Innocent When You Dream

The bats are in the belfry, the dew is on the moor
Where are the arms that held me and pledged to love before
And pledged to love before

And it’s such a sad old feeling
All of the fields are soft and green
And it’s memories that I’m stealing
But you're innocent when you dream, when you dream
You are innocent when you dream

I made a golden promise that we would never part
I gave my love a locket and then I broke her heart
And then I broke her heart

And it’s such a sad old feeling
All of the fields are soft and green
And it’s memories that I’m stealing
But you're innocent when you dream, when you dream
You are innocent when you dream

We're running through the graveyard and we laughed, my friends and I
We swore we’d be together until the day we died
Until the day we died

And it’s such a sad old feeling
All of the fields are soft and green
And it’s memories that I’m stealing
But you're innocent when you dream, when you dream
You are innocent when you dream

And it’s such a sad old feeling
All of the fields are soft and green
And it’s memories that I’m stealing
But you're innocent when you dream, when you dream
You are innocent when you dream
