B                     C#m
 I sat alone with the dreams of children
B                    C#m
 Weeping willows and tall dark buildings and,
B                              C#m
 I've caught a vision from the dreams of children,
B                             C#m
 But woke up sweating to this modern nightmare and,
B        C#m B   E      C#m
 I was alo - ne, no one was there,
B        C#m B   E
 I was alo - ne, no one was

B                            C#m
 I caught a glimpse from the dreams of children
B                   C#m
 I got a feeling of optimism
B                          C#m
 But woke up to a grey and lonely picture
B                          C#m
 The streets below left me feeling dirty and,
B        C#m B   E      C#m
 I was alo - ne, no one was there
B        C#m B   E
 I was alo - ne, no one was there
