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
