Wherever Good Dreams Go

Janis Ian

Paint the walls in fairy tales
A ceiling full of stars
Mobiles hung in gay display
above the cradle bars
Sometimes I think I hear
your laughter through the door
Then I remember what
I won't hear any more

Do you see me down here?
talking to the empty air?
In my memories of you
I'm just a little closer to
wherever good dreams go up there

I was once the only one
to brush away your tears
If ever you are lonely
I will always be right here
And if you need me
you can wish upon a star
'cause I will always hear
your prayers in my heart

Do you see me down here?
talking to the empty air?
In my memories of you
I'm just a little closer to
wherever good dreams go up there

I wonder where you are tonight
Are you warm and tucked in tight?
and do you ever visit me
in your memory?

People think i'm crazy
to keep holding on so long
but how can I get over you
when you're not really gone

Do you see me down here?
talking to the empty air?
In my memories of you
I'm just a little closer to
wherever good dreams go up there
