Magic... moments
There're the things I will remember
Where's the time we spent together... laughing
Then you walk into my dream... dear

And I see your face
Young and so free, smiling at me
So long since I've... had you near

Now you've come back again
Where the love never ends
And you're right here
When I think of you

When I... need you, I just close my eyes
And you're... here
Right beside me when I'm lost in... shadows
Of the memories of you... oh my dear

And I see your face
Young and so free, smiling at me
In your eyes I walk without fear
We're together again
Where the love never ends
'Cause you're right here
When I think of you

Hold on... just for a while
Hold on... hold on

I try to forget the night that you left
It's all so unreal, with you gone
I can dream once again...
Where the love never ends
'Cause you're right here
When I think of you
When I think of you
When I think of you

    General CommentSong makes me cry. It's so powerful just to hear that those you've loved can be right there beside you when you just imagine them.

    Song MeaningSteve Perry wrote this song after having a dream about his mother sometime after her death. In the dream, she was working in a gift shop, happy and smiling at him. Maybe the dream was her gift to her son and the world - the inspiration for this beautiful song. I love the inflections of his voice on the line, "It's so unreal with you gone." It shows such emotion. I think the line, "Hold on just for a while" is the feeling you get when you start waking up from a dream about a loved one you wish you could be with again; you realize you were dreaming but you just want to go back to sleep and be with them a little longer. Beautiful!
