Every heart has got a story
About love holding out a lure
Baby, when you've been that lonely
You just want a cure

Fool you once, you are forgiven
Fool you twice, you're just a fool
You fear the futures all been written
By the past and what didn't last

Oh the better to dream of you
The better to be this side of heaven
Believing again when a dream comes true
The better to dream of you

Every story's got a chapter
And that chapter will be defined
By what's before and what comes after
This one is mine

Everything that came before us
Wore me out and weighed me down
You raised me up like a gospel chorus
Rock steady on solid ground

The better to dream of you
The better to be this side of heaven
Believing again some dreams come true
The better to dream of you

Like an old time tent revival
I felt my heart come back alive
No preacher baby, no bible
Just this love to testify

Oh, the better to dream of you
The better to be this side of heaven
Believing again some dreams come true
The better to dream of

The better to dream of you
Yeah, stranger things they might have happened
Believing again that dreams come true
The better to dream of

The better to dream of you
The better to be this side of heaven
Believing again some dreams come true
The better to dream of you
