Half a Dream Away

We're just half a dream away

Sitting on our fences

Building up defenses

Making up rules by which we play

We're just half way down the road

Staking our positions

But stupid superstitions

Only give fools too heavy a load

The magpie screeched and my window is shattered

Her body's bruised but her soul's not battered

The fireman tried but the hose was frozen

The cupboard's bare but the door needs closing

We spend half our time away

From being where we want to

And seeing who it's fun to

Not blaming ourselves for our mistakes

We spend half a dream away

Just looking out of windows

Waiting for a signal

Waiting for night to return to day

The tree was bare but the birds were singing

The milk turned sour but my thirst needs quenching

The meat was dead and I need me feeding

The room was cold but the night was freezing

The rainbow frowned when the sun was shining

A baby's snatched on a beautiful morning

A dog runs wild and the brakes are screaming

A church on fire is struck by lightning

The dead man's hands had beautiful fingers

The princess frowned at her lovers mistress

She went insane and poisoned the children

A teacher's drowned and a child is laughing

We're just half a dream away
