Dancer's dream
Dancer's Dream
© 2006 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

The dancer's dream is over
The Footlights slowly fade -
No more music fills the silence -
The songs - have all been played -

On the stage - a final curtain call
The dancer stands alone -
Nothing left to hold - a few old roses / when the night -
Is done - the dream is lost - the memories are gone


Oh, once there was a song called True Love
A rhapsody - a dance for two - in love
Oh, once the music starts - it never ends
The stage is set - the perfect dance begins -
There is nothing in the whole wide world - that can compare -

So many nights remembering
The dancer walks away -
Looking back, romance is just an echo -
A lonely moonlight serenade -

Some regret - upon reflection
Spoken secrets never die -
Broken dreams - they always seem to last so long - somehow -
Tomorrows always come - with yesterdays


Oh, once there was a song called True Love
A rhapsody - a dance for two in love
Always in the dancer's dream -
The music plays - the never ending song -
But when the dance is done - the dream just slips away -
Another day the morning brings - another song to sing
The nights - they pass too soon - but dreams will come again

Come lullaby - the midnight hour
Oh, dancer, go to sleep
A new dream will soon begin - another dance - to dance
The moon and stars - the moon and stars
Will carry you so far -
Oh, dancer - dream the dream your heart must -
