I've just closed my eyes again Climbed aboard the dream weaver train Driver take away my worries of today And leave tomorrow behind Oh dream weaver I believe you can get me through the night Oh dream weaver I believe we can reach the morning light Fly me high through the starry skies Maybe to an astral plane Cross the highways of fantasy Help me to forget today's pain Oh dream weaver I believe you can get me through the night Oh dream weaver I believe we can reach the morning light Though the dawn may be coming soon There still may be some time Fly me away to the bright side of the moon And meet me on the other side Oh dream weaver I believe you can get me through the night Oh dream weaver I believe we can reach the morning light Dream weaver Dream weaver
