In my dream last night I held you close, hugged you tight, buried my face in your hair, felt the shape and warmth of your body close to mine and listened to your breathing as you were sleeping. It felt real and I was happy.
Now I wake from my dream, I wake from my dream to this world
Where all is shadow and darkness and above me a dark sky unfurls*
I find myself once more alone in my bed, tangled up in my blanket, only wishing to fall back into my dream of you. To return to that happy place. Finding it impossible, I rise to face a new day.
Ain’t nothin’ in this world I can do about it
All I’m thinkin’ about is you*
(*Lyrics from the songs Back In Your Arms and All I’m Thinkin’ About. Both are written by Bruce Springsteen)
