I'm leaving my dreams behind,
Because dreams don't pay the bills
I'm leaving my dreams behind,
Because dreams won't cook the meals
I'm leaving my dreams behind
Because dreams won't make the bed, wash the clothes, hoover the floor .
I'm leaving my dreams behind
Because dreams won't get me a job
I'm leaving my dreams behind,
Because dreams won't sit the exams for me
I'm leaving my dreams behind,
Because dreams won't get me through life
I'm leaving my dreams behind,
Because dreams never come true, anyway
I'm leaving my dreams behind,
Because why should I live with false hope.
I'm leaving my dreams behind,
Because I'm old, and it's too late to make them come true.
