I’ve got a friend that only I can see
He sneaks around and sometimes helps me He might turn on the light then turn it off again But I think, to him, its all just a game.
I often retreat to the world of my mind
I can see all the people that left me behind We can have a play and a giggle too And all is happy, there’s nothing to do.
But more and more I’m beginning to find
That people think I am losing my mind I like my dreamworld so very much That I just can’t release it from my needy clutch
Its starting to take over my life on this world
It’s a place where I can be just a happy little girl You’re welcome to join me; please come along We can all be happy and sing happy songs.
