I dreamed of Louisiana
And a night in Lafayette
We had breakfast with Susanna
We were young and wild and left

Whats different here
Than in that dream and in reality
Is we werent afraid to fail in love
And we all believed in the dream
Before, before

I dreamed of Manhattan
In a time before this war
It was snowing down on Bleeker Street
It was before you were a star

Whats different here
Than in that dream and in reality
Is we werent afraid to fail in love
And we all believed in the dream
Before, before

Now everything is twilight
Its a time too dark to see
Its fear of being what we were
And pondering the dream

Then I dreamed of Texas
And the Gulf Coast shores
I dreamed of who we used to be
And the hope we had before

Whats different here
Than in that dream and in reality
Is we werent afraid to fail in love
And we all believed in the dream
Before, before
