LYRICS

All the things you said to me today
Changed my perspective in every way-ay-ay
These things count to mean so much to me
Into my faith you and your baby

It’s out there, it’s out the-ere
It’s out there
If you want me I’ll be he-e-ere
It’s out there, it’s out the-ere
It’s out there
If you want me I’ll be he-ere

I’ll be dreaming my dreams with you
I’ll be dreaming my dreams with you
And there’s no other place
That I’d lay down my face
I’ll be dreaming my dreams with you

It’s out there (out there), it’s out the-ere (out there)
It’s out there
If you want me, I’ll be he-e-ere
It’s out there (out there), it’s out the-ere (out there)
It’s out there
If you want me, I’ll be he-ere

I’ll be dreaming my dreams with you
I’ll be dreaming my dreams with you
And there’s no other place
That I’d lay down my face
I’ll be dreaming my dreams with you

Dreaming my dreams with you
I’ll be dreaming my dreams with you
And there’s no other place
That I’d lay down my face
I’ll be dreaming my dreams with you
