Dream softly, my dear



Dream softly, my dear
mine eyes are wide shut.

You call mine name, it's all the same
we sleep to dream a great escape.

Dream softly, my dear
hearts shatter quickly.

Walk within my dream, lets team up
against the world's reality.

Dream softly, my dear
I am always near.

Give me your Poetry

Day after day I'm more confused
But I look for the light through the pouring rain
You know that's a gain that I hate to lose
Now I'm feeling the strain
Ain't it a shame?

Oh, give me the words girl to free my soul
I wanna get lost in your poetic role
And drift away

Give me the words girl and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your poetic console
And drift away

Beginning to think that I'm wasting time
I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
I'm counting on you
To carry me through

And when my mind is free you know your poetry can move me
And when I'm feeling blue your poetry's coming through to soothe me
Thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
Your rhythm and rhyme and harmony
You've helped me along
You're making me strong

Now now now won't you take me?
Oh oh take me
Fly high...
