lyrics

I dreamt that I was flying, so high above the fields
Far above this earthly spinning and the winding of its wheels
I started drifting higher when something caught my eye
The sunlight on a steeple and the people passing by
And shining there among them like the breaking of the day
Was the face of one familiar who I’d thought had gone away
Just at that same moment the sun released its rays
And she turned her eyes towards heaven, and held me in her gaze

Won’t you meet me in the middle, we can fill up empty air
We can walk and talk together, see if we end up somewhere

The first time that I saw her, it was at the harvest ball
She was standing with her father, though I saw him not at all
Her beauty fairly drew me like the tide pulled from the shore
And I held my hand out to her, and we stepped on to the floor
CHORUS

The angels have a ballroom where the dancing never ends
And they twirl and glide forever with the grace that true love lends
In my dream we joined them on that dance floor in the clouds
And though I’m wide awake now, I can hear those notes ring out


I spend my days alone now, and I write my simple songs
But I sing each one in hopes that someone hears and sings along
You’ll pass as I am leaving, and we’ll stop to share the glow
And I’ll still feel you beside me as I go
CHORUS
