Franks Theme

Dream away the tears in your eyes
Dream away your sorrows
Dream away all your goodbyes
Dream away tomorrow

I promise when the sun comes up
I promise I’ll be true
And just like before the band starts to play
They always play your favorite tune

And dream away when everyone’s gone
Dream away your grey skies too
Dream away and nothing is wrong
Dreams have wishes that are waiting for you

And up ahead the road is turning
Turning for you and me
And just like before the band starts to play
Now there’s that twinkle in your eye

And dream away
