“I Have Dreamed” LYRICS

Lun Tha:
I have dreamed
That your arms are lovely,
I have dreamed
What a joy you’ll be.

I have dreamed
Every word you’ll whisper
When you’re close,
Close to me.

How you look
In the glow of evening
I have dreamed
And enjoyed the view.

In these dreams I’ve loved you so
That by now I think I know
What it’s like to be loved by you—
I will love being loved by you.

Tuptim:
Alone and awake
I’ve looked at the stars,
The same that smiled on you;
And time and again
I’ve thought all the things
That you were thinking too.

I have dreamed
That your arms are lovely,
I have dreamed
What a joy you’ll be.

I have dreamed
Every word you’ll whisper
When you’re close,
Close to me.

How you look
In the glow of evening
I have dreamed
And enjoyed the view.

In these dreams I’ve loved you so
That by now I think I know—

Both:
What it’s like to be loved by you—
I will love being loved by you.
