  • I dreamed last night about your face
    Your star shone all night
    Over the moon it shone brighter
    Star shining so bright

    You were so pure not for this world
    So gentle and light
    How could I hear their stories
    They told me not right?

    Too many times beautiful
    Too many times sad
    Too many times wonderful
    Too bad

    But when the party was over
    And all was quiet and still
    We walked together in the moonlight
    And looked down over the calm lake
    Hand in hand, the stars in our eyes

    So in my dream you still loved me
    Gave time reason last night
    But this was only life's story
    Made simple that's right
