Another dream i had...this song has a lot of imagery from my childhood in it.

There are cicadas in the beginning, from Wickham Park, and the frogs at the end are from my yard. There's also a bit of Charlie sniffing in there but it's hard to hear.

You're not really supposed to play favorites, I'm told, but this one is my favorite. Don't tell the others.


in the blurry dawn
how we carry on
never giving thought to the waning of days
is it time for school?
is the work all done?
will mother soon be calling us
to lie in our bunks? 

gone away are those days

in the month arcane
our manor was ablaze
tried to save the day but our legs were lame
when i got the news
took a girl like you 
wore our fancy shoes
to the freedom parade

gone away are those days

i was forest green
you were tangerine
time to dream our dreams
but our dreams were all wrong
full of emptiness
but how you wore that dress
and how you jumped into my lap
and sang me that song  

gone away are those days
