While in these days of quiet desperation
As I wander through the world in which I live
I search everywhere for some new inspiration
But it's more than cold reality can give

If I need a cause for celebration
Or a comfort I can use to ease my mind
I rely on my imagination
And I dream of an imaginary time, oh

I know that everybody has a dream
Everybody has a dream
Everybody has a dream

And this is my dream, my own
Just to be at home
And to be all alone with you

If I believe in all the words I'm saying
And if a word from you can bring a better day
Then all I have are these games that I've been playing
To keep my hope from crumbling away

So let me lie and let me go on sleeping
And I will lose myself in palaces of sand
And all the fantasies that I have been keeping
Will make the empty hours easier, easier to stand

And I know that everybody has a dream
Everybody has a dream
Everybody has a dream

And this is my dream, my own
Just to be at home
And to be all alone
All alone with you, with you

I know that everybody has a dream, oh
Everybody has a dream
I know that everybody has a dream
Everybody, everybody, everybody
(Everybody has a dream)
Everybody has a dream
(Everybody has a dream)
Everybody has a dream
