Mountain dreams

I’d walk with you along the mountain side
And hold your hand across a burbling stream
Pretend to close my eyes so you could hide
And chase you round and round this lovely dream

We’d walk together through the gloomy trees
And maybe swap a kiss where there’s no sun
Before we find a clearing where the breeze
Can whip the leaves to dance and join the fun

You’d take me to the places that you know
So I can feel the world you live at night
There are so many beauties you could show
And walking with a lover makes them right

And yours would be the name the skies would sing
Would you be there to give me everything?
