only you.

Memories seem far less crowded, and far less bright,
more room to breathe, to think, to believe. Tell me. Am I right?
‘Cause I seem to remember we were closer then, and oh so far apart.
So much open space, I still saw your face and heard your heart.

But now it seems like somehow we fence ourselves in
every night again oh - oh - oh and again.

A dream is a ladder that is made of smoke. It beckons you to climb.
Oh I’m so sorry I dragged you so far, and wasted so much time.

I don’t know where should go, where we can be just you and me.
It’s so crowded here, but one thing is clear, and one thing is true I’ll always dream for you;
you and only you oh - oh - oh only you.

Tell me what to do when dreams don’t come true, and I dreamed them all for you.
