Lyrics

I see that you’re a traveller
Although your hanging around
I suppose you’ll soon be gone again
You won’t be brought to ground

It shifts you say when I’m around
It moves under your feet
You might just say I’m wrong
Tell me the dream you had last night

Rain brings colour to your face
The echoes fill the sky
Lighting strikes the same place twice
And only I know why

It’s trying to reach us both again
The thunder’s in the air
Perhaps you think I’m wrong
Tell me the dream you had last night

Though we both are drifters
Suspended out of time
Here we are in these four walls
And I’m inside your mind

Push me out the door again
Block me from your sight
You know that I’m not wrong
Tell me the dream you had last night

You know that I’m not wrong
Tell me the dream you had last night

 

[Hilary Seymour; Mark Seymour]
