"In My Dreams" as written by and Cronin/kelly....
There was a time some time ago
When every sunrise meant a sunny day, oh a sunny day
But now when the morning light shines in
It only disturbs the dreamland where I lay, oh where I lay
I used to thank the lord when I'd wake
For life and love and the golden sky above me
But now I pray the stars will go on shinin'
You see in my dreams you love me

Daybreak is a joyful time
Just listen to the songbird harmonies, oh the harmonies
But, I wish the dawn would never come
I wish there was silence in the trees, oh the trees
If only I could stay asleep
At least I could pretend you're thinkin' of me
'Cause nighttime is the one time I am happy
You see in my dreams

We climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us
We are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me
In my dreams

I keep hopin' one day I'll awaken
And somehow she'll be lying by my side
And as I wonder if the dawn is really breakin'
She touches me and suddenly I'm alive

And, we climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us
We are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me
In my dreams

And we climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us
We are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me
In my dreams, oh oh oh oh
In my dreams

    General CommentI was just a kid when this song came out, so it didn't really have any special meaning for me, other than that I just liked it. But when I hit my teen years, of course, like many other teens, I went through my series of "true loves"...you know, where you practically breathe in their very essence...and they don't even know you exist, even if they've been sitting in front of you in home room or copying your homework or test papers for years. I'd worn out several cassette tapes over the years listening to this song while I mooned over the "true love" of the moment, and to this day it still holds many bitterswet memories of youth for me. It's one of those classics that just seem to bring back a more innocent time, when love really did conquer all and everything was possible. As long as there's love, unrequited or otherwise--songs like this will have a place in the world.
