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
