lyrics

DREAM IN BLUE
words and music by Britt K. Arnesen

The other night I had a dream in blue
Counting stars for every time I lose you
Calling out to the lonesome moon and
Waiting on a white flower to bloom

Float along the river's lazy bend
See the willows standing hand in hand
They sing about my lovesick blues and
Drown me in their mournful music

The other night you had a dream in red
Lost your sleep to the noise of the unsaid
Strange sounds from the open window
Wander out to the ghost who knew you

Lay me down upon the stones I threw
Close my eyes so they can't accuse you
Make believe that you didn't do it
Innocent until they prove it

Tell your alibi until it's true
Swallow all the pleasures of your choosing
Hear the barn owl wondering "who?"
He's there to watch your every move

The other night I had a dream in blue
Counting stars for every time I lose you
Calling out to the lonesome moon and
Drowning in my mournful music
