TOLD ME I WAS DREAMING-.
Copyright, 1889, by J. C. Groene & Co.
Words by Samuel Minturn Peck. Music by Walter A. Phillips.

The amber beams were flitting from meadow newly mown,
My love and I were sitting in the waning light alone;
I told her of my passion and the hope I had at stake,
She said that I was dreaming, she said that I was dreaming,
She said that I was dreaming, ah, let me never wake.

The mellow glow grew dimmer. I clasp'd her hand in mine,
The stars began to glimmer above the drowsy pine;
I said their beams were shining the brighter for her sake,
She told me I was dreaming, she told me I was dreaming,
She told me I was dreaming, ah, let me never wake.

I felt her fingers tremble, the tear drops I could see,
Her heart could not dissemble the love she bore for me;
I whispered, were you faithless, sweetheart, my heart would break,
If loving is but dreaming, ah, let me never wake,
If loving is but dreaming, ah, let me never wake.
