Larry Norman - Sweet Dreams lyrics

What about Cinderella and her glass shoe?

She lived happily ever after, yeah, but none of it is true.

What about King Midas, when everything turned to gold.

It's all right when we are children but not when we are old.



Sweet dreams. Sweet dreams. Sweet dreams.

Fading before the dawn.



Well just look at a photo of a man and a woman in a perfect world.

They got perfect teeth and lovely tans,

Such a beautiful boy and girl.

But they don't know each other, they only met today.

When the photographer took the picture

And said the check is on its way.



Sweet dreams. Sweet dreams. Sweet dreams.

Fading before the dawn.



Somebody creates an image and waits for us to buy

They got our life planned out

From the time we get our personal number

'Til the day we die.

Living in a fairy tale just doesn't make sense.

Grass ain't never greener baby, growing beyond the fence.



Sweet dreams. Sweet dreams. Sweet dreams.

Fading before the dawn.
