A beautiful dream, once more

1.
And so it is, just like you said it would be…
life goes easy on me…most of the time…
…and I can’t take my mind off of you…

My love, please come, reach out for me, once more
show me that I still live within your heart, your mind

2.
Clue number one was when you knocked on my door…
…and it may be wrong, but it sure feels right…
…whatever comes it will be all right…

Take my hand, draw me closely into you, embrace me warmly
steer me, dance me along the edges of dark canals in starry moonlight

3.
Dance me through the panic…
…be my homeward dove…
…let me feel you moving…dance me to the end of love

Shelter me within your safety, protect me from the world’s cruel spaces
Let me feel your heartbeat in my palm, whisper your breath into my hair

4.
Drinking in the morning sun…
…What made me behave that way…
…using words I never say…

Listen to these treasured tunes, revealing secrets that we share
let the sounds resonate sweetly within our souls, let it strum our sacred cords

5.
…Kiss me like we die tonight…
Only now I see the light…
…Throw those curtains wide…

Conjure again, magnificent memories of pleasures that remain
remember images, feelings, allow the rush of blood through veins

6.
Your words in my memory are like music to me…
And miles from where you are, I lay down on cold ground…
And I pray that something picks me up, set me down in your warm arms…

Assure me that we are alive, skins still warmed by the other’s touch
promise me that we will survive, adrift in this vast and godforsaken ocean

7.
We’d share each other like an island
Until exhausted close our eyelids…
…A joy you can’t keep in…

Let’s repeat our flights of fantasy, let them swell within your core
revive moments of ecstactic bliss, fill pages with fairytales shared, once more

8.
If you want a lover, I’ll do anything you ask me to….
If you want a partner, take my hand….
Here I stand…

Find me, feel me, fill me, the way only you know how to do
Know me, need me, want me, love me, the same way you did before

9.
I find a map and draw a straight line…
…the distance from me to where you’d be..
I touch the place where I’d find your face…

My love, will you come, reach out for me, once more
show me that I still live within your heart, your mind

10
Find me here…I want to feel you…I need to hear you
you are the light to my soul…you calm the storms…give me rest…

I am here, drifting, dreaming, such a beautiful dream
come, wake me, create for us, yet another beautiful day

11.
I & love & you
