Let Me Dream A While lyrics

Well, when the lights hang low

And I lay down and close my eyes

I see colours and spinning wheels

I hear a language I don't understand

I see people I've not seen for years

I hold a magic in my hands

I sing songs that I'll never write

'Cause they're gone by the morning light

Yes, and I dream away

And I'm as free as the summer sky

I swim in oceans turquoise and deep

I lay down in fields of gold

I see mountains snow-white and steep

Though I never feel the cold

I can't stay there, try as I might

'Cause it's gone by the morning light

So if you find that I'm sleeping

Soft and warm as a child

Would you just let me be

For a moment happy and free?

Oh, won't you please let me dream a while?

Yeah, when the night draws in

And I lay down to rest my head

I find boxes of photographs

And old movies I saw long ago

I can still hear my sister laugh

On the beaches in Mexico

Where the phosphorescence shines 'neath the moon

And a thousand stars that glow

But they always fade out so soon

To a place where I just can't go

Though I hold on to them so tight

They are gone by the morning light

So if you find that I'm sleeping

Soft and warm as a child

Won't you just let me be

For a moment happy and free?

Oh, won't you please let me dream a while?

Oh, won't you please let me dream a while?
