Sweet Dreams

From The Elvis Costello Wiki

Sweet dreams of you, every night I go through
I should hate you girl, the whole night through
Instead of having sweet dreams all about you

You don't love me it's plain
I should have known you'd never share my name
Why can't I forget you girl, start loving someone new?
Instead of having sweet dreams all about you

Why can't I forget my past, start loving someone new?
Instead I'm having sweet dreams all about you

Sweet dreams of you, every night I go through
I should hate you girl, the whole night through
Instead I'm having sweet dreams all about you
