"One Day I Slowly Floated Away (Demo)" as written by and Sherri/dupree Dupree....
One day I slowly floated away
One day I slowly floated away
All the war horses wore rubber bands
To hide their hooves from sinking sand
The commander in charge was hoping that
Their destiny was not to die

Wake up in the morning
I shall wake up and so shall you
And I wake up, the sun is beautiful
And it is warming you and I
Fragile as we lie

Hard to foresee the future
Our bodies are growing thin
Glimpsing the peeling paint of
The nurse's ivory chin
You've got a lot of nerve coming here
Your eyes are beating rhythms way
Faster than the speeding bullet
That took the life of your radio

Wake up in the morning
I shall wake up and so shall you
And I wake up, the sun is beautiful
And it is warming you and I
Fragile as we lie

And in the corner chair, soft and soap-scented
My darling cries apologies
We foresee the mercy
That's been shown my young limbs
Will not go unthanked or unseen

Wake up in the morning
I shall wake up and so shall you
And I wake up, the sun is beautiful
And it is warming you and I
Fragile as we lie

    General Commentso yea, i kinda hate being the first one to write something since i posted this, but i think i like the lyrics for this version better. it's more romantic i think. also, i like how both versions have different meanings. the other one is about war and this one is about moving.
