She used to dream about him
And she'd wish upon a star
That one day he'd want her for his own
 Throw caution to the wind
And with a grin

She's something of a dreamer  Something of a fool
 Something of a heartbreak 
When she gives her heart to you

And she used to hear his voice at night 
A sweet whisper from the shadows  Dancing with the back porch light
And she used to feel him in the wind
His warm breath upon her neck
And goosebumps up and down her skin

She's something of a dreamer  Something of a fool
 Something of a heartbreak 
When she gives her heart to you

Well she should have known by now
But that's the foolish part of her
She should have seen somehow 
But a dreamer's never cured
When heartbreak fast approaches 
When a love ain't truly love
He promised wine and roses 
And she thought that was enough 

She's something of a dreamer  Something of a fool
 Something of a heartbreak 
When she gives her heart to you
