Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

(Brian Kennedy)
I dreamt that I dwelt in marble halls,
With vassals and serfs at my side,
And of all who assembled within those walls,
That I was the hope and the pride.
(Brian & Sinéad)
I had riches too great to count, could boast
Of a high ancestral name.
But I also dreamt, which pleased me most,
That you loved me still the same,
That you loved me, you loved me
Still the same,
That you loved me, you loved me
Still the same.
(Sinéad)
I dreamt that suitors saw my hand,
That knights upon bended knee
And vows no maiden heart could withstand,
They pledged their faith to me.
(Brian & Sinéad)
And I dreamt that one of that noble host
Came forth, my hand to claim.
But I also dreamt, which pleased me most,
That you loved me still the same,
That you loved me, you loved me
Still the same,
That you loved me, you loved me
Still the same.
