Lyrics for Song: Only A Dream
Lyrics for Album: Triple Feature [2010]

I can recall the sound of the wind

As it blew through the trees and the trees would bend

I can recall the smell of the rain

On a hot summer night

Coming through the screen

I'd crawl in your bed when the lightning flashed

And I'd still be there when the storm had passed

Dead to the world, to the morning cast

Its light all around your room

We lived on a street where the tall elm shade

Was as green as the grass and as cool as a blade

That you held in your teeth as we lay on our backs

Staring up at the blue and the blue stared back

I used to believe we were just like those trees

We'd grown just as tall and as proud as we pleased

With our feet on the ground and our arms in the breeze

Under a sheltering sky

Twirl me about, and twirl me around

Let me grow dizzy and fall to the ground

And when I look up at you looking down,

Say it was only a dream

A big truck was parked in the drive one day

They wrapped us in paper and moved us away

Your room was no longer next door to mine

And this kid sister thing was old by that time

But oh how our dreams went bump in the night

And the voices downstairs getting into a fight

And the next day a silence you could cut with a knife

And feel like a blade at your throat

Twirl me about and twirl me around

Let me grow dizzy and fall to the ground

When I look up at you looking down

Say it as only a dream

The day you left home you got an early start

I watched your car back out in the dark

I opened the door to your room down the hall

I turned on the light

And all that I saw

Was a bed and a desk and couple of tacks

No sign of someone who expects to be back

It must have been one hell of a suitcase you packed

Twirl me about, twirl me around

Let me grow dizzy and fall to the ground

When I look up at you looking down

Say it was only a dream
