Carrying A Dream

When you fall asleep before the fire and I carry you to bed
I wonder if you’re dreaming in a place inside your head
You are a feather in my arms
We’re together safe from harm
The dream sails on and on and on
And a tune runs through my head

I’m carrying a dream, walking on a cloud
I’m better by my love for you and singing it out loud
Whatever else these old carbon atoms do
The finest times they’ve ever known
Were when they dreamed in love with you

There are times that I’ll remember if you ever go away
Little routines and ways we touch, you know the things I mean
We spend our days paying bills
And keeping the children fed
Midnight finds you in a dream
And the tune runs through my head

I’m carrying a dream, walking on a cloud
I’m better by my love for you and singing it out loud
Whatever else these old carbon atoms do
The finest times they’ve ever known
Were when they dreamed in love with you

I’m carrying a dream, walking on a cloud
I’m better by my love for you and singing it out loud
Whatever else these old carbon atoms do
The finest times they’ve ever known
Were when they dreamed in love with you
