In the dream that awakened me
You had come and taken me
To a sea of stars, a cat stood in the flowers
Two ears above.
And the ground that was under me
Was holding me so wonderfully
On a bed of leaves, you were there with me
We were free.

Everything we saw
Was beautiful and strong
And I knew we belonged

Then the birds came and carried us
To the sky and buried us
On a bed of stars, where I was always yours
And you were mine.
And in the long, black eternity
I loved you so perfectly
On the words of clouds, like a bird sings to his flowers
And I was heard

Everything I saw
Was everything I want
And this world had just begun
To live!

Don't wake me up!
Don't wake me up!
Don't wake me up!
I can't get up, from this.

Everyone was forgiving
Made hope for, made living
Made women, tonight

So captain please consider me
Let the boats deliver me
When I close my eyes...drive, captain, drive!
It's time.
For everything to be perfect
For everything to stop hurting
Tonight.

Don't wake me up!
Don't wake me up!
Don't wake me up!
Don't wake me up...
