DREAMS COME TRUE Lani Ford  2005 VERSE 1: Kelly ended up with the guy Kate was s‘posed to marry They have a little black dog and a brand new baby Kate lives uptown in her high-rise apartment She does alright as a mid-priced dominatrix CHORUS: And dreams come true Dreams come true Dreams come true What’s the matter with you If your dreams don’t come true VERSE 2: Kate takes a break on the back of a rich businessman While Kelly makes coffee for her man downtown The baby starts screamin’ and Kelly fades away She finds herself dreamin’ ‘bout where she could have been today CHORUS VERSE 3: Kelly cries breast-feeding, her man is still at work Kate does another line so she can spank some jerk Kelly got the prize and wonders what could have been While Kate closes her eyes to her degeneration CHORUS VERSE 4: Her husband has a boyfriend who he keeps secret A twenty-year-old kid who lives in Hell’s Kitchen Kate had called him queer, when he’d called her sleazy So he married Kelly cuz he thought it’d be easy And it goes round Round and Round Like a Merry-go-round It goes round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and Round BRIDGE: Well as is always the way Kelly got divorced and Kate overdosed And the man got away And another little girl is born To lose her way Cuz dreams don’t come true No dreams don’t’ come true Dreams don’t come true No matter what you do You know dreams can’t come true CHORUS
