SUMMER FLY
(Cheryl Wheeler)

In another younger day, I could dream the time away
In the universe inside my room
And the world was really mine from June to September
And if it wasn't really so I was lucky not to know
And I was lucky not to wonder why
'Cause a pure and golden high is all that I remember
    A summer fly was buzzin' every night
    When I was young
    In the gentle world, my childlike senses knew
    And the world was just my cousin
    And the wind was just the tongue
    In the voice my lonely moments listened to

And I look at me today all the dreams have gone away
And I'm where I never thought I'd be
Seein' things I never thought I'd see happen to me
And I lay awake at night till the darkness goes to light
Hearin' voices callin' out my name
Dronin' over and again the same message to me
    Cryin' who's your partner, who's your darlin', who's your baby now?
    Who wakes up at night to pull you in
    It don't matter, you just make her lonely anyhow
    Don't know why you even try to win (repeat this chorus twice)
