(bridge to start)
Please come out of your dreams
Come out of it and come into my arms
Castles in the air, will never get you anywhere
And there's a sentimental boy beside you
Waiting to hear that you care.
While the moonlight is bright, get into it
Make the most of this light
Tell me with a kiss
That's you're as thrilling as you seem
Oh please, come out of your dream.

Carl Sigman, an American, was a lyricist at heart, but in fact, did
write many song melodies during his career. Amongst them, he often wrote
songs for Glenn Miller and Guy Lombardo. Many of his more recent songs
are instantly recognizable
IT'S ALL IN THE GAMEMY HEART CRIES FOR YOUSHANGRI-LA and
WHERE DO I BEGIN
The latter two songs of course are an easy recall for most. The first,
as a reference to the 1937 'Utopia lost' Capra film, 'Lost Horizon'
(book by English writer James Hilton) and the second, the love them from
the 1970s hit film 'Love Story'.
Ruby Newman, an American and a Bostonian, was a big band leader musician
from the 1920s to the 1940s. He often played solo violin in his own
orchestra. He is perhaps most noted for his work, MY SILENT LOVE
from 1932. Reportedly, his band often did not contain a trumpet section.
Newman uniquely substituted strings instead.
