TITLE: These Dreams
Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 4]

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

/ Em - Am D / / C - Em - / C G Am - C DG / 

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

... / C G Am - Em C / 

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

/ D C G C / :

Is it cloak and 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


There's something out there I can't resist
I need to hide away from the pain
There's something out there I can't resist

/ C - G - / D - C G / C - C G /

The sweetest song is silence that I've never heard
Funny how your feet in dreams never touch the earth
In a wood full of princes, freedom is a kiss
But the prince hides his face from dreams in the mist
