I AM ONLY DREAMING, DREAMING, by            
First Line: Golden hair and laughing eyes
Last Line: Through my study door.
Subject(s): Dreams; Nightmares


Golden hair and laughing eyes,
Wealth of beauty which men prize,
Ruby lips and form divine,
No, they never can be mine,
I am only dreaming, dreaming,
With the golden moonlight streaming
Through my study door.

Just a boy I seem to be,
Happy as a lark and free,
Romping through the wooded dell
With the one I love so well,
But I'm only dreaming, dreaming,
With the golden moonlight gleaming
Through my study door.

Why, oh why, must I awake,
And my pleasant dreams forsake,
Wake and find denied to me
All but grave reality?
Know I'm only dreaming, dreaming,
With the golden moonlight beaming
Through my study door.
