Velvet dreams

You've always been just “mama’s girl”
in your golden castle, between your toys,
with your deep blue gowns and yellow curls,
and all the silly songs and small-girl-joys…

There are so many, many things
that - just if you dared - you and I could do…
but you never cared for anything,
always someone else had to pay your dues…

(Chorus)
Velvet dreams…
Have you ever seen that gleaming
when you sleep, are you dreaming
of you and me at least a bit?
do we ever meet
in your velvet dreams…?

Now you’re grown, thinking you’re still small,
you’re such a pretty lady with your curls,
yet you didn't notice, after all,
years… years ago you stopped to be a girl…

(Chorus)
Velvet dreams…
Have you ever seen that gleaming
when you sleep, are you dreaming
of you and me at least a bit?
do we ever meet
in your velvet dreams…?

(Bridge)
Hey girl! Your childhood is off duty,
stop dreaming of a life that’s not to be…
forever, you can’t be young nor can you keep this beauty,
time does not stop because of you and me…

(Chorus)
Velvet dreams…
Have you ever seen that gleaming
when you sleep, are you dreaming
of you and me at least a bit?
do we ever meet
in your velvet dreams…?
