Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss
Sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on

Give me a kiss before you leave me
And my imagination will feed my hungry heart
 Leave me one thing before we part
A kiss to build a dream on

And when I'm alone with my fancies, I'll be with you
 Weaving romances, making believe they're true

Oh, give me your lips for just a moment 
And my imagination will make that moment live
Give me what you alone can give
A kiss to build a dream on

When I'm alone with my fancies, I'll be with you
 Weaving romances, making believe they're true

Oh, give me lips for just a moment 
And my imagination will make that moment live
Oh, give me what you alone can give
A kiss to build a dream on
