This song's about a question that I've asked so many times,
Just to find the answer here at last it's hidden in your eyes.
I'm unable to explain the meaning, I only know it's real:
It's how I feel, looking at you.
Have you had a dream that suddenly started to come true?
Well, that's the way this feeling grew.
Perhaps you've asked that question too, at some time in your life?
It may sound strange but, if you stop and think, then it works out right;
It's this: who dreams the dreamer who dreams you
Dreaming the dreamer who?
Explanations I might offer are worth no more than a lie,
Still, it matters only that our dreams are sometimes realized.
Well I've tried my best but can't express the impressions that might reveal
Just how I feel, looking at you.
Have you had a dream that suddently started to come true?
You may have had some reason to be uncertain before we met;
But, now that you and I no longer are strangers, please don't forget
That I am the dreamer who dreams you
Dreaming the dreamer who
(Dreaming the dreamer who)
Dreams of the dreamer: you.
detail from "Three Legends of Saint Nicholas" by Gerard David, ca.1500-1510
