Lyrics verse:
LOVE IS A STRANGE
AND POWERFUL THING,
IT CAN BRING YOU DOWN
OR MAKE YOU SING.
LOVE MAY GIVE YOU
A MILLIONAIRE'S SCHEME,
BUT IT ONLY GAVE ME
ONE DREAM.

Chorus:
DARN THAT DREAM
I DREAM EACH NIGHT,
YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME
AND YOU HOLD ME TIGHT,
BUT WHEN I AWAKE
YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT,
OH, DARN THAT DREAM.
DARN YOUR LIPS
AND DARN YOUR EYES,
THEY LIFT ME HIGH
ABOVE THE MOONLIT SKIES,
THEN I TUMBLE OUT
OF PARADISE,
OH,
DARN THAT DREAM.

DARN
THAT ONE-TRACK MIND
OF MINE,
IT CAN'T UNDERSTAND
THAT YOU DON'T CARE.
JUST TO CHANGE
THE MOOD I'M IN,
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
AND IT WON'T COME TRUE,
OH,
DARN THAT DREAM.

Lyrics verse:
SEEMS THAT I READ,
OR SOMEBODY SAID,
THAT OUT OF SIGHT
IS OUT OF MIND.
MAYBE THAT'S SO,
BUT I TRIED TO GO
AND LEAVE YOU
BEHIND,
WHAT DID I FIND?

Chorus:
I TOOK A TRIP
ON THE TRAIN,
AND
I THOUGHT ABOUT YOU.
I PASSED
A SHADOWY LANE,
AND
I THOUGHT ABOUT YOU.
TWO OR THREE CARS
PARKED
UNDER THE STARS,
A WINDING STREAM,
MOON SHINING DOWN
ON SOME LITTLE TOWN,
AND WITH EACH BEAM,
SAME OLD DREAM.
AT EV'RY STOP
THAT WE MADE,
OH,
I THOUGHT ABOUT YOU.
BUT WHEN
I PULLED DOWN
THE SHADE,
THEN
I REALLY FELT
BLUE.
I PEEKED
THROUGH THE CRACK
AND LOOKED
AT THE TRACK,
THE ONE GOING BACK
TO YOU,
AND WHAT DID I DO?
I THOUGHT ABOUT YOU!

Lyrics ONE O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING,
SHOUTS THE TIMEPIECE
ON THE SHELF,
ONE O'CLOCK EVERY MORNING
FINDS ME SITTING BY MYSELF.
THERE'S MUCH
THAT'S WORTH
REMEMBERING,
EXCEPT FOR JUST ONE THING:

WHAT GOOD IS A DREAM,
A PLAN OR A SCHEME,
THE RAINBOW
THAT YOU PURSUE?
IT'S EVERYTHING
AND IT'S NOTHING,
WITHOUT SOMEONE
TO TELL IT TO.
HOW EAGER YOU ARE
TO GET TO THAT STAR,
BUT AFTER
THE JOURNEY'S THROUGH,
YOU'RE ONLY
A LONELY DREAMER,
WITHOUT SOMEONE
TO TELL IT TO.

THERE'LL BE BIRTHDAYS,
HARD TO GET
THROUGH DAYS,
DAYS WHEN
YOU JUST WANT TO DIE.
SOON YOU'RE OLDER
AND THE WORLD'S
COLDER,
WHEN THERE'S NO SHOULDER
TO CRY ON.

CASTLES IN AIR
ARE EMPTY AND BARE
WITH NO ONE
TO SHARE THE VIEW,
THE MOONLIGHT
IS MERELY MOONLIGHT,
THERE'S NO MAGIC
IN I LOVE YOU,
WITHOUT SOMEONE,
SOMEONE TO TELL IT TO.
