A LAND FAR AWAY
I travelled a hundred miles|
But I only saw two,
Because I fell asleep
And had a dream of me and you.
In a land far away
Where the golden sands lay,
With a cool breeze blowing
Off the beautiful ocean blue.
Romance blossomed under the heaven's
As we watched the big orange fade,
This was pure paradise on earth
Passionate love was made.
Our love for each other was ineffable
I wished this night would never end,
Just then I was woken with reality
As the coach driver braked hard on a bend.
I banged my head on the glasss window
Cursing that I had been robbed of my dream,
Of beauty and love and all that went with it
It didn't matter I was the cat that got the cream.
