Deep in a rosy glow
The face of my love you show

Day Dream
I walk along on air
Building a castle there
For me and my love to share

Don't know the time
Lordy, I'm in a daze
Sun in the sky
While I moon around, feeling hazy

Day Dream
Don't break my reverie
Until I find that he
Is day dreaming just like me
