A Girl Can Dream


   Note: Original key is 1/2 step higher (Bbm)

   Intro: Am--E

   When I was a child the story would say
  D                              G
   Somebody will sweep you off your feet someday
   That's what I hoped would happen with you
  D                    G
   More than you could know

   I wanted to tell you that my heart's in your hands
  D                             G
   I prayed for the day that I would get the chance
   And just when I worked up the courage to try
  D                 G
   Much to my surprise
  F#m                 D
   You had somebody else
         C#m        D          E
   These feelings I keep to myself

        A               D
   I may never get to hold you so tight
         E                  F#m
   I may never get to kiss you goodnight
  D                       F#m
   I may never get to look deep in your eyes
   Or so it seems
        C#m                  D
   I always will be wishing you were mine
      E                      F#m
   I think about what could be all the time
  D                          F#m
   All the happiness that I could find
  E                  A
   Baby, a girl can dream

   From the moment I wake up til I fall asleep
  D                       G
   I imagine you not with her but with me
   Talking and laughing, sharing our dreams
  D                  G
   But it's just a fantasy
       F#m                  D
   Cause you have somebody else
          C#m        D          E
   These feelings I keep to myself

   (Repeat Chorus except last word)

        ... dream

  D              E
   A girl can dream it's true
  F#m                G#m
   And to call you my own
  C#m           D          E
   Is the sweetest dream I know

   Adlib: A-D-E-F#m

   (Repeat Chorus moving chords 1 step <B> higher)

   Coda: B-E-F#-Ebm-E-A-F#-B
