Ronnie Milsap – Daydreams About Night Things Lyrics

I’m having day dreams bout night things
In the middle of the after-noon
And while my hands make a living my mind’s home loving you
I’m having day dreams about night things
In the middle of the after-noon
And every night you make my daydreams come true

Well all day long while I’m working in town
Time slows down to a crawl
When I’m not thinking about you I’m checking the clock on the wall
Then it’s goodbye factory and hello loving
There’s a smile across my face
Cause I’m back in the arms of your sweet love
Where my thoughts have been all day

I’m having day dreams bout night things
In the middle of the after-noon
And while my hands make a living my mind’s home loving you
I’m having day dreams about night things
In the middle of the after-noon
And every night you make my daydreams come true

Yea, Every night you make my day dreams come true.
