"Velveteen" as written by Joe Mazzola, Mark P Dombroski, Timothy Rygiel and Michael Cross....
Delux
Sublime
Gigantic for all times
And space
I wish for you the stars
Bow down
I wish for you their infinite crown
In Velveteen
I will surround
With Velveteen
In your name
In Velveteen
I will surround

I'll keep this velvet
In your name
I'll keep this velvet
From the rain
So long, sleep well
Your purity speaks well
As you lay
With al these flowers
In your bed
With all these flowers
You had left to give away
In Velveteen
I will surround

In Velveteen
In your name
In Velveteen
I will surround
I'll keep this velvet
In your name
I'll keep this velvet
From the rain
