Oak Ridge Boys – Dream On Lyrics

Lay your head down on my shoulder
I won’t let the night get colder
I’ll protect you, I’ll be keepin’
Trouble far from where you’re sleepin’.

Until you wake in the mornin’
You’ve got the world to yourself.

Dream on
Dream about the world we’re gonna live in one fine day
Dream on
Spent the night in heaven I’ll be here to light your way.
Someday tomorrow we’ll smile
But little girl in the meanwhile
Dream on.

You’re a princess chains around you
I’m a hero who just found you
‘Til a brand new day must wake you
Let imagination take you

Go where the music is playing
I’ll be along in awhile.

[Chorus]
