Love-Dust Dream [lyric]

Posted on Updated on


Been living underground;
there, water’s deep and most of me drowned.
It’s of no consequence;
tore down some walls — undid all pretence
[climbed off the fence]

I have no table here;
walked on hot coals and burned away fear.
For I’ve lost everything
except this dreamful song that I sing
[flowers I bring]

[1st Refrain]
Love-dust dream hits me
right between my eyes.
Familiar theme takes me by surprise;
there’s a girl — I’m within her thighs…

Look but don’t touch (it seems);
perfection only comes in my dreams.
No compromise from me;
I climb on tightropes over the sea
[need to stay free]

From there I can survey
all of the acts in life’s cabaret.
It’s all a crazy game —
cowboys and whores and seekers of fame
[but love’s not to blame]

[Vocal bridge]
This world’s unreal
Some dreams could be true:
Can’t deny what I feel.
I can’t stay here
I’ve seen her light;
guess I’ll soon disappear

So I stay dreaming there
for on this Earth there’s just solitaire.
Someday my wings will die
then to that realm I’ll not have to ride
[she’ll be by my side]

I know I don’t belong
in earthly trysts except through my song.
When I can sing I fly;
so to this globe I bid you goodbye
[melt through the sky]

[2nd refrain]
Love-dust dream
my recurring theme in white.
She’s imagined and made of light:
That’s the best I can do tonight —

    Haven’t been able to listen to the song yet. But the words are beautiful and universal. I always appreciate your beautiful, thoughtful words. I’ve needed them.
