This is one of my favourite Roy Orbison (April 23, 1936 – December 6, 1988) tracks.
It was released as a single in the US in 1963 and became the title track on the album In Dreams, released in July of the same year.
The song has a unique structure in seven musical movements in which Orbison sings through two octaves, beyond the range of most rock and roll singers. (source WIKI)

Sit back and enjoy.

A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
“Go to sleep. Everything is all right.”

I close my eyes, then I drift away
Into the magic night, I softly say
A silent prayer like dreamers do
Then I fall asleep to dreams, my dreams of you

In dreams I walk with you, in dreams I talk to you
In dreams you’re mine, all of the time
We’re together in dreams, in dreams

But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone
I can’t help it, I can’t help it, if I cry
I remember that you said goodbye

It’s too bad that all these things
Can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams, in beautiful dreams

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
