While We Sleep

While we sleep, we dare to dream the dreams we wish to be. 

We linger there and toss our cares to see the possibilities.

Sweet Dreams

We’re Albright boys.  We’ve made a place for our toys.

Our friends are steppin’ out, yeah,

I get excited when I hear them shout our names!

***

Listen!  Jon, Jacob, Ervin, Ivan please,

Play a game with me!

***

A time and place to run and hide in my life.

A time to figure out, yeah,

What life is all about for me?

***

Waken!  Jon, Jacob, Ervin, Ivan, we,

Are brothers and we’re family!

***

Past memories fade like clouds and dreams, in my mind.

There’s a voice it’s calling out, yeah.

I see her face and I know the sound, “Sweet dreams!”

***

Saying!  Jon, Jacob, Ervin, Ivan see,

You’re the best of me!

***

You’re the best of me!

***

Sweet dreams!

I’ll Wait for You

Sweetest dreams, I hear your voice

Make believing with your toys.

I see how much you’ve grown.

We’re together, not alone.

Refrain:

And I’ll wait for you.

When this trial is through,

You’ll come running through my door.

You’re the child that I’ve adored.

***

While I’m pressed for time

I hear your footsteps from behind,

Running down that hall,

I say, catch me. Don’t you fall!

Refrain:

And I’ll wait for you.

When this trial is through,

You’ll come running through my door.

You’re the child that I’ve adored.

***

Posted photos on the wall,

Captured moments to recall.

A life stood still in time,

Once upon this child of mine.

Refrain:

And I’ll wait for you.

When this trial is through,

You’ll come running through my door.

You’re the child that I’ve adored.

***

Tag:

I’ll wait for you.
