I Used To Dream

I used to dream
Imagine how things might be
Created thousands of lives for me
As singer, sailor, spy
Conceivably, I have done everything
That one could ever do
But none of it was true.

I used to dream
Imagine strange places off afar
And the long leisurely drives there by car
In BMW, Mercedes, Porsche
I have driven everything
Far and wide and at some speed too
But none of it was true

I used to dream
Imagine how things had once been
History lived, experienced and seen
As King, Prince, Earl
I have charmed and dined
Fought and loved, but right on cue
I knew none of it was true

I once had a dream
Lived it every day and every night
It didn’t work out quite right
In London, Houston, Prague
I worked hard and played
Though none of it seemed true
I guess this one will just have to do.
