Living It Is But A Dream

Shall I hold you dear.
Can you hold on too?
Or shall I do all the work.
And see this through.

Send me a stardust wish.
I'll make it come true.
I know the name of your shield.
I know what he means to you.

We see how it bends.
we watch how it grows.
We go beyond it all.
So nobody else knows.

We'll watch our tree grow.
It's branches reaching out.
Our actions making more noise.
Then a scream or a shout.

Lets watch it unfold.
The secrets of our book.
Not even I can see it?
Just give me one look.

It just takes one.
Just a sun dropp from the sky.
A jewel that glistens.
Just Like your eyes.

Keep it safe.
Hold it to your heart.
Listen to it ring.
It's just about to start.
