  • Splashdown in the silver screen
    Into a deep dramatic scene
    I swim through the theater
    Or maybe I'm just a dreamer
    Like a kite in the bright midday
    Wonder stole my breath away

    Shy sonata for Mercury
    The stars always sing so pretty
    This picnic will soon depart
    Real life, I'm sad to see you go
    I'll miss you with all my heart
    But I'd rather be alone

    'Cause I couldn't live without
    The sunsets that dazzle in the dusk
    So I'll drag the anchor up
    And rest assured, 'cause dreams don't turn to dust
    Dreams don't turn to dust
    I made for the countryside

    And my eyes never grew so wide
    Apple, raspberry, river blue
    I don't wanna leave without you
    In the sound I'll gladly drown
    Into the emerald underground
    I rub my eyes 'cause it's hard to see

    Surrounded by all this beauty
    This picnic will soon depart
    Real life, I'm sad to see you go
    I'll miss you with all my heart
    But I'd rather be alone
    'Cause I couldn't live without

    The sunsets that dazzle in the dusk
    So I'll drag the anchor up
    And rest assured, 'cause dreams don't turn to dust
    (I'm sad to see you go)
    (But I'd rather be alone)
    When tiger eyes begin making you blush
    When diamonds boast that they can't be crushed
    Let 'em go 'cause dreams don't turn to dust

    This picnic will soon depart
    Real life, I'm sad to see you go
    I'll miss you with all my heart
    But I'd rather be alone
    'Cause I couldn't live without
    The sunsets that dazzle in the dusk

    So I'll drag the anchor up
    And rest assured
    'Cause dreams don't turn to dust
    Dreams don't turn to dust
    Dreams don't turn to dust
    I'll rest assured, 'cause dreams don't turn to dust Writer/s: ADAM R. YOUNG
