Abstract

[Verse 1] The sunbeams have taken their flight,
The day slowly turned into night;
All nature’s at rest,
The birds in their nest
Sleep on, ‘neath the moon’s sil’ry light.
The shadows of eve ease my heart
For now that we’ve drifted apart,
I find joys anew while dreaming of you,
Dreams that can ne’er come true.

[Chorus]
Dreams, just dreams,
My beautiful golden dreams,
It seems my dreams
Are missives of sweet consolation.
Each dream I dream
Turns gloom to a bright sunbeam
Since the love that I gave
Found a grave, all I crave
Are dreams, just dreams

[Verse 2]
I wake with the morning my dear,
The sun up above shining clear;
The flowers seem gay to welcome the day,
A day that will seem like a year.
My goal is a land so it seems,
Where night never turns to sunbeams,
The world I would give to go, there and live,
Live with my golden dreams

[Chorus]
