"Everybody Has A Dream" as written by and Billy Joel....
While in these days of quiet desperation
As I wander through the world in which I live
I search everywhere, for some new inspiration
But it's more than cold reality can give

If I need a cause for celebration
Or a comfort I can use to ease my mind
I rely on my imagination
And I dream of an imaginary time

[Chorus: ]
I know that everybody has a dream
Everybody has a dream
And this is my dream, my own
Just to be at home
And to be all alone...with you

If I believe in all the words I'm saying
And if a word from you can bring a better day
Then all I have are these games that I've been playing
To keep my hope from crumbling away

So let me lie and let me go on sleeping
And I will lose myself in palaces of sand
And all the fantasies that I have been keeping
Will make the empty hours easier to stand

[Chorus: ]

Everybody has a dream... (Repeat)

    General CommentThese lines are some of the laziest, warmest, sunday in the sun lines I've ever heard:

    "So let me lie and let me go on sleeping
    And I will lose myself in palaces of sand
    And all the fantasies that I have been keeping
    Will make the empty hours ...easier to stand ..."

    In my dreams they are both naked btw, and "easier easier to stand" feels like climax.
