The Box

I had a dream last night
You were running out of sight
On the sand beach was a treasure
A wooden box I could only measure
Was it daybreak or early dusk
Wind had the smell of ancient musk
As I came closer to the water
Here it was covered in feathers

Turned the key, lift it up
And opened it, and lit it up
Turned the key, lift it up
And opened it

Found your smile in the box
And a tree house too
Two weeks in New York
And a stick of glue, I wonder what it was for
Your heart’s in the box
And mine is there too
An old pair of socks
And a rendezvous, I wonder what is that for

I had a dream last night
You were smiling in delight
In the distance was a shadow
A dancing angel shooting an arrow
Looked like twilight or evenfall
Sea had the shade of lilac rose
As I came closer to the water
Here it was brilliant and covered in feathers

Turned the key and lift it up
And opened it and lit it up
Turned the key and lift it up
And opened it

Found your smile in the box
And a tree house too
Two weeks in New York
And a stick of glue, I wondered what it was for
Your heart’s in the box
And mine is there too
An old pair of socks
And a rendezvous, I wonder what is that for

Found your smile in the box
A tree house too
Two weeks in New York
A stick of glue
Your heart’s in the box
And mine is there too
An old pair of socks
And a secret rendezvous …

Put your smile in the box
Two weeks in New York
And an old pair of socks
Put your smile in the box
Two weeks in New York
An old pair of socks

Oh your smile, your heart, my heart

I wonder…
