Music by Kenneth Holmström

Lyrics by Jonas Lundberg

 

In the stillness

preceding the dawn

my young daughter´s calling from her room

And by her bedside

I ask what is wrong

and she wonders if I know the kind of song

 

The kind of song that

carries away

some things I might have done that weren´t okay

A song that makes

the thoughts in my head

to think a little kind of me instead

 

Close your eyes

In a while

Dreams will come

Dreams will come

 

She is drowsy

and holding my hand

but asking me to sing it once again

´Cause she wonders

what they will say

and if her friends are gonna let her play

 

Close your eyes

In a while

Dreams will come

Dreams will come

 

And there was a young girl

determined to see

if she could live life perfectly

Just to find out

to keep to her goal

she could do nothing at all

 

Close your eyes

In a while

Dreams will come

Dreams will come

 

Close your eyes

and you will find

that what´s been done

is left behind
