80's Lunchtime Music Moment

Since it's Friday, and I havne't done one in awhile....

I loved this song and the video back in the day (unlike their stupid "picking up the hitchhiker and having his baby" one). When it came on today, I realized it had been years since I'd heard it.

Dedicated to all fellow Tolkien fans and dreamers everywhere.


These Dreams ~ Heart

Spare a little candle
Save some light for me
Figures up ahead
Moving in the trees
White skin in linen
Perfume on my wrist
And the full moon that hangs over
These dreams in the mist

Darkness on the edge
Shadows where I stand
I search for the time
On a watch with no hands
I want to see you clearly
Come closer than this
But all I remember
Are the dreams in the mist

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away

Is it cloak n dagger
Could it be spring or fall
I walk without a cut
Through a stained glass wall
Weaker in my eyesight
The candle in my grip
And words that have no form
Are falling from my lips

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away

There's something out there
I can't resist
I need to hide away from the pain
There's something out there
I can't resist

The sweetest song is silence
That I've ever heard
Funny how your feet
In dreams never touch the earth
In a wood full of princes
Freedom is a kiss
But the prince hides his face
From dreams in the mist

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away

This was a favorite of my cousin Wendy. I still think of her every time I hear it, but for a while after she killed herself, I couldn't stand to listen to it at all.

I'm sorry, Jay :(

Quite okay! That was a long time ago. If I hear that song, I still remember her, but it's more how cool she was than about how tragic.

There seems to have been a disproportionate amount of suicide in my family history though, most of it in the Washburn lineage, which is my father's mother's side.
