Lyrics

  • I guess I'll always be a dreamer
  • Dreaming my life away, dreaming my life away
  • A romantic fool, that's what I am
  • I think about you, all day long
  • Though it's impossible, for us together
  • Oh it's not real, a love I can't feel
  • Guess I'll always be a dreamer
  • Dreaming my life away, dreaming my life away
  • I just can't wait, till I go to sleep
  • I'll be with you, all night long
  • Circumstances held me in a terrible face
  • It's fantasy, I just like to share these moments together
  • Guess I'll always be a dreamer
  • Dreaming my life away, dreaming my life away
  • And nothing comes but sleep, to a dreamer
  • And when you wake up the dream is gone away
  • Guess I'll always be a dreamer
  • Dreaming my life away, dreaming my life away
  • Guess I'll always be a dreamer
  • Dreaming my life away, dreaming my life away

Interview

Cited by Michael in an interview in 1977 as one of his favourite tracks from the album to sing. "I felt they (Gamble & Huff) could have written it with me in mind," said Michael. "I have always been a dreamer. I set goals for myself. I look at things and try to imagine what is possible, and then hope to surpass those boundaries."
