  • In the meeting place I sit beside, betwixt the points of heaven
    I befell a friendly atmosphere revolving around seven
    Oh, that number mystified my soul and captured within feelings
    Those of doubt and understanding, hand in hand they set me reeling

    Met me a stranger, he came here to town
    Bearing gifts full of promises, discoveries of light
    Said me many reasons why my merry tale
    Could be justified and just both together entwined

    I tell you a reason, he said, "Bless you, you fool, you fool"
    You want "so belief," yet you want so much more," you seeker
    Now I see you're baffled, yet again you administer fear
    Of the unexpected, you don't know the score

    Everywhere you look you release parts of your senses
    And everywhere there's purpose and answers to all your dreams
    I can hear you saying what a dreamer, what a fool to life
    Isn't it a pity that he won't come back to earth

    Haven't you imagination, and is it not available
    How you can be sooner or later than you're thinking
    Haven't you imagination and is it so impossible
    That you ask of everything so your eyes can see clearly

    So in an instant your story bound
    A desert, the underground, on mountains high
    A glacier, the heat of the day

    City jungle, the sky at night
    In space on a starry night
    An atmosphere impossible
    So you never really care

    So we talk about the strength of dreams
    And we talked at length of every dream
    And we talked about the strength of dreams
    And we talked about the strength of dreaming

    In the meeting place I sit beside, betwixt the points of heaven
    I befell a friendly atmosphere revolving around seven
    Oh, that number mystified my soul and captured within feelings
    Those of doubt and understanding, hand to hand they set me reeling

    In the seventh dream to stand alone
    But not without the strength of love
    To guide our way, everyday

    Oh, the seventh dream, your smile can bring
    Love on and on and time will flow forever clear
    The seventh dream standing so near
    And very soon we'll walk with love
    Love that I can sing to you, you, you

    Is it this time of day that makes me realise
    The sun is coming out to shine again tomorrow, tomorrow
    Is it this time of day that gives you hope

    Is it this time of times that comes between the light
    Are there so many dreamers in this life between a moment's time
    And the stairways of love, the starlight, the starlight
    Telling me that there's something else to cling on to, cling on to Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
