Hollyann

Album: Third Stage (1986)
  • In my mind
    I can see reminders of a past decay
    So far behind
    Like the shadows linger at the close of day
    And we could see
    We were timeless dreamers of another day
    And we were free
    In a dawning age we had so much to say

    Oh, the nights you came to me
    A blue jean lady so eager to be free
    And the wind in your long hair blowin' as we stood for the band

    Oh, Hollyann

    Hollyann
    We made the dark into light
    We saw the wrong and the right
    We were for life
    And we would never concede it

    Hollyann
    We left the world behind
    A million hands gave the sign
    We held the line
    Can you believe it?
    Hollyann
    Hollyann

    We could live
    Just to turn the world into our fantasy
    And we could give
    Aquarius was really meant to be

    You and I we were there to see the dawn
    Side by side we had love to carry on
    And I still hear guitars in the air as we sat in the sand

    Oh, Hollyann

    Hollyann
    We made the dark into light
    We saw the wrong and the right
    We were for life
    And we would never concede it

    Hollyann
    We left the world behind
    A million hands gave the sign
    We held the line
    Can you believe it?
