The Dream Song

I had a dream I was following a barefoot girl

Beside a dream 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
