These Dreams Heart

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 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 it's cold outside
    Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away

Is it clock 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

The sweetest song is silence
That I've ever heard
Funny how your feet in dreams never touch the earth
In a world full of princes
Freedom is a kiss
But the prince(ss) hides his face
From dreams in the mist
