Drift Away Oh Dreamer

Do you lie awake at night,
Dreaming of ghosts unseen?
Do you feel the thirst for life
Suffocating in-between?

Starlight drifts across the mind
Forging fleeting thoughts.
Dare you step and peek inside?
What madness hath such stars wrought?

Drift away oh dreamer,
Caught up in waves of love.
Drift away with her,
The divine and sweet beloved.

Star-shine and moonlight
Kiss between the clouds.
Beware the solemn, aching nights,
And the darkness that seeks to shroud.
