Oh what a dream…

THE DREAM SONG
(Written by Joan Baez and Ron Davies)

I had a dream I was following a barefoot girl
Beside a stream that flowed around the world
And we spoke of many things though her mouth never moved
As the most peculiar scenes were disappearing into view

Oh what a dream beyond the realm of why
Pretty little beings beneath the yawning sky
Speaking of God as though they could define
Music to the deaf and color to the blind or God to man

And then the leaves became a thousand tears
And I was on my knees in a crazy house of mirrors
I couldn’t find my face but a voice was drawing nearer
Hush baby, sweet baby, hush don’t you cry

And I thought I woke and my mother was standing there
And my heart broke as the ribbons in her hair
Turned into highways surrounded and swirled
Like a crown come down around a not so perfect world

In the corner of the dream was the man with the blue guitar
It had no strings but the music touched the stars
And his long dark curls turned to gold before my eyes
And the barefoot girl smiled off to the side and it was real

Then a thousand birds took flight with a joyful noise
And I heard the angels up on high rejoice
I could see my face and I recognized the voice
Hush baby, sweet baby, hush baby hush

It’s just a dream, one of those that goes on and on
Scene after scene with the rhythm of a gypsy song
When I really woke I was frozen in between
I didn’t know who I was, it was a dream inside a dream

It’s all a dream
Oh what a dream
I had a dream

Animal : Miike Snow

Animal

There was a time when my world was filled with
Darkness darkness darkness
Then I stopped dreaming now I’m supposed to fill it up with
Something something something

In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody I knew before
Long, long, long ago go go
But I’m still trying to make my mind up
Am I free or am I tied up

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I’m still, I’m still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip, yeah I slip
I’m still an animal

There is a hole and I tried to fill up with
Money money money
But it gets bigger till your hopes is always
Running running running

In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody
Who could be strong, tell me if I’m
Wrong wrong wrong
And now I’m pulling your disguise up
Are you free or are you tied up

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I’m still, I’m still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip, yeah I slip
I’m still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I’m still, I’m still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip, yeah I slip
I’m still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I’m still, I’m still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip, yeah I slip
I’m still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I’m still, I’m still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip, yeah I slip
I’m still an animal
