Only In Dreams


No candles to burn, sitting in the dark,
I hear things I've never heard before,
Like the beating of his heart,
Though we're so far apart,
And his tears as they fall to the floor

Now I hear a prayer, half-spoken, half-sung,
Handel's Messiah all over again;
There's so much passion,
Prayers said in this fashion
Will surely be answered.... Amen

I'm not quite sure what I'm hearing now -
I think he fell to his knees;
He's begging and pleading,
The same words, repeating:
Dear God, bring her back, oh please!

I've heard enough, I can't take anymore,
Who is this, torturing my mind?
Then my love and I awaken,
I'm confused, he is shaken,
He was dreaming that I left him behind

It was only a dream, just a dream, my love,
You know I'll never leave your side;
But he held me so near,
'Til the dawn appeared,
And out of joy, I softly cried
