"All I Have To Do Is Dream" as written by and Boudleaux Bryant....
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream

When I feel blue in the night
And I need you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I'm dreamin' my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I'm dreamin' my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream

Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream

    General CommentThe "gee whizz " part is pretty corny, but its a great song over all, it's so touching and serene.

    General CommentBob Dylan's cover is priceless. Just hearing him sing "Gee whiz" is hilarious.

    General Commentthis song is so beautiful. I think most of us at one time or another do exactly as said above. I think this is a perfect song for a crush (cosidering that you just dream about them, I am supposing the feeling is one sided!) or new love 9given time the dreamin' will cease!)

    General CommentTo me this song is not necessarily one sided.. more about being parted from someone that you care a great deal about and missing them.

    General Commentyes i defintly agree with 1234kiwi...its when you're missing someone, or you've moved 3 hours away and alll you want is your signifcant other to be with you, but they can't cause they're far away...so all you have to do is dream. (relateable)

    General CommentI don't really see this as being a one sided thing. I believe it is more that he is dreaming about someone he is in love with. Being "in love" and having a crush that you day dream about are not the same thing.
    "I can make you mine
    Taste your lips of wine
    Anytime, night or day
    Only trouble is, gee whiz
    I'm dreaming my life away"
    Which is most of the song... is recalling something he knows about. Remembering what he has with the person when he is with them.. not simply fantasizing in his head. Sweet song.

    General CommentI think the narrator is singing about a lost love. Hence "Dreaming my life away."

    He's hung up on the girl.
