Every Precious Dream And Vision Underneath The Stars

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY. For this delightful Sunday, Jim has chosen the theme WHO/WHAT/WHEN/WHERE/WHY/HOW.

amazing.jpgNow when I first saw this theme (almost a month ago, I thought of lots of songs with one of these words in. But I wasn’t satisfied with any of them really. Then I thought of a song that I don’t believe features any of those words…and yet, when I listen to the lyrics, my reaction is “what? who is this song about? when and where did they do all these amazing things? why don’t I know this person? how on earth was it possible to all these things?” Who cares!!! What a song!

with him.jpgI am going to admit, I have loved this song since the first time I heard it, I think a lot do. So, if you are going to listen to this song on this wonderful wonderful Sunday, think of me, exactly where I should be, in Australia, with my gorgeous Goldfinch!  Yes I am with the man who makes my pulse race! Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!

Have a wonderful Sunday whatever you are doing, whoever you are with and wherever and however you spend the day. You know where I am and why I am here!!!

I pictured a rainbow
You held it in your hands
I had flashes
But you saw the plan
I wandered out in the world for years
While you just stayed in your room
I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of the moon
The whole of the moon

You were there at the turnstiles
With the wind at your heels
You stretched for the stars
And you know how it feels
To reach too high
Too far
Too soon
You saw the whole of the moon

I was grounded
While you filled the skies
I was dumbfounded by truths
You cut through lies
I saw the rain-dirty valley
You saw Brigadoon
I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of the moon

I spoke about wings
You just flew
I wondered, I guessed and I tried
You just knew
I sighed
But you swooned
I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of the moon
The whole of the moon

With a torch in your pocket
And the wind at your heels
You climbed on the ladder
And you know how it feels
To get too high
Too far
Too soon
You saw the whole of the moon
The whole of the moon

Unicorns and cannonballs
Palaces and piers
Trumpets, towers, and tenements
Wide oceans full of tears
Flags, rags, ferry boats
Scimitars and scarves
Every precious dream and vision
Underneath the stars

Yes, you climbed on the ladder
With the wind in your sails
You came like a comet
Blazing your trail
Too high
Too far
Too soon
You saw the whole of the moon
