Ocean Dreamer

Album: If You Really Want It (2018)
  • He stands at the window in some foreign hotel
    And closes the door on the day
    Flips through his memories and wishes them well
    And waits for the ocean of dreaming to take him away
    The land is receding in to the distance
    With every motion of the sails
    Traveling in to the arms of existence
    Behind eternity's veils
    The infinite horizon beckons with silence
    In the end silence always prevails
    Every dream leaves a trail
    Every dream leaves a trail
    The brick and the mortar of earthly desire disappears
    In the beginning there was the end
    Across the folds of space-time and back again
    You weave a tangled tapestry
    In time and human history
    Through where and why and what will be
    With truth and crystal clarity
    You climb in to eternity
    'Til the morning
    'Til the morning
    He stands at the window in some foreign hotel
    And opens the door on the day Writer/s: Raul Sterling Midon
