Verse:
Tho' the days are long, Twilight sings a song,
Of the happiness that used to be;
Soon my eyes will close, Soon I'll find repose,
And in dreams you're always near to me.
 
Chorus:
I'll See You In My Dreams,
Hold you in my dreams,
Someone took you out of my arms,
Still I feel the thrill of your charms.
Lips that once were mine,
Tender eyes that shine,
They will light my way tonight,
I'll See You In My Dreams.
