  • Lyrics: She was a dream in the land of dreams, a dream with eyes of blue And he was a stranger with hard, striped boots and a heart made just for her They met at night under the light of a cold fluorescent bulb But when they sang and held on tight their harmonies did flow Now, this was hardly the place for girls to grow up alone And he was, as everyone knew, so far from home But, maybe, that was the fact that made them a crazy love The hope, the thought, a dream to be eachother’s only one But time goes by and time goes back and things they always break He was off when she was on and round and round it goes Until finally he saw her standing there in broken worn-down jeans She wasn’t waiting for him and he’d just stopped to pick up his things Now he don’t know if she’s even still around Maybe she’s been across this world; seen people, places and towns But in the end he awoke to find she was just a dream A dream in the land of dreams, a dream with eyes of blue
