Dreaming is free...

When I met you in the restaurant you could tell I was no debutante.
You asked me what's my pleasure, "A movie or a measure"?
I'll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreaming.
Dreaming is free.
I don't want to live on charity.
Pleasure's real or is it fantasy?
Reel to reel is living verite.
People stop and stare at me, we just walk on by; we just keep on dreaming.
Beat feet, walking a two-mile.
Meet me, meet me at the turnstile.
I never met him, I'll never forget him.
Dream dream: even for a little while.
Dream dream: filling up an idle hour.
Fade away, radiate.
I sit by and watch the river flow.
I sit by and watch the traffic go.
Imagine something of your very own; something you can have and hold.
I'd build a road in gold just to have some dreaming.
Dreaming is free.

Lyrics by Debbie Harry and Chris Stein.

A New Year's Eve Eve wedding beckons so I'm leaving you with this song Dreaming by Blondie that I've been blasting playing for the last few days. And because I love the video (from my new favorite site cause I miss music videos) here is Debbie Harry being her usual bad self. Reflections can wait for now.
