Circus Dream

06:28

Lyrics

 

Silver Lake after all

mountains rise, and then they fall

into the sea

where the lonesome birds they call

and I'll be,

I'll be standing tall

 

It's a circus dream

It's a circus dream

 

A mellow afternoon

Familiar fears come back too soon

and in my mind

all my love and losses strewn

like shadows,

behind the moon

 

It's a circus dream

It's a circus dream

 

Sunset faces pass me by

a traffic horn is bleating "Why?"

Nervous clouds drifting through a purple sky

And all I can do,

all I can do is try

 

It's a circus dream

It's a circus dream
