house of a thousand windows

 

i went looking for you

on some sort of stormy night

in a dream i found you,  grabbed your hand

and ran all the way back home – safe, there i was with you

*

your touch was nothing more than a dream

and when i woke,  fulfilled was hinted,  but still – im was alone

oh,  your touch was nothing more than real, but all  in a dream that faded

and before i woke,  our lips touched – left me in a torn seam

*

from a house of a thousand windows,  thousand doors

i sought your face that glowed in the oil lamp light burning bright

but all the drapes that were all drawn,  one by one i was there –  loving the thought that could have been

but all from a house of a thousand windows,  all i found were dreams

*

something that was so clear and real

became nothing but this dream;  oh! – where are you now

wasnt it all for a love that what would have been

from a house of a thousand windows,  thousand doors

i sought your face that glowed in the oil lamp light burning bright

but all the drapes that were all drawn,  one by one i was there –  loving the thought that could have been

but all from a house of a thousand windows,  all i found were dreams and images i awoke with

*

i went looking for you

on a,  some sort of stormy night

in a dream i found you,  grabbed your hand

and ran all the way back home – safe, there i was with you

and when i woke,  fulfilled was hinted,  but still – im was alone

oh,  your touch was nothing more than real in my soul,  but all was you in a dream that faded

but all that was you;  all in a dream that faded
