Lyrics

Beyond my dreams

Written By: Marina Schiavinato

Bright stars appear up in the sky
It’s getting dark here comes the night
And the moon is coming up slowly
Half opened beyond my dreams

Oh tender night sweet as a child
Falling asleep upon his pillow
It’s getting late we can’t stay longer
It’s getting late we can’t stay longer
Half opened beyond my dreams
Half opened behind…

Just like a thought without a word
The night is speaking from dusk ‘till dawn
It’s getting late we can’t stay longer
It’s getting late we can’t stay longer
Half opened beyond my dreams

Just floating just floating it’s easy
While dreaming while dreaming

The stars above now fade away
The morning comes off goes the night
It’s getting late I have to go
(It’s getting late I have to go)
Right back to this side of dreaming
(Back to this side of dreaming)
Just floating beyond…

Eh Eh Eh - Uh
Eh Eh Eh

While dreaming...

Set List

Don't play that song
Save me
I say a little prayer
A natural woman
Amazing grace
Moon River
Rock me baby
The man I love
Cheek to cheek
Can't find my way home
The times they are a changin'
Knocking on heaven's door
Like a rolling stone
Blowing in the wind
Don't worry be happy
For what it's worth
Time after time
I heard it through the grapevine
Have you ever seen the rain
Proud mary
Knock on wood
Summertime
People get ready
The letter
Stormy Monday
I want to know
Piece of my heart
The girl from Ipanema
Eppur mi son scordato di te
Il tempo di morire
La canzone del sole
Dieci ragazze
Un'avventura
Moonlight shadow
Down by the riverside
Rome wasn't build in a day
Sunrise
Hit the road Jack
Georgia on my mind
Venus
The weight
Don't let me down
With a little help from my friends
Behind blue eyes
Give me one reason
Somewhere over the rainbow
What a wonderful world
Moondance
When the Saints go marchin’ in
Hound dog
Sunshine of your love
Mercedes
