She stops to take 5 minutes

As she sighs along to the quiet
Giving herself some time to breath
She's hears a pleasant whisper
It's her own enchanted voice you see
Having some time to think now
To her own sweet pleasant whispers
As she let's the wave of still surround her
Taking in the peace

Shes a drifter and a dreamer
And I know you do believe her
When she tells you
She caught the stars
She's a drifter and a dreamer
And I know she gets your fever
When you see her 
Dancing in the dark

She's soaked in flooded moments
Times of gold, she hold these treasures
As she let's the wave of still surround her
Thoughts etched in her mind
Her own enchanted voice is saying
Never stop your dreaming please
Sometimes it gets you through the day
The world moves on regardless

Shes a drifter and a dreamer
And I know you do believe her
When she tells you
She caught the stars
She's a drifter and a dreamer
And I know she gets your fever
When you see her 
Dancing in the dark

These flooded moments 
Soak her skin
You dive right in
You dive right in

As she stops to take 5 minutes
To drift and be swept away
The hazy morning sunrise
Shines on her face.
