When I met you in the restaurant 
You could tell I was no debutante.
You asked me what's my pleasure
"A movie or a measure"?
I'll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreaming.
Dreaming is free.
I don't want to live on charity.
Pleasure's real or is it fantasy?
Reel to reel is living rarity.
People stop and stare at me, we just walk on by; we just
keep on dreaming.
Feet feet: walking a two mile.
Meet meet: meet me at the turnstile.
I never met him, I'll never forget him.
Dream dream: even for a little while.
Dream dream: filling up an idle hour.
Fade away, radiate.
I sit by and watch the river flow.
I sit by and watch the traffic go.
Imagine something of your very own; something you
can have and hold.
I'd build a road in gold just to have some dreaming.
Dreaming is free.

Other Info:
"GS:In your version of Blondie's "Dreaming," the main riff is rendered kind of atonally.  It
sounds like a guitar through some sort of random harmonizer program.  CORGAN:A ring
modulator, actually.  IHA:And I played an auto wah-wah part on that.  Just some patch in
some rack.  That was the name of the patch.  CORGAN:It went together with the ring
modulator surprisingly well.  If you listened to it on it's own, it sounded like crap, but with
the ring modulator, it was blissful" Source:Guitar School, February 1997.  D'arcy and Billy
Corgan both did vocal tracks for the song.  The vocal tracks were recorded at Kerry
Brown's studio at D'arcy and Kerry's farm house.
