Violets of Dawn
Take me to the night I'm tippin' topsy-turvy, turnin' upside down Hold me tight and whisper what you wish For there is no one here around Oh, you may sing-song me sweet smiles Regardless of the city's careless frown Come watch the no colors fade blazin' Into petal sprays of violets of dawn In blindfold wonderments, enchantments You can lift my wings softly to fly Your eyes are like swift fingers reachin' out Into the pockets of my night Whirlin', twirlin' puppy warm Before the flashin' cloaks of darkness gone Come see the no colors fade blazin' Into petal sprays of violets of dawn Some Prince Charmin', I'll be on two white steeds To bring you dapple diamond crowns And climb your tower, Sleepin' Beauty 'Fore you ever know I've left the ground You can wear a Cinderella, Snow-white Alice Wonderland gown Come watch the no colors fade blazin' Into petal sprays of violets of dawn But if I seem to wander off in dream-like looks Please, let me settle slowly It's only me just starin', speakin' holy No, I don't mean to wake you up It's only loneliness just comin' on So let the no colors fade blazin' Into petal sprays of violets of dawn Like shadows burstin' into mist Behind the echoes of this nonsense song It's just chasin', whisperin' trail Of secret steps; see them laughin' on There's magic in the sleepiness Of wakin' to a childish soundin' yawn Come watch the no colors fade blazin' Into petal sprays of violets of dawn
