LOVE'S FOOLS MUST DREAM ALONE Sung by Lori Dortono
Lyrics
LOVE?S FOOLS MUST DREAM ALONE
© 2004 Mary Cole Grimley and Greg Garrett
Written by Mary Cole and Greg Garrett.

I was waiting for love, wasting time.
Didn't see that what I had was right before my eyes.
You'd think I'd know
Love's fools must dream alone.

Without you, my heart beats out of tune.
Didn't know you'd think that I was asking for the moon.
You'd think I'd know
Love's fools must dream alone.

Surrounded by the stars but still I dream alone
And ponder what I've lost and what I should have known.
This heart beat out of tune in melancholy tone
Reminds me yet again
Love's fools must dream alone.

I was waiting for love, passing time,
And I wish I'd close my eyes and see you here again
You'd think I'd know
Love's fools must dream alone.

O yes, you'd think I'd learn from my mistakes
( And yet I wasn't asking for the moon )
But here I go again -
You'd think I'd know
Love's fools must dream alone.

Surrounded by the stars but still I dream alone
And ponder what I've lost and what I should have known.
This heart beat out of tune in melancholy tone
Reminds me yet again
Love's fools must dream alone

I am waiting here, love, and in time
You may come to see that I'm not asking for the moon
And you and I
No longer dream alone.

Surrounded by the stars, no longer all alone,
Together all the time, in love that's all our own,
Our hearts so full of love will bring the laughter home.
Our song will fill the day,
When you and I
No longer dream alone.
Description
Short Song Description:
This song is about how sometimes one does not recognize love when it is right before one's eyes; how sometimes asking or demanding perfection can leave one alone to dream.
