From the album Cosmic Summer Sojourn

This song about dreaming was written in 1892 by W. Lowell Phillips. Apologies to Mr. Phillips for changing the tune...it just kind of happened.

"By and by, there will be a great awakening; Then we will know that this is all a great dream." Chuang Tzu

"It is only when we wake from dreams that we know we have been dreaming." Paramahansa Yogananda

Lyrics

Dreams..... Dreams..... Beautiful Dreams.....
Fairy-like visions of heavenly birth

Dreams..... Dreams..... Beautiful Dreams.....
Thoughts breathed by angels to mortals on earth
Thoughts breathed by angels to mortals on earth

Dreams..... Dreams..... Beautiful Dreams.....
Oft through the mind of the wanderer ye stray
In fancy we rove through bright scenes of our life
With friends of our heart who are far, far away

Dreams..... Dreams..... Beautiful Dreams.....
Oft through the mind of the weary ye creep
Fairy-like visions that haunt us in sleep

Dreams..... Dreams..... Beautiful Dreams.....

Dreams..... Dreams..... Beautiful Dreams.....
Oft from bright visions the heart wakes to weep

Dreams..... Dreams..... Beautiful Dreams.....
Solace of sorrow, companions of sleep
Solace of sorrow, companions of sleep

Dreams..... Dreams..... Beautiful Dreams.....
Thy magic restores the fond feeling of youth
When roving at eve by some murmuring rill
And heard friendship’s vows and believed in their truth

Dreams..... Dreams..... Beautiful Dreams.....
To the aged and wayworn bright scenes ye portray
Of life’s blissful hours, of friends fondly prized
But like all things lovely ye soon pass away

Dreams..... Dreams..... Beautiful Dreams.....
