lyrics

The Dreamers

Gina was one of those dreamers
Always believed that the world had a conscience
Dreamed of love and slow dancing
Yeah Gina from Clark Street was one of those dreamers
And Bobby was never the hero
But the loyal friend that dies in the end
Whose dreams they never believed in
But if Bobby was breathin, Bobby was dreamin'

Some people dream oh of a white picket fence
Some people dream of no fences at all
Some dreams exist oh just to get you through
Some dreams never come true

Now Gina she finally got married
But she wonders about the choices she's made
Stands at the sink and still dreams
Yeah Gina is one of those dreamers
And Bobby's divorced but dating again
He can't find another that dreams like him
He lays all alone half alive and just thinkin'
But if Bobby's still breathin' Bobby's still dreamin'

Some people dream oh of a white picket fence
Some people dream of no fences at all
Some dreams exist oh just to get you through
Some dreams never come true

Now there ain't nothin' sadder in this whole wide world
Then when a dream withers and dies on the vine
The blessings you've had are tossed by the wayside
Your dreams don't come true and you dream all the time

Last night I dreamed we were together
Like how it used to be
Back home in those old haunts
When it was just you and me

Some people dream oh of a white picket fence
Some people dream of no fences at all
Some dreams exist oh just to get you through
Some dreams never come true

Now Gina was one of those dreamers
But nothing's forever and everything fades
And Bobby's barely breathin' and Bobby’s barely dreamin'
And he wonders about the choices he's made
