Lovely to know the warmth
Your smile can bring to me.
I want to tell you,
But the words you do not know.
Sing me a lullaby
Of songs you cannot write
And I will listen for there's beauty
Where there's love.

And in the morning of my life,
And in the evening of my day
I will try to understand in what you say.

Rivers of endless tides
Have passed beneath my feet
And all too soon they had me
Standing on my own.

Then, when my eyes were closed,
You opened them for me
And now we journey through our lives
To what will be.

And in the morning of my life,
And in the evening of my day
I will try to understand
In what you say

Through all that life can give to you
Only true love will see you through
And we'll stand beside you now
In what you say.

And in the morning of my life,
And in the evening of my day
I will try to understand
In what you say

Take me into your world,
Alone I cannot go
For I've been here so long.
You're leaving me behind.
Walk with me now
Into your land of fairy tales
And open up that book of pages in my mind
And open up that book of ages in my mind
And open up that book of pages in my mind
And open up that book of ages in my mind...
