Michael Hedges - A Midwinter Night's Dream lyrics

Once upon a timeless night
once behind my dreams
you scratched my makeup off so I could scream

The playhouse will pack tonight
metropolitan appeal
and all the actors fake
forgetting props are real

And the sirens harmonize tonight
in a million dollar show
they’re racing to that blazing fire glow

Policemen man their spotlight cars
and race around the stage
in my mobile dressing room the drivers change

The set is falling through the night
twenty inches deep
and all the shifting snow will drift my soul to sleep

Beneath the cold cold cream
she hides
refusing to yield her concrete arteries of life concealed

And the sirens harmonize tonight
in a million dollar show
they’re racing to that blazing fire glow

Policemen man their spotlight cars
and race around the stage
in my mobile dressing room the drivers change

I'm talking to my leading lady
she’s asking me how long
will these horizontal friends she made belong

So if you throw your cast away
we can travel on
if the beltway loosens up before the dawn

And the sirens harmonize tonight
in a million dollar show
they’re racing to that blazing fire glow

Policemen man their spotlight cars
and race around the stage
in my mobile dressing room the drivers change…
my sad-eyed drivers change
