​Dream Queen

This song is by Shawn Phillips and appears on the album Bright White (1973).

Phillips

How I hate to leave you
How I hate to see you go
I feel so down without you
Dying surely couldn't get this low
But the minute that we're together
I can't think of anything other than you
Looking in your eyes, totally surprised
Far out on the limb, not another whim for you.

Do you miss me sometimes?
Do you miss me in the night?
Do you read the moonbeams making tasseled silver light?
And quicksilver's densely viscous
Compared to the time it takes to get to you.
Figure I can fly
Never been so high
Catch you from above
You know that I'm in love with you

Dream queen, how you seem to shine
Poised and lovely woman mine
Sitting on your doorstep
Waiting for your footsteps to come around
People passing by me
I could be entirely drowned
And you know I heard you call
And suddenly I joined the ball for you
Not a petty thrill, forget your little pill
Come and be my mate, then we'll celebrate
One in two

Sitting on your doorstep
Waiting for your footsteps to come round
People passing by me I could be entirely drowned
And you know I heard you call
And suddenly I joined the ball for you
Figure I could fly, never been so high
Catch me from above, you know that I'm in love with you
