Intro -x2-: Am  G  F  E

Verse:
Am                 G
In real life I'm waking up alone.
      F                   E
It's one more night you didn't make it home.
Am                     G                  F    E
And one more time you won't pick up the phone.
Am                 G
In real life you never bring me flowers.
 F                 E
When you're here, it's only for an hour.
Am                    G          F   E
I'm getting used to being on my own.
            Am               G
Because in real life you're not what I thought.
 F                E
Real life, this isn't what I want.
 Am                    G               F   E
Guess things aren't always what they seem.

Chorus:
             C
But in my dreams, I'm waking up to roses,
   Am                               C
Champagne, kisses and I know it's always, always
            F
Gonna be, gonna be this way.
        C
In my dreams, you're standing right beside me.
Am
Two hearts finally colliding.
 C                             F                  Am
Then I wake up and realize, realize this is real life.

Interlude -x2-: Am  G  F  E

Verse:
Am                G
In real life it doesn't always work out.
F                E
People fall in love and then they fall out.
 Am                    G            F    E
Hearts can break and never make a sound.
            Am               G
Because in real life you're not what I thought.
 F                E
Real life, this isn't what I want.
 Am                    G               F   E
Guess things aren't always what they seem.

Verse:
             C
But in my dreams, I'm waking up to roses,
   Am                               C
Champagne, kisses and I know it's always, always
            F
Gonna be, gonna be this way.
        C
In my dreams, you're standing right beside me.
Am
Two hearts finally colliding.
 C                             F                  Am
Then I wake up and realize, realize this is real life.

Bridge:
Am                            G
Just when I thought this was all real life could be,
   F                                     E
Somebody came along and made my dream reality.


             C
And now in real life, waking up to roses,
   Am                               C
Champagne, kisses and I know it's always, always
            F
Gonna be, gonna be this way.
        C
In my dreams, he's standing right beside me.
Am
Two hearts finally colliding.
 C                               F                  Am
Then I wake up and I realize, realize this is real life.
