This song is by Antonio Carlos Jobim and appears on the album The Composer Of Desafinado Plays (1963).

Why are my eyes always full
Of this vision of you
Why do I dream silly dreams
That I fear won't come true
I long to show you the stars
Caught in the dark of the sea
I long to speak of my love
But you don't come to me

So I go on asking if maybe
One day you'll care
I tell my sad little dreams
To the soft evening air
I am quite hopeless it seems
Two things I know how to do
One is to dream
Two is loving you
