Velvet Queen

Written By :David Jane

Is it hopeless to believe in

What has proved to be deceiving

Once before

When there’s nothing more

 

 

Drowned in shallow water

All the lessons that he taught her

Turned to stone

A crumbling home

 

 

You’re drifting away on an endless sea

Of unknowing insecurity unfree

So won’t you trade the tears upon your sleeve

For a game of make believe

And you can be

 

 

My sweetest dream

My soul’s serene

My Velvet Queen

My Velvet Queen

 

 

As timid as a kitten’s paws

Which turn from time to time to claws

You bend

And retract again

 

 

But if you can’t escape the feeling

Well then just embrace the evening

Cut the lights

You’re so uptight

 

 

The cold wind meets your breathing

Closing eyes untouched by reason, evenly

And as I fade into the atmosphere

To find that you’re still here

I can see

 

 

My sweetest dream

My soul’s serene

My Velvet Queen

My Velvet Queen

 

 

Through the cobwebs of your corridors

The moldy floors and bolted doors

You’ll see

There’s a light upon the coupon key

That shines for you and me

And I can be

 

 

Your sweetest dream

Your soul’s serene

Your Velvet Queen

Your Velvet Queen
