Wikipedia: Deep in a Dream

I dim all the lights and I sink in my chair.
The smoke from my cigarette climbs through the air.
The walls of my room fade away in the blue,
And I’m deep in a dream of you.
The smoke makes a stairway for you to descend;
You come to my arms, may this bliss never end,
For we love anew just as we used to do
When I’m deep in a dream of you.
Then from the ceiling
Sweet music comes stealing;
We glide through a lover’s refrain.
You’re so appealing
That I’m soon revealing
My love for you over again.
My cigarette burns me, I wake with a start;
My hand isn’t hurt, but there’s pain in my heart.
Awake or asleep, every memory I’ll keep
Deep in a dream of you.
