      From the musical, "Brother John Reborn!"
        Dreams belong, like we belong
        To yesterday.

        Hey daydreamer, lay your head on my shoulder.
        The dream is over.

        Don't cry, it's okay. What they say,
        Fades away.

        Hey, daydreamer,when they say never
        believe and dream forever.

        Well, they say follow the rules, wishingwell fools.
        That's what they say.

        We can follow foolish dreams,
        Feelin' like a father and mother to them.

        Then tomorrow, oh, it seems
        Just like children, we will lose them.

        We don't mean to
        Do like children do. Like children...

        Daydreamer, even fools get older.
        Even you'll get over,

        This time, living a lie, you and I
        Stop cryin' for yesterday.

        Dreamer, we've followed some foolish dreams,
        Still feelin' like a father and a mother to them.

        Tomorrow's here and now it seems
        Just like children, we will lose them...

        Always losin' dreams belong, like we belong
        To yesterday.

        Dreamer, hey, what good are they,
        Today?
