Def Leppard – Misty Dreamer lyrics

The sun that is rising is glistening down on the hill
The pool of confusion is silently still
The thoughts of another keep runnin' through my mind
As I search for the answer, it's never easy to find

The prophet stood on the hill and firmly he gripped his sword
As the angels of wisdom were singing a heavenly chord
So I look back and wonder if I should be asking for more
As a traveller in limbo who's washed up onto the wrong shore

In the morning when I wake up
And the story starts to break up
Then it's plain to see
What's wrong with me
So the curtains they are drawn back
And my mind is simply torn back
To reality, you see, to me, I'm just a misty dreamer

I slipped by the waterslide
And I thought I heard my true love screamin'
So I opened my eyes and shook my head
And I realized I was only dreamin'

So close your eyes and drift away
Tomorrow seems like yesterday for you

Your conscience guided by a light
Your memory won't be here tonight
The sorrow that eyes are showing
Doesn't hide your spirit flowing

So close your eyes and drift away
Tomorrow seems like yesterday for you

Drift away
Tomorrow seems like yesterday for you
