As Easily As Birds

Written February 2010

Tab C, capo 5 (F/dm)

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…
