I sit alone in the golden daylight,
But all I see is a silver sky;
For in my fancy I sweep away light,
And keep my image of the sky,
Just the way we like it, you and I.
All through the day I dream about the night,
I dream about the night, Here with you.
All through the day I wish away the time,
Until the time when I'm here with you.
Down falls the sun, I run to meet you,
The evening mist melts away;
Down smiles the moon, And soon your lips recall
The kiss I dreamed of all through the day.
