The ebb and flow of the tide
Will carry me forth into your arms
And though i'll miss you tonight
The thought of your love keeps me warm

As the moon comes out over the water

Precious and too sweet
I shall pray love your soul to keep
The river sleeping sound
I shall be dreaming deep of you

Soul will keep thee, rife and weepy, calling out to you

The dip and roar of the crowd
Will dizzy me forth into your arms
And if we pass it all around
We'll be of the same point of view

As the world spins round, here everafter

Precious and too sweet
I shall pray love your soul to keep
The river sleeping sound
I shall be dreaming deep of you
On a bed of silver sand
I'll take you lightly by the hand
And we'll dance on by the moon
I shall be dreaming deep of you

Shattered, dreamy, calm and sweetly, fool enough for two

When the stars play hide and seek
I shall be dreaming deep of you (i shall be dreaming)
Precious and too sweet
I shall pray love your soul to keep (i shall be praying)
On a bed of silver sand
I'll take you lightly by the hand (i shall be dreaming)
And we'll dance on by the moon
I shall be dreaming deep of you (i shall be praying)
