As Easily As Birds

I had a dream and you were there,
we were both suspended in the air..
flying wasn’t hard to learn,
we could rise as easily as birds..
+++ but I know that’ll never be, oh, that’ll never be,
+++ as anyone can see,
+++ though we may fly when we dream,
+++ but we wake up to gravity,
+++ so that’ll never, that will never be..

I had a song that started well,
ringing out as clearly as a bell..
I never found a second verse that could hold a candle to the first..
+++++ like the first spark of love,
+++++ when the dark was enough,
+++++ and our hearts were still soft,
+++++ can we turn back the clock?..
+++ no, that’ll never be, oh, that’ll never be,
+++ as anyone can see,
+++ though we may fly when we dream,
+++ but we wake up to gravity,
+++ so that’ll never, that will never be..

PART 2: I had a dream and you were there..

PART 3: don’t give up so easily,
you can’t see how far the ripples travel…

    I love that last part especially…”don’t give up so easily…you can’t hear how far the echoes carry…” Encouragement especially when things don’t look the way you thought they would at any given moment. So glad that you are in the world, making music for us, Brad.
