Itís in remembrance of my mother.


Tonight

Tonight is not the night,
Of counting the blessings,
Tonight is not the night
Of mourning the loss,
Or remembering the past
Tonight is not the night
To find all the answers

But tonight, please wake me not,
I am swirling in dreams,
That weaved to her lullaby
In her sweet presence
My senses immerse
Happy and pleased
I am soaking, I am sinking

The weather has called
A cold front for tomorrow,
But tonight, I am warm on her chest
Tonight is not the night,
That sheís here to comfort
And itís not the night,
that I am a child,
It is the night, that
I am floating between the real
And the unreal
Tonight I am kissed,
Hugged and wrapped around
her warm body
And that, it is real in my dreams

Oh wake me not, to the real
Tonight is not the night
To celebrate the real
Cuz here in my dreams?
Thereís no mourning the real

So tonight let me sleep,
let me dream till I know,
That I lost her.
And then,
I need no waking up
To the cold of tomorrow
Cuz then,
Iíll be frozen in her cold chest
And then,
Whatís real, whatís unreal
Whatís tonight
And whatís tomorrow.
