The Fool's Dream

Johnny McCarthy & Pat Crowley
I stand on the shore, a-gazing Looking out on the deep rolling sea Wishing you're coming back to me Returning home across the sea But it's only a fool's dream My face from you memory faded Is your mind on some other than me? You know what it's like now to be free Or you could be still thinking of me But it's only a fool's dream When I am here in this strange land alone It is you that is always on my mind Hoping that I will soon be with you Coming with riches plenty Returning home across the sea To make real our fool's dream United we'll be forever With our friends all around us to see How we were always meant to be To stay together you and me And it was never a fool's dream A home we will build together In the field overlooking the sea Where we'll have children plenty All will say it was plain to see That it never was a fool's dream
