"Julia Dream" as written by and Roger Waters....
Sunlight bright upon my pillow
Lighter than an eiderdown
Will she let the weeping willow
Wind his branches round
Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams
Every night I turn the light out

Waiting for the velvet bride
Will the scaly armadillo
Find me where I'm hiding
Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams
Will the misty master break me
Will the key unlock my mind
Will the following footsteps catch me
Am I really dying
Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams

    General CommentGreat song. Apparently the 1st PF song with David Gilmour on lead vocals. Lyrics are inaccurate though.

    Sunlight bright upon my pillow,
    Lighter than an eiderdown.
    Will she let the weeping willow
    Wind his branches 'round?

    Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams

    Every night I turn the light out,
    Waiting for the velvet bride.
    Will the scaly armadillo
    Find me where I'm hiding?

    Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams

    Will the misty master break me?
    Will the key unlock my mind?
    Will the following footsteps catch me?
    Am I really dying?

    General CommentThe song is pretty much self-explanitory.

    A longing for that special one
    and conditioning yourself to be able to search for them before its too late.

    I'm not sure about the armadillo, but it completes the song.

    General CommentNo the lyrics are right. This song is so beautiful. Even though the guitar is pretty easy it still sounds good.

    General Commenti'm also not so sure about the lyrics... in some lyrics i found on the net it's:
    "Will she let the weeping willow
    Wind his branches round"

    also, in some lyrics it's:
    "Julia dream, dreamboat queen, queen of all my dreams"

    don't know what's correct then...

    General Commentmost of the guys decifering of lyrics leave something to be desired
    'Julia Dream-dreamboat Queen, Queen of all my dreams'
    is correct

    General Commentagree with ASDmlc..dreamy.
    Does anyone know about the strange short echo of the words as the song is sung along. its like washing the words down..lends it a different melody altogether. u can actually feel the words sound like water drops..

    General CommentThis is a stunningly beautiful song, which earns it about three stars out of five. It has a twist about dying at the end, which earns it an extra star out of five. That gives the song 4/5 stars. I am dying to find that fifth star, because I love the song. The entire relics album contains some great work, but this is near the top.
