Summer and a Dream (Live)

Summer and a Dream

There’s a distance, I perceive
Between the summer and a dream,
Like a melody
Between you and me.

Like a work of art
Longing at the heart
Express what can’t be shown
Draw pictures of the unknown.

Candle in the window late at night
Gives a fleeting kind of light
Like starlight in the morning sky
Like the light in your eye.

There’s a distance, perceive
Between the summer and a dream
Like a melody
Like a melody. (August, 2012)
