I Can Dream, Can't I? Tommy Dorsey (#1 in 1930), Andrews Sisters (#1 in 1949, #1 in 1950), Carpenters

As we eye the blue horizon’s bend,
Earth and sky appear to meet and end.
But it’s only an illusion
In this heart of mine there is no sweet conclusion.
I can see, No matter how near you’ll be,
You’ll never belong to me,
But I can dream, can’t I?
Can’t I pretend that I’m locked in the bend of your embrace?
For dreams are just like wine,
And I am drunk with mine.
I’m aware, my heart is a sad affair.
There’s much disillusion there,
But I can dream, can’t I?
Can’t I adore you although we are oceans apart?
I can’t make you open your heart,
But I Can Dream, Can’t I?
