DREAMS OF WALKING

Words and Music by Anne M Carley © 2009
MP3 play whole song, hi-fi (broadband)

A portrait of a man with lowered expectations.

He has the possessions of a person with a life
No wonder living in one room is so hard
He has the expectations of a person with a wife
No wonder living in the world is so hard

He does not dream of wings
He dreams of walking
He does not dream of cars
He dreams of walking

He takes the position of a person with a clue
No wonder crying all alone is so hard
He takes on the expression of a person brave and true
No wonder lying all the time is so hard

Let other people travel here to there
Or engineer accord from thinnest air
Or mop up milk as though they’re glad it spilled
Or foster life, or nurture it, or build

He does not dream of wings
He dreams of walking
He does not dream of cars
He dreams of walking

He gives the impression of a person in control
No wonder flying blind at night is so hard
He offers kind concessions like a person with a soul
No wonder dying bit by bit is so hard

He does not dream of wings
He dreams of walking
He does not dream of cars
He dreams of walking….
