in this fading realm 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 tread into the night
And memory is painted white
A kiss will carry you away
And find us another place

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

But in the silence nothing stirs
Not a rising breath 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, only sleep
Only sleep, only sleep

If morning comes and all is quiet
A liftetime 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, only sleep
Only sleep, 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

I have to think, I must believe
That this is only sleep
Only sleep...
