Might as well post `em here, then (such as they are):


Dream No. 2
by Ken Tobias, 1972

I drew a picture of a pair of wings
because I want to fly
My mother asked me to explain
I said that I would try

I had a dream the other night about flying
and the man who was teaching me was crying
he said that fewer people were trying
and the art of really flying was dying

La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la

She said it was the strangest thing
that she had ever heard
A man can only be a man
he cannot be a bird

That's not really true I tried to tell her
If you search for love you soon will find an answer
You gotta think so high you're floating like a feather
But you have to learn to leave your head

Just take(?) the wings & fly away
up into the wind
Above the trees you glide with ease
rounding back again

Father can't you hear me, (unintelligible) you take my hand, yeah
Dying's a part of living, but I know you'll understand

Bt all he did was walk away and leave me
I saw in his eyes he said it cannot be
He (unintelligible) a world of fantasy
how can I tell him this is my reality

Just take(?) the wings & fly away
up into the wind
Above the trees you glide with ease
rounding back again

La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la

I drew a picture of a pair of wings
because I want to fly

La la la la la la la...
