The world is lyrical
because a miracle
has brought my lover to me
though he's some other place
his face I see  

at night I creep in bed
and  never sleep in bed 
but look above in the air 

and to my greatest joy my boy is there

it his prince and walks
into my dreams and talks

He dances overhead 
on the ceiling near my bed 
in my sight 
through the night 

I tried to hide in vain 
underneath my counterpane 
there's my love up above

I whisper "go away my lover it's not fair"
but I'm so grateful to discover he's till there

I love my ceiling more since it is a dancing floor 
just for my love
