Jimmy Van Heusen / Edgar De Lange

Darn that dream

I dream each night

You say you love me and hold me tight

But when I awake and you're out of sight

Oh, darn that dream

Darn your lips and darn your eyes

They lift me high above the moonlit sky

Then I tumble out of paradise

Oh, darn that dream

Darn that one track mind of mine

It can't understand that you don't care

Just to change the mood I'm in

I'd welcome a nice old nightmare

Darn that dream

And bless it too

Without that dream I never have you

But it haunts me and it won't come true

Oh, darn that dream
