Fully lucid that this landscape,

I was walking close to a gentle lake,

I was walking close to a gentle lake, I knew it oh so well.

I was walking close to a gentle lake, I knew it oh so well. I'd spent my childhood walking there,

Then a figure down the lane,

Then a figure down the lane, approaches me so very calm.

Then a figure down the lane, approaches me so very calm. Long hair, cute face, and soul aglow;

Then a figure down the lane, approaches me so very calm. Long hair, cute face, and soul aglow; like a soothing female balm.

I'm drawn to her and she's drawn to me,

I'm drawn to her and she's drawn to me, my skin tingles as we close,

I'm drawn to her and she's drawn to me, my skin tingles as we close, It's like a strong magnetic pull,

I'm drawn to her and she's drawn to me, my skin tingles as we close, It's like a strong magnetic pull, imbued with sweet scent of rose.

An electric burst implosion,

An electric burst implosion, as she takes me by the hand.

An electric burst implosion, as she takes me by the hand. And she leads me to the lakeside,

An electric burst implosion, as she takes me by the hand. And she leads me to the lakeside, and we sit on the sand.

We lean in together, then we kiss,

We lean in together, then we kiss, so slight and gentle-soft.

We lean in together, then we kiss, so slight and gentle-soft. My body abuzz with blissful light,

We lean in together, then we kiss, so slight and gentle-soft. My body abuzz with blissful light, my mind in cruise aloft.

We sit and talk and cuddle,

We sit and talk and cuddle, she's as vivid real as day.

We sit and talk and cuddle, she's as vivid real as day. She feels like angels sent her,

We sit and talk and cuddle, she's as vivid real as day. She feels like angels sent her, she says she'll never go away.

"You don't exist," I protest,

"You don't exist," I protest, but our hands remain entwined.

"You don't exist," I protest, but our hands remain entwined. "Maybe not as you know," she said,

"You don't exist," I protest, but our hands remain entwined. "Maybe not as you know," she said, "but I'm more than in your mind."

We rested on the lakeside,

We rested on the lakeside, hand in hand and soul to soul.

We rested on the lakeside, hand in hand and soul to soul. She said she was mine forever,

We rested on the lakeside, hand in hand and soul to soul. She said she was mine forever, she said she loved me whole.

"I'm with you always", she said,

"I'm with you always", she said, "guiding you on your way

"I'm with you always", she said, "guiding you on your way helping you, protecting you,

"I'm with you always", she said, "guiding you on your way helping you, protecting you, from joy to darkest day."

"You will sense me in those times,

"You will sense me in those times, when the waters turn to frost,

"You will sense me in those times, when the waters turn to frost, and in those moments you need a hand,

"You will sense me in those times, when the waters turn to frost, and in those moments you need a hand, when all will seem so lost."

She pressed her lips into my cheek,

She pressed her lips into my cheek, the sensation lingered on my skin.

Then I awoke, back in my room;

Then I awoke, back in my room; the brilliant sun had dawned.

Then I awoke, back in my room; the brilliant sun had dawned. I lay awash with happiness,

Then I awoke, back in my room; the brilliant sun had dawned. I lay awash with happiness, my heart kindled as I yawned.

I arose to dress myself,

I arose to dress myself, and set about my day.

I arose to dress myself, and set about my day. I went to the bathroom,

I arose to dress myself, and set about my day. I went to the bathroom, as the dream ebbed away.

I stared into the mirror,

I stared into the mirror, and there upon my face,

I stared into the mirror, and there upon my face, was the lipstick pink of a single kiss...

I stared into the mirror, and there upon my face, was the lipstick pink of a single kiss... Then it disappeared without a trace
