For dreams will hold us
in the arms of night
Leaving behind what's done
in the light
And time that passes while
Forever near my heart you keep
So as the darkness
overwhelms my sight
Shadows begin to dance
The music that begins inside my heart
The questions are given there chance
A world beyond complication
Devours me in its wave
The night embraces my hopes and fears
To give me strength for another day.
If only starlight was enough
to give the world its life
and every "good night" strong enough
to carry us through the night.
So as I'm held there in my dreams
a soft and gentle state
I give myself to deepening salvation
Where nothings as it seems
Good night to every tear I've shed
I release all fear and hurry
Fall gently into this comforting bed
Where I no longer have to worry.
