In Dreams




A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
"Go to sleep. Everything is all right."

I close my eyes, Then I drift away
Into the magic night. I softly say
A silent prayer,like dreamers do.
Then I fall asleep to dream
My dreams of you.

In dreams I walk with you.
In dreams I talk to you.
In dreams you're mine.
All of the time we're together
In dreams, in dreams.

But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone.
I can't help it, I can't help it, if I cry.
I remember that you said goodbye.

It's too bad that all these things, can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams
In beautiful dreams.

Pine


Let's be silent,
Beneath the shadow of the leaves,
Their feet dancing on our hands;
Our fingers entwined.
United.
In this gift of pain.
