Dressed in dreams for me, you were what I wished to see, Elizabeth, Elizabeth

Love was very new, make believe was coming true, Elizabeth, Elizabeth

You were all much too much, out of reach and out of touch

When you came to me, I found it could never be, Elizabeth, Elizabeth, Elizabeth

So a dream has to end when it's real, not pretend, dressed in memories

You are what you used to be, Elizabeth, Elizabeth, Elizabeth
