The Carpenters - Those good old dreams
Tekst: John Bettis / Muziek: Richard Carpenter
(1981)






As a child I was known for make-believing
All alone I created fantasies
As I grew, people called it self-deceiving
But my heart helped me hold the memories



As I walk through the world I find around me
Something new, yet familiar’s in the air
I feel it ev’rywhere
Like a child’s eyes
On a Christmas night
I’m lookin’ at you now
Finding answers to my prayers



It’s a new day for those good old dreams
One by one it seems they’re comin’ true
Here’s the morning that my heart had seen
Here’s the morning that just had to come through



Same old stage, but what a change of scene
No more dark horizons, only blue
It’s a new day for those good old dreams
All my life I dreamed of lovin’ you



You’re a spark of a long forgotten fire
You’re a touch of a slowly growing wind
You’re a taste of the ever-changing seasons
Telling me, there are some things that don’t end



We have left all the darkness far behind us
All those hopes that we held along the way
Have made it to this day
Like an old love song
Gone for much too long
You hear it once again
And it carries you away



It’s a new day for those good old dreams
One by one it seems they’re comin’ true
Here’s the morning that my heart had seen
Here’s the morning that just had to come through



Same old stage, but what a change of scene
No more dark horizons, only blue
It’s a new day for those good old dreams
All my life I dreamed of you



It’s a new day for those good old dreams
And it’s all because of you
