In this fading hour
Of silent dreams
All falls quiet
In front of me

I have to think
I must believe
That this is only sleep

As the day has dried into the night
And memory is painted white
A kiss will carry you away
And find us in another place

Still, I want, again, to hold your hand
A moment more to understand
How much it means these little things
To savour one more smile

But in the silence
Nothing stirs
Not a rising breathe
To reassure
So I hang my head
And hold you close
For this is only sleep

And that’s the way
I watch the sky
With a simple prayer
To sail her by
I have to think
I must believe
That this is only sleep
Only sleep

If morning comes
And all is quiet
A lifetime dances
In my mind

But I have to think
I must believe
That this is only sleep

And that’s the way
I watch the sky
With a simple prayer
To sail her by
I have to think
I must believe
That this is only sleep
Only sleep
