Put a kiss on your pillow

 

I came here by starlight, got a lift from the moon,

With a dreamkeeper's key, I entered you room,

Took a moment to study, the way that you slept,

Put a kiss on your pillow, I'd heard that you wept.

 

I'm not real by your rules, I live in a heart,

Somewhere far away, passed the earth, passed the stars,

I'm a notional creature, of love and content,

Put a kiss on your pillow, I'd heard that you wept.

 

I live far away, though I'm always close by,

The heart that I live in, is hurt by your cry,

You may never see me, I'm here nonetheless,

Put a kiss on your pillow, I'd heard that you wept.

 

In a place far away, beyond life’s short embrace,

If you’re ready I’ll take you, where your lover awaits,

Your tears drew me to you, I respond to distress,

Put a kiss on your pillow, I’d heard that you wept,
