You Are Here Alan Gillies' House of Music
IF ONLY DREAMS CAME TRUE
words & music by Alan Gillies
I fall asleep with your name on my lips,
Wishing instead it was your tender kiss;
Ev'ry night begins like this.

I know you're mine only in my dreams,
I've no courage at all when I'm awake it seems,
So I drift away, on moonlight beams;

And there you are with all your charms,
As my head starts ringing off heartache alarms,
But it's too late, 'cause you're in my arms;

It's too good to be real, but I can't help how I feel,
Still I know that it can never be enough,
If only dreams came true, then you'd say you love me too,
And you'd still be by my side when I wake up;
It's so easy to wanna believe it, and I never wanna leave it,
But it's to good to be real, it's only synthetic love.

I look into your eyes and pray,
To find the words I long to say,
And that you don't just turn away;

You look in mine and softly smile,
And my heart falls another mile,
Holding you closely all the while;

And then you place your lips on mine,
Intoxicating more than any wine,
Two hearts together 'til the end of time;

It's too good to be real, but I can't help how I feel,
Still I know that it can never be enough;
If only dreams came true, then you'd say you love me too,
And you'd still be by my side when I wake up;
It's so easy to wanna believe it, and I never wanna leave it,
But it's too good to be real, it's only synthetic love.

She's my dream girl, but that's all she'll ever be,
Filling ev'ry night with ecstasy,
But still it's just a fantasy.

Now I'm awake and you're here too,
I'm wishing that you only knew,
and that I had the strength to say that I love you.
