In My Dream

lyrics

I’m running along with my father he’s running like a boy we’re running along in slow motion and he falls in the leaves like a child strong and free in my dream in my dream
I’m running along with my mother she’s laughing like a girl she’s telling me about all her hopes and dreams there is light in her eyes she is open, she is wise in my dream in my dream
in my dream it’s October and the leaves are floating down like tiny yellow boats each finding their own unique, particular way to the ground
I’m running along with my sister our pigtails flying free we’re racing ahead of our sweet baby brother there is joy on our faces we are sure of our places in my dream in my dream
and the dog runs ahead of us always almost-out-of-sight pulling us further into the golden autumn light a lighthouse for the family following that sweet familiar tail pulling us closer on the troubled family trail
I’m running along with my family we’re running through the leaves we’re running along in slow motion we are happy we are laughing no one’s missing we are holy in my dream in my dream in my dream we are holy in my dream
