Does anybody happen to have the lyrics to the Ralph Mctell song, Dreams of You, which is sung to a tune based on Jesu, Joy of Mans Desiring.

Cheers!

Here's all I was able to find: "Dreams of You" was release as a single in 1975 and is available on Ralph McTell's CD "A Collection of His Love Songs." It was also previously released on "Bridge of Sighs," 1986, "The Very Best of Ralph McTell," 1988, "Affairs of the Heart," 1989.

I also found these quotes:

"And if love is good, then how come it hurts so much?
I long for your kiss, your body, your sweet touch."

"Dreams of you, baby, are driving me crazy."

Dreams of You
Ralph McTell

How can I bear it?
Knowing you're here
Whilst I'm here and not there
And I'm nowhere and everywhere
Dreaming of you

Chorus
I dream of you baby
It's driving me crazy
These dreams of you

And how can I hope to
Do what I'm supposed to?
When all that I want
When all that I need
Is just to be close to you

And if love is good
Then how come it hurts so much
I long for your smile
I long for your smile
Your body, your sweet touch

The dreams I've had baby
Are driving me crazy
How much can I stand?
Like an old tune that haunts me
It's driving me crazy

But morning must come soon
And dreams like an old tune
That's been round my brain
Will finally leave me
When you're in my arms again

Lovely song,

Paul

Ooops,

The 2nd line of the 1st verse should be:

Knowing you're there

doesn't make much sense otherwise *grin*
