    To dream again

    Got to feel the wind on my bones
    Like everyone I’m on my own
    Moving on past the hemisphere
    I can fly up to heaven
    Moving on through the disparate masses
    I will rise to live again…

    Won’t you let me out
    (let me in)?
    It’s time to live
    (time to begin)
    I look around past the memories wasted
    Time gone by, & love sustained
    & looking out past the infinite madness
    I will rise to dream again.

    I SAW A TINY BIRD ON A LIMB OUT SIDE MY WINDOW
    SEEING ME SHE FLEW AWAY LIKE YOU LONG AGO
    LOOKING TO THE STREET AN OLD BEER CAN WAS BLOWING
    LIKE THE ME YOU USE TO KNOW
    DONT’ BE AFRAID TINY BIRD THE SAME WIND THAT
    BLOWS THE CAN WILL GUIDE YOU HOME AGAIN
    BIRDS AND CANS PEOPLE AND LANDS
    ONLY TIME CAN COMAND THE WIND THAT BLOWS THEM HOME
    I SAW A TINY BIRD ON A LIMB OUT SIDE MY WINDOW
    SEEING ME SHE FLEW AWAY JUST LIKE ME LONG AGO
