Beautiful Dreamer

I saw her dancing under the moon
I heard her singing a simple tune
All through the nighttime into the dawn
But nobody told me until she was gone

That she was a dreamer just passing through
Beautiful dreamer may your dreams all come true

In this day and age she looked so out of place
Standing there staring deep into space
My brother told me "She's a dying breed"
But my father said "She's what this world really needs"

She was a dreamer just passing through
Beautiful dreamer may her dreams all come true

Some say she's crazy, some say she's blessed
Other's will tell you she's just not like the rest
With her head in the clouds and her hair flowing free
There's not too many left, she's a rare sight to see

She was a dreamer just passing through
Beautiful dreamer may your dreams all come true
