Verse:
How am I to bear this sep -a -ra -tion? Give me just a lit -tle hope to cling to,
Fan the flame of my im -ag -i -na -tion, So I can dream till we meet a -gain.
 
Chorus:
Give me a Kiss To Build A Dream On and my im -ag -i -na -tion will thrive up -on that kiss,
Sweet -heart I ask no more than this A Kiss To Build A Dream On.
Give me a kiss be -fore you leave me and my im -ag -i -na -tion will feed my hun -gry heart,
Leave me one thing be -fore we part A Kiss To Build A Dream On.
When I'm a -lone with my fan -cies I'll be with you,
Weav -ing ro -manc -es mak -ing be -lieve they're true.
Give me your lips for just a mo -ment and my im -ag -i -na -tion will make that mo -ment live,
Give me what you a -lone can give A Kiss To Build A Dream On.
