You come to me in times of need
When you can't find anyone
You seem to be much better off now
There's a rainbow number one

We could see life through the gutter then
Till it caused my heart to break
There was too much toil in dreamland
And too much love to take

Sometimes I remember when
We were all dressed up in style
I don't recall the gist of it all
But you drove the young men wild

You could wrap me around your finger
Till it caused my heart to break
There was too much toil in dreamland
And too much love to take

So, if you need me near you
You can do it if you choose
There was too much toil in dreamland
And too much love to lose

You make me do what you want me to do
Then you run the rules on me
You seem to be the wiser now
Could it be you've been deceived?

Anytime you felt like tryin'
You would cause my heart to break
There was too much toil in dreamland
And too much love to take

So, if you need me near you now
You can do it if you choose
There was too much toil in dreamland
And too much love to lose
