In Dreams

Lyrics: Roy Orbison
Music: Roy Orbison

Sung a few times by Vince Welnick with Ratdog in 1995.

A candy colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
Go to sleep, everything is alright

I close my eyes then I drift away
Into the magic night I softly say
A silent prayer like dreamers do
Then I go to sleep and dream
My dreams of you

In dreams I walk with you
In dreams I talk to you
In dreams you're mine
All the time we're together
In dreams, in dreams

But just before the dawn
I awake and find you gone
I can't help it, I can't help it if I cry
I remember that you said goodbye

It's too bad that all these things
Can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams
In beautiful dreams
