Long ago when I whirled away
Held a promise of a brand new day
I crossed my fingers for a love to keep
Tornadoes swept me off my feet
Sleeping dogs dream of chasing a ball
Lack of lissome(?) from a tree that falls
I throw down with a raven in the sky
In a graveyard I feel so alive
It’s so cold here, in my bed without my love
I cover my emotions, I’m half dead
And the hours laid as the memories still haunts me, and it’s tearing me apart
There are fireworks exploding in my heart

Love is always just within my grasp, like a ufo its come so fast
Was it real or just in my mind?
I ask the psychic on the telephone line
Fast cars dream of winning the race
Like a cloud that gets stuck in one place
I’m drifting with the autumn leaves
In a parks where I pray for peace
It’s so cold here, in my bed without my love
I cover my emotions, I’m half dead
And the hours laid as the memories still haunts me, and it’s tearing me apart
There are fireworks exploding in my heart

Every now and then I catch a glimpse
of what its like to have some common sense
Black(?) dreams never seem to come true
They are just a pretty song playing out of tune
Flying fish dream of reaching the sky
Water all around them makes them cry
I was never the kind to kiss and tell
Love’s perfect mix of heaven and hell
It’s so cold here, in my bed without my love
I cover my emotions, I’m half dead
And the hours laid as the memories still haunts me, and it’s tearing me apart
There are fireworks exploding in my heart

    General Commentpretty sure it's 'long ago and a world away'

    and 'like a blossom from a tree that falls'

    and 'i float down with the raven in the sky'

    and 'pipe(?) dreams never seem to come true'? it sounds like pipe. which would make sense. well, to me. pipes=marijuana=high=thinking=dreams.

    i dunno though. amazing song (:
