"Waltz Away Dreaming" is a 1997 pop ballad by Irish singer-songwriter Toby Bourke and British singer-songwriter George Michael. It was released on May 1997 in the United Kingdom as the lead single to Bourke's 2000 album Room 21. It became a top ten hit for Michael, charting at number ten in the UK Singles Chart, staying on the charts for four weeks and remains Bourke's only hit. This is because of Michael's own label Aegean was folded until 2004, when his comeback album Patience came out.

"Waltz Away Dreaming" remains one of the few non-album singles to have not appeared in any of Michael's studio albums nor compilation albums. However, it did eventually appear in the cassette and MiniDisc versions of his greatest hits album Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best of George Michael in 1998. A music video was made for the single. The single was slightly remixed by Tim Hammill in 1999 and was released as "Waltz Away Dreaming '99" in Europe.
