I’ll See You In My Dreams

Monday, 24 October 2011

Though the days are long
Twilight sings a song
Of a happiness that used to be
Soon my eyes will close (soon my eyes will close)
Soon I’ll find repose
And in dreams, you’re always near to me

I’ll see you in my dreams
Hold you in my dreams
Someone took you out of my arms
Still, I feel the thrill of your charms
Lips that once were mine
Tender eyes that shine
They will light our way tonight
I’ll see you in my dreams

In the dreary gray
Of another day
You are far away and I am blue
Still I hope and pray (still I hope and pray)
Through each weary day
For it brings the night and dreams of you

I’ll see you in my dreams
Hold you in my dreams
Someone took you out of my arms
Still, I feel the thrill of your charms
Lips that once were mine
Tender eyes that shine
They will light our way tonight
I’ll see you in my dreams
They will light our way tonight
I’ll see you in my dreams

 

Thanks to Lynne Watson for recommending this. What a great song this is, she suggests, for communal singing at secular funerals.

    Sublime.

    It’s so simple; you can hear all the words, and a jaunty tune to lift one’s breaking heart.

    Sung especially for love of George Harrisson, too?
    Too good!

    His wife Vicki Brown died of cancer in 1991 and she wrote the song, “Look for me in Rainbows”.
