I Get Lost In A Dream

by Thomas K. Hunt

I'm just sitting back easy taking in the night
Among a circle of friends under the northern moonlight
Reaping the rewards from another beautiful day
In the Thousand Islands up near French Creek Bay

I just closed my eyes for a second or two
And I was back on the river, and the sky was blue
Something was different; it wasn't what it seemed
Then I opened my eyes from another dream

I got lost in a dream with you by my side
I closed my eyes, and we went for a ride
I was smiling from where I'm supposed to be
Upon the river with you beside me

I go back every chance I get
I get there every day, but I'm not there yet
I get lost in a dream when I want to be with you
I get lost every day, and this is nothing new

I just close my eyes when I want to go there
When I open them, it all disappears
I'm in a dream any time of the day
One day I'll close my eyes, and there I'll stay

I get lost in a dream when I want to go home
In my dream, I've never roamed
I'm back in time where I belong
Then I wake up to the same old song

I got lost in a dream with you by my side
I closed my eyes, and we went for a ride
I was smiling from where I'm supposed to be
Upon the river with you beside me
