Darn that dream I dream each night
You say you love me and you hold me tight
But when I awake, I find you're out of sight
Oh, darn that dream

Then I tumble out of paradise
Oh, darn that dream

Darn that one-track mind of mine
I can't understand that you don't care
Just to change the mood I'm in
Lord, I'd welcome a nice old nightmare

Darn that dream and bless it too
Without that dream, I never would have you
But it haunts me 'cause it won't come true
Oh, darn that dream
Oh, darn that dream
