Something of a Dreamer
by Mary Chapin Carpenter



She used to watch him from afar
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
He'd take her home

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
