I had a dream last night
I dreamt you were mine
I dreamt I was happy
but it passed with time

I dreamt we had each other
and nothing else mattered
But as the sky began to brighten
the dream I dreamt was shattered

And as the day went on
I longed to be asleep
For in my dreams you needed me
and my wounds were not so deep

I long for the crescent moon
and fear the sun's light
For the day is full of empty promises
that are only fulfilled at night

So, if my mind seems somewhere else
and my eyes drift into space
Please do not disturb me...
...I'm longing for the dream I chase

And if my heart seems weary
and I'm lost in a different place
I'm only searching for the night
and the warmth of your embrace.
