lyrics

Dreams are funny things.
At night when you are sleeping,
All the world inside your head
Is wide awake and lets you watch it play.
But you don’t -
You just dismiss these visions;
But just suppose these are not visions
But glimpses of the flesh and bone
That make you wake at dawn?

And you wonder why you hunger
For something indistinct and way above your reach
And you listen for a mission -
It’s the breathing in and breathing out that fill your sails and blow you home.

So sleep the quiet sleep;
Walk around ignoring all the signs
But don’t expect to get there,
Just don’t expect to ever get there.
Cause you won’t -
Not if you insist on measuring everything
Against your limited capacity
For seeing in the dark

Cause why would you?
And how could you?
We’re not designed to reach the end before we start.
Lift your head up,
Take a good look,
You might not get another chance to see this place.

Let it all fall by -
The fast and the cynical,
When it touches something so pure.

Oh, it makes me angry.
I get so angry,
Cause you destroy things that you haven’t even seen
And you could think,
Oh, you just won’t think
There’s no-one holding hands over your eyes but you.

Let it all fall by,
Just the slow and the beautiful sound
Of the world spinning on
Beneath us, so far beneath us,
And we climb forever,
Describing a parallel to the world
And looking down,
And smiling above it all,
And the way it looks from way up here
Is the way it’ll look when we’ve disappeared.
We could fly all night with these dreams in the sky,
So fly.
