My Reverie

My Reverie
Composer Claude Debussy
Lyricist Larry Clinton
Year Written 1890 (composition) 1938 (lyrics)


Our love is a dream
But in my reverie
I can see that this love
Was meant for me

Only a poor fool
Never schooled in the whirlpool
Of romance could be so cruel
As you are to me

My dreams
Are as worthless as tin to me
Without you
Life will never begin to be

So love me
As I love you in my reverie
Make my dream a reality
Let’s dispense with formality
Come to me in my reverie
