My Waking World



Oh it seems like only yesterday I walked across your shadow

You glanced, I smiled my life was there right in front of me

And when I took your hand and held it like there was no tomorrow

Angels are not of this world, nor are they meant to be



Come away with me to the waters and the wild

Come away if only for just a little while

I can't stay but you're forever in my heart and my mind

Come away before I have to open up my eyes to my waking world



While they say we dream to keep the ones we love a little closer

I slumber deep and drift away and there you are with me

And they also say that memories fade and nothing is forever

I know better 'cos true love lasts an eternity



Come away with me to the waters and the wild

Come away if only for just a little while

I can't stay but you're forever in my heart and my mind

Come away before I have to open up my eyes to my waking world



Where I take you in my arms

I long to hold you, watch my hopes and dreams unfold

Look so deep into your eyes, a blue million miles

You're safe and warm and I'll protect you, never let this world reflect

Now's your time so seize the moment, your stars have aligned



Come away with me to the waters and the wild

Come away if only for just a little while

I can't stay but you're forever in my heart and my mind

Come away before I have to open up my eyes to my waking world

My waking world
