    Just a Dream

    Written and recorded by Jimmy Clanton, 1958
    (b. 02 Sept 1940)

    Just a dream, just a dream:
    All our plans and our all schemes.
    How could I think you'd be mine?
    The lies I'd tell myself each time.

    I know that we could never last;
    We just can't seem to in the past.
    Just a dream I dream in vain;
    With you I'd only live in pain.

    Your picture is always with me;
    I can still hear that same mournful song.
    And now I sit here crying;
    Please leave me alone.

    Why, why do I love you?
    How can I live in misery?
    I know that I won't forget you,
    But now I know it's too late for me.
