"Dakota" as written by and Jerald L Depizzo Marc Andrew Roberge....
I had a dream about you
It was December in the afternoon
You're something pretty and cool
Signing records as you're passing through

You saw everyone as an angel
But what about the thieves?
Who don't know what do
And don't know who to be
You saw everyone as an angel
But what about the thief?
Who took away from you
He took away from you

If you just kept walking on your way
If you just kept walking on your way
If you just kept walking on, walking on, walking on your way

Behind the archway lies a thief
Awaiting double fantasy
He's something evil underneath
Outside Dakota died the symphony

I think everyone has a devil waiting in the wings
When you don't know what to do
And you don't know who to be
You saw everyone as an angel
But what about the thief?
Who took away from you
Took away from you

If you just kept walking on your way
If you just kept walking on your way
If you just kept walking on, walking on, walking on your way

Maybe this is just a nightmare
And I will wake up
We all will wake up
Maybe this is just a nightmare
December afternoons they took away from you

    General CommentThis song is about the loss of one of the most beloved musicans of any time, John Lennon.

    On December 8, 1980 Lennon was shot, just outside of the old Dakota apartment building in New York City.

    It is a brilliant song, by one of todays youngest and most fun bands around. The song makes you ask yourself why? and it also makes you wonder what other great things would have come from Lennon if his life wasn't cut short. Its great to see that they are paying homage to one of their heros.


    R.I.P.
    John Lennon
    October 9, 1940 - December 8, 1980
