dream lyrics – priscilla ahn

dream

i was a little girl
alone in my little world
who dreamed of a little home for me.
i played pretend between the trees,
and fed my houseguests bark and leaves,
and laughed in my pretty bed of green.

i had a dream
that i could fly
from the highest swing.
i had a dream.

long walks in the dark
through woods grown behind the park,
i asked god who i’m supposed to be.
the stars smiled down on me,
god answered in silent reverie.
i said a prayer and fell asleep.

i had a dream
that i could fly
from the highest tree.
i had a dream.

now i’m old and feeling grey.
i don’t know what’s left to say
about this life i’m willing to leave.
i lived it full and i lived it well,
there’s many tales i’ve lived to tell.
i’m ready now,
i’m ready now,
i’m ready now
to fly from the highest wing.

i had a dream.
