  • I dreamt about a tranquil Sunday drive
    A sensory lullaby
    We trade the comics, cartoons, and magazines
    For pistons and gasoline

    We see the road from the bedside
    Parked under the sunshine
    We feel the warmth of the engine so we climb inside
    And take it to the motorway

    Watch the clouds turn into faces it's fun to play
    Shift the gears for years and age a single day
    Until we spill onto Russian Hill

    Past cathedrals filled with God's favorite guests
    Dirty hands feel clean when dressed in their Sunday best
    Treeline village oh so heavenly
    Cross a bridge of gold to landscapes of juniper

    Only Eden is for millionaires

    Watch the clouds turn into faces its fun to play
    Shift the gears for years and age a single day
    Until we spill onto Russian Hill

    I'm pulling through the last stoplight
    We head home past the shoreline
    And through the rear view mirror it all melts away
    'Til we're helpless

    Watch the clouds turn into faces its fun to play
    (We're hopeless)
    We shift the gears for years and age a single day
    (It fades away)
    For like curtains close this sunset matinee
    A dream fulfilled on Russian Hill Writer/s: ANDY STURMER
