a place where nighttime lost its nightmare | where darkness lost its bite | black became indigo and mineral blue | soft with sparkling lights

in this winter sleep, the land dreams

from here I'll greet you | and send a smile in a dream | in this land of dark I'll meet you | with all the earth, with everything

in this winter sleep, the land dreams

over miles of quiet earth that lie between | from my home of frost, to your home of rain | the sound of a candle sings | | in this winter sleep, the land dreams
