With My Eyes Wide Open I’m Dreaming

Words by Mack Gordon and Music by Harry Revel

With my eyes wide open I’m dreaming
Can it be true I’m holding you close to my heart?
With my eyes wide open I’m dreaming
You’re with me now sharing a vow never to part

I’m so afraid to close my eyes
Afraid that I’ll find
This lovely thrill
Is just a silly illusion

With my eyes wide open I’m dreaming
Do I deserve such a break?
Pinch me to prove I’m awake
I can’t believe that you’re really mine

Introduced in the film “Shoot the Works” with Jack Oakie and Dorothy Dell
Recorded by Ruth Etting in February 1934
