Lyrics:

(Genius)

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 dis-illusion there

But I can dream, can’t I?

Can I adore you although we are oceans apart?

I can’t make you open your heart

But I can dream, can’t I?

I’m aware my heart is a sad affair

There’s much dis-illusion 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?”

I can dream, “Can’t I?
