Dakota

Album: Stories Of A Stranger (2005)
  • I had a dream about you
    It was December in the afternoon
    You're something pretty and cool
    Signing records as you're passing through

    You saw everyone as an angel
    But what about the thieves?
    Who don't know what do
    And don't know who to be
    You saw everyone as an angel
    But what about the thief?
    Who took away from you
    He took away from you

    If you just kept walking on your way
    If you just kept walking on your way
    If you just kept walking on, walking on, walking on your way

    Behind the archway lies a thief
    Awaiting double fantasy
    He's something evil underneath
    Outside Dakota died the symphony

    I think everyone has a devil waiting in the wings
    When you don't know what to do
    And you don't know who to be
    You saw everyone as an angel
    But what about the thief?
    Who took away from you
    Took away from you

    If you just kept walking on your way
    If you just kept walking on your way
    If you just kept walking on, walking on, walking on your way

    Maybe this is just a nightmare
    And I will wake up
    We all will wake up
    Maybe this is just a nightmare
    December afternoons they took away from you Writer/s: JERRY DE PIZZO, MARC ANDREW ROBERGE, RICHARD JOE ON

  • Anthony from NjIt was a nightmare. Unfortunately never awakened from. I was 15 and came downstairs in the morning. My dad handed me the news paper saying "They shot John Lennon."
    I was numb and the pain of Dec 9th ( the day I learned of Lennon's death) still lingers. It will never leave. It was sad. Dec 8 was a warm sunny
    Monday. Tuesday Dec 9 it rained. As if the sky was crying.
    Great song
  • Pepper from Athens, TnI knew it was about John when I just read the title.
    100 points to gryffindor.
