Dream Dancers

space-dance1Another one Mike cleverly turned into a whimsically innocent & simple (if a little cheesy :D) song. Originally, I’d been playing with the idea of astral travel & wanted to write a response to Queen’s ‘Dreamers Ball‘, & this emerged. I had to add a bit of repetition, which while it made it work as a song, I think spoilt it as a poem a little, this is the poem version reconstructed as best I remember it.

Dream Dancers

Go to sleep and I’ll call on you,
Take you wherever you want to go.
We’re going dream dancing.
See the world through your minds eye,
Looking down from beyond the sky,
We’re going sleep romancing.

To the stars, or across the sea,
Doesn’t matter, if you’re with me,
When we go dream dancing.
Through the power of unconscious minds,
We’ll be together ‘cross distance and time,
When we go sleep romancing.

Want to seduce you through your dreams,
Take you places you’ve never seen,
I’m taking you dancing.
You’re still his in your waking hours,
In your sleep with magic-like power,
I’m taking you sleep romancing.

Go to sleep and I’ll call on you,
Take you wherever you want to go.
See the world through your minds eye,
Looking down from beyond the sky,
We’re going dream dancing,
We’re going sleep romancing…

(I recently found out the Cole Porter wrote a song called ‘Dream Dancing‘ & Ella Fitzgerald has an album of the same name (which it appears on), but this has nothing to do with either, I guess it has a very similar theme though.)

See you, in the night sky.
See you, in my mind.
Light-years, come between us.
But I’m still waiting for a sign.

(And you’re) Calling, calling me home.
Calling, calling me home.

Feel you, in my mem’ries.
Feel you, so near but far away.
Day light, comes between us.
Waiting ‘til the end of day.

Red to green to blue to gold.
Watch the spectrum above unfold.
Touch my heart, warm my soul.
No longer alone, No longer cold.

Hear you, in the midnight.
Hear you, ‘cross the time.
Listening, for the echoes.
Watch, as I lay back to recline.

(And you’re) Calling, calling me home.
Calling, calling me home.

Watch me, shine above me.
Watch me, in my dreams.
Waiting, for the moment.
But eons pass, least that’s how it feels.

Red to green to blue to gold.
Watch the spectrum above unfold.
Touch my heart, warm my soul.
No longer alone, No longer cold.

Heaven Can Wait

002153-sb1I particularly like this one.

Heaven Can Wait

Too much to do,
Too much to see,
Too much to feel,
Too much to be.

I’ve tried things your way,
But now is the time,
To loosen the shackles,
& show you mine.

Too many horizons,
To set compass for,
Unchartered seas,
Beg to explore,
(Swim out passed the shallows,
& kick from the shore.)

Feel the wind at my back,
Salt on my tongue,
Chasing the sunrise,
‘Til this day is done.

Follow the porpoise,
As he leaps at the bows,
Dive in behind him,
& follow him down.
Down into blue silence –
Sing with grey whales,
No-one is there,
Our dreams to curtail.

Then back to the surface,
Lungs bursting to breathe,
Take off – follow the seagull,
& do as we please.

But feel free to join us,
As we swoop & we soar,
Back over the shallows,
& head in for shore.

Too much to do,
Too much to see,
Too much to feel,
Too much to be.
– Heaven can wait.

(Nothing to do with either this, or this which are both great in their own rights)
