Dream Letter

Performed by Brendan Perry

(NOTE: Lyrics may differ slightly from those shown below)

Lady time fly away
I’ve been thinking about my yesterday

Oh, please listen darlin’ to my empty prayers
Sleep inside my dreams tonight
All I need to know tonight are you and my child

Oh, is he a soldier or is he a dreamer?
Is he mama’s little man?
Does he help you when he can?
Or honey does he ever ask about me?

Just like a soldier boy
I been out fighting wars
That the world never knows about
Oh but I never win them loud
There’s no crowds around me

But when I get to thinkin’
About the old days
When love was here to stay
I wonder if we’d ever tried
Oh, what I’d give to hold him.
