I found three songs with that title:

Just A Dream
written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Chorus
Was it just a dream?
Did I feel your devotion?
Dreams are never what they seem
Did we just go through the motions?
 
I keep your photograph by my bed to remind me
That I was part of your life
I say my prayers to the sandman
That he'll find me fast asleep
 
Sleep has always been kind
And in my dreams you'll always be mine
But in the morning when I wake
I remember that my heart does ache
 
(chorus, repeat)
 
I admit that I did my bit to deceive you
But sometimes I was afraid
That this day would come
How could you just leave me all alone now
 
I have always been strong
So I know that I can go on
But right now I feel so dead inside
Oh sleep come to me, cause that's where I hide
 
(chorus, repeat)
 
All that I have, all I ask
All my dreams, they fade so fast
Don't wake me up, not today
All my dreams will fade away
 
And I want him, and I need him
I can't live and I'd die just to see him
Just to feel his hands on my face
Smell his skin, and his warm embrace
Cause it's all that I have
And it's fading so fast
 
Mmmm, mmmm
Uh, uh huh
 
Now I have always been strong
So I know that I can go on
But right now I feel so dead inside
Oh sleep come to me, cause that's where I hide
 
(chorus, repeat)
 
All that I have, all that I ask
All my dreams, they fade so fast
Don't wake me up, not today
All my dreams will fade away
 
[Was it just a dream?]
And I want him, and I need him
I can't live and I'd die just to see him
Don't wake me up, not today
All my dreams will fade away
 
[Was it just a dream?]
All that I have, all that I ask
All my dreams, they fade so fast
Don't wake me up, not today
All my dreams will fade away
(repeat and fade)

Just a Dream
Words and Music b y Van Boersma ) Copyright August 8, 1992

I think I need a car. I know it's bizarre,
But, I always walk so far to get to where you are.
I cannot play a guitar. So, I guess I'll just get a car.
 
I really need a phone, Even though, I'm never home.
My hair is never combed, But, I feel so all alone.
I'm always pretty stoned. Time to get a phone.
 
If you had half a brain, You'd see right through the lines
And, give me just five minutes alone with you. But, I don't have the money,
Even though I've loads of time. I'm spending all of it to say I want you.
 
Gotta get a job, and stop bein' such a slob.
I'm tired of gettin' robbed by the clean and wealthy mob.
I used to feel defeated, so, I'd lay down and sob.
 
Like all those times when thoughts of you would cloud a peaceful sleep,
I'd imagine us walking hand in hand in hand. And, you would turn your head to me
And flash those emerald eyes. But, then again, I guess it's only a dream.

JUST A DREAM
Cara Jones and Toshiki Nakada

I heard you call my name
Though it was just a dream I swear it felt the same
My body remembers how you held me tight
I never felt a love so right
You say we've grown apart, you knew it from the start
How could you keep it in, how could you break my heart?
And leave me waiting for a miracle to save me from a lifetime without you
The day when you call my name and it no longer is
Just a dream
 
You used to treat me right
Promised me everything and held me through the night
But now it is clear our love was not what it seemed
I never had a sweeter dream
And now you've come and gone and I'm here all alone
Just waiting by the phone since you broke this happy home
But I never thought I'd need a miracle to save me from a lifetime without you
Oh when will you call my name and it no longer is
Just a dream

This is transcribed from Bert Jansch's CD "When the Circus Comes to Town" nice song but a lesson in elocution it's not, and there may be some errors here.

JUST A DREAM
(Jansch)

Walking along on a summer day,
When I met a man, going the other way,
Said what happened to you my friend,
How do you do today?
He looked so pale, his face was drawn,
He said my friend I wish I'd never been born,
I'm a looking for my long lost soul,
I had it only yesterday.
Now there was a time, when I could build a ship,
I'd build it proud and strong,
On the seven seas it would sail along,
And now it's only just a dream.

I met a woman on the same highway,
I looked in her eye but she turned away,
I said what happened to you my friend,
How do you do today?
She said in this land there's a place for me,
A paradise and the water comes free,
Or is it just a crazy dream
That's floating outside my head.
Now there was a time, we would stand and fight,
Instead of turning,
Let our voices sing, proud in harmony,
And now it's only just a dream.

Hand in hand came a boy and girl,
This is the tune, she sang a song,
I said what happened to you my friend,
How do you do today?
Well we don't know what we should learn,
What books to keep, what books to burn,
What a funny old world this is,
It's changing from day to day.
And there was a time,
When it was right and wrong,
It was black and white,
It was easier, to get along,
Now it's only just a dream.
