Lyrics

Long Lost Dreamer

Written By: Thomas Caudery

A man walks down the avenue
his shoes are white the sky is blue
The days are long

He doesn't mind the gentle breeze
the open air is what he needs
but something's wrong

Within a small amount of time
he has himself a glass of wine
and someone thinks he should go home to bed

And then at home he lies alone
as cold as ice as still as stone
the troubles of the world go through his head

He finds a way he can escape
but in his mind it's still too late
he tries and then

He wakes up to reality
it's never what it used to be
he cries again

"I'm tired of saying why" says he
"I'll push you all away from me
and find my way"

He plunges into open space
just vanishes without a trace
he feels at home when he is far away

He's a long lost dreamer now
wants to make it doesn't know how
he's hoping time will tell

He wants to save the world
fall in love with a beautiful girl
and she'd love him as well

He wakes up from the dream he had
he isn't feeling all too bad
the fall of night

A starlit heaven turns him on
and all his troubles come undone
he once was wrong but now he thinks he's right

Within a small amount of time
he has himself a glass of wine
and thinks that he should stay at home in bed

And then at home he lies alone
he feels now that the cold has gone
the beauty of the world goes through his head

He's a long lost dreamer now
wants to make it doesn't know how
he's hoping time will tell
