A lullaby for dreamers

Text: Sib Machat, 2002
Music: Mich Sampson, 2002

My old guitar’s my friend in times like these –
give me one more good-night kiss, then we’re off
off on a fancy flight with unicorns and dragons,
to meet Jedi knights, elves, and princesses in love.

Gently my tunes on night air float
softly, lest I disturb the tired sleepers dream
they are my magic, softly wrought
taking you to places I have never seen.

For in your dreams you can ride dawns mighty horses
can play with Elves, or just fly free
can be the captain of your dreamship
all of Earth’s magic there for you to see.

    Touch a dragons wings, swim with the dolphins
catch a falling star, join Pegasus in flight.
Wherever your imagination may take you
Let my songs be your guardians tonight.

 For me and my guitar are left here, chords fading softly
silence will reign now that sleep has stolen you away
Yes, so I am a star and many love my playing
but never have I loved it more than in this moment, this today.

     Touch a dragons wings, swim with the dolphins
catch a falling star, join Pegasus in flight.
Wherever your imagination may take you
Let my songs be your guardians tonight.
