I wrote this song yesterday, out of the blue. Or out of the blues -
I was feeling a bit down and as often happens at that time, songs pop up and make themselves known and if I’m lucky enough I catch them and write them down.

I had a dream
Thought it was real
I left my soul behind
When I awoke
I saw the sparks of an open fire

I said
I won’t let my fear get in the way
I won’t let my tears flow one more day
Too many times
I let what was mine
Fly away

I had a dream
Thought it was real
I left my heart behind
When I awoke
I heard the rain like an angry cry

I said
I won’t let my fear get in the way
I won’t let my tears flow one more day
Too many times
I let what was mine
Fly away

Who knows why
Time is like a shadow in our mind
Who knows how
We’re going to leave and what we’ll leave behind

I had a dream
Thought it was real I left my hope behind
When I awoke I saw the truth in a rainbow sky


I said
I won’t let my fear get in the way
I won’t let my tears flow one more day
This is the time
I’ll let what is mine
Fly away
