I dreamt a dream with you last night I called out from the dark, I dreamt and called aloud again, I dreamt you called me back. I tried to climb the high high hill That kept us both apart, I crept, I crept, I could not stand, I struggled with the dark. At last I heaved a final heave, I gained the topmost rung, I saw you there, you looked and said "I've waited here so long." They heard me crying in my sleep They heard the anguish in my tears, They tried to wake me from my dream But I had fled, across the years.
