Song Description

dreams of unrequited love

Story Behind the Song

Years ago in my youth, I had a recurring dream I was with a beautiful woman and when I went to kiss her I would wake up, very annoyed and sad


When night is deep amid my sleep
A dream begins to play
Lips to glass, then when we dance
I hear a voice inside me say

Amour, what is this I feel?
How can you be real?
Amour, what was my mistake?
Your kiss made me awake.

I call your name I fall again
as through a metaphor
Through a crystal rose in candle glow
Will you come to me once more?


Day flies past now home at last
As twilight finds it's way
A night to keep, one love to seek
Again, I see your face.

Amour, what is this I feel?
and how can you be real?
Amour, what was my mistake?
Your kiss made me awake.
