Spare a little candle
Save some light for me
Figures up ahead
Moving in the trees
White skin in linen
Perfume on my wrist
And the full moon that hangs over
These dreams in the mist
Darkness on the edge
Shadows where I stand
I search for the time
On a watch with no hands
I want to see you clearly
Come closer than this
But all I remember
Are the dreams in the mist
These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when its cold outside
Every moment Im awake the further Im away

Is it cloak n dagger
Could it be spring or fall
I walk without a cut
Through a stained glass wall
Weaker in my eyesight
The candle in my grip
And words that have no form
Are falling from my lips

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when its cold outside
Every moment Im awake the further Im away

Theres something out there
I cant resist
I need to hide away from the pain
Theres something out there
I cant resist
The sweetest song is silence
That Ive ever heard
Funny how your feet
In dreams never touch the earth
In a wood full of princesses
Freedom is a kiss
But the princes hides her face
From dreams in the mist

(Lyrics from an old 70’s song)

    i picked my fav lines

    Perfume on my wrist
    And the full moon that hangs over
    These dreams in the mist
    Darkness on the edge
    Shadows where I stand
    I search for the time
    On a watch with no hands

    this is truly mind blowing and heart yearning

  4. you have won an award, visit me 😀

  5. Heart did some great songs, back in the day. I always did like this one.
    I haven’t seen these lyrics for many years….they are lovely.
    The last stanza may seem awkward in writing, but Annie Wilson did it just right.
