If There Was A Man

If there was a man I could dream of,
I'd dream about a dream come true.
If there was a man I could ever love,
I'd wait a million years for someone just like you.

All my life I've been belated,
Never taking any chances, always hesitating.
Where's the pay-off? Where's the glory?
Where's the one I'm holding out for?
Why's he walking through the door, the one that you walk through?
If he isn't you?

If there was a man I could dream of,
I'd dream about a dream come true.
If there was a man I could ever love,
I'd wait a million years for someone just like you.

Happy endings never find me,
I put all my fantasies and hopes of love behind me.
Saw my moment overdoomed, but,
If there was a man out there for me,
I wish it would be someone who could love me too,
If someone was you.
