Midsummer's Night's Dream

by Joni Mitchell

Midsummer rain, you and I together
I'm only dreaming again and I will forever it seems
Midsummer dawn, kisses in a doorway
I can't believe they are gone so
I live our story in dreams

But baby I always wake up lonely
Mornings don't comfort me
Sometimes I think you're only
A midsummer's night's dream

I should have know, friends gave me warning
You had a dream of your own
Now our midsummer mornings are through
Follow your star, it will lead you somewhere
Love is not really so far if in dream
I can come there to you

But baby I always wake up lonely
Mornings don't comfort me
Sometimes I think you're only
A midsummer's night's dream
