Lyrics

Dream on, young hearts- dream on, dream on,
But dream of all things gay;
Dream that the morrow will be bright,
As bright as yesterday.
Wake not, wake not from scenes of bliss,
Youth's dreams are ever fair;
Your world, it is a world of dreams,
Wake not to our's of care!
Dream on, young hearts- dream on, dream on,
But dream of all things gay;
Dream that the morrow will be bright,
And sweet as yesterday.

2nd verse
Like sudden meteors o'er our paths,
Bright joys, they flash and fly;
As sunshine yields to wintry clouds,
As spring flowers bloom and die-
So hope gives place to vain regrets,
So brave succeeds to gay;
So all that's fair a moment dwells,
Then, blighted, dies away.
Dream on young hearts- dream on, dream on,
But dream of all things gay;
Dream that the morrow will be bright,
And sweet as yesterday.
