lyrics

Anticipating and painting
The colors we couldn't be sure.
But when you made it, the waiting,
Was worth every minute and more.
We'll be by your side to comfort you
When you feel blue we'll lead you through
And when the moon starts calling for you

We'll say goodnight and sleep tight
Put the world beneath your pillow
Fold your hands, say your prayers
Let a million dreams surround you
Close your eyes and be still
Think of old familiar faces
And places that you want to go
And then go.

If an invasion of raisins should corner your toys on the floor
Escape on a spaceboat of old coats that we just don't wear anymore
Circle the moon, travel far on shooting stars
Pretend the bulb is a sun inside the ceiling
And smile.

And we'll say goodnight and sleep tight
Put the world beneath your pillow
Fold your hands, say your prayers
Let a million dreams surround you
Close your eyes and be still
Think of old familiar faces
And places that you want to go
And then go.
