MUSIC OF MY DREAMS

Just past midnight, while I sleep

A song drifts through my mind

As the moonlight bathes the sea

I hear a lullaby

Such sweetly blending beauty

Hear the angels sing

And I woke softly, pausing then

To hear the music of my dreams

Gentle harps and whistling flutes

Play on and on in my dreams

While the night wind cools my room

I search my memory

And hear a phantom serenade

Of haunting melody

Just listen, join me as we

Journey to the dawn

And I woke softly, pausing then

To hear the music of my dreams

Gentle harps and whistling flutes

Play on and on in my dreams

I dream of sun-bright ocean skies

And I hear mighty waves

Whispering their evening song

Proud music of the storm

Music, the music of my dreams

Only, I can hear it

Calling me, guiding me home

And I will always hear the song

Play on and on in my dreams

Play on and on in my dreams
