lyrics

Where do I meet you now you’re no longer here?
Meet you dreamland where worries disappear

You’re a whisper in the wind
A flicker in the light
A smile upon my cheek
When you kiss me goodnight
Sweet dreams, sweet dreams
Made of memories

You massaged my legs when I’d been running at school
Helped me with my Latin tables Bam, Bas, Bamus
Bam, Bas, Bamus

You’d plait my hair with sleepy eyes
Plait my hair from your sleepy bed
Sweet dreams, sweet dreams
Made of memories

Memories of you alive
Nothing prepares you
Memories of you alive

Now you’re no longer here to whisper in my ear
Whisper in the wind, can you hear me?
Now you’re no longer here to whisper in my ear
Whisper in the wind, I can hear you

You’re a whisper in the wind
A flicker in the light
Smile upon my cheek
When you kiss me goodnight

A whisper in the wind
A flicker in the light
Smile upon my cheek
When I kiss you goodnight

Sweet dreams, sweet dreams
As you lay beneath the trees
Sweet dreams, sweet dreams, sweet dreams
