Scarecrows Dream


Seldom seen
A scarecrows dream
I hang in the hopes of replacement
Castles tall
I built them all
But I dream that I'm trapped in
The basement.

And if you ever hear me calling out
And if you've been by paupers crowned
Between the worlds of men and
Make-believe
I can be found.

Plans Ive made
A masquerade
Fading in fear of the coming day
Heroes tales
Like nightingales
Wrestle the wind as they run away.

And if you ever hear them calling out
And if you've been by paupers crowned
Between the worlds of men and make-
Believe
I can be found.

Garden gate
An empty plate
Waiting for someone to come and fill
Scarecrows dreams
Like frozen streams
Thirst for the fall
But they're running still.

And if you ever hear me calling out
And if you've been by paupers crowned
Between the worlds of men and
Make-believe
I can be found.'

Looks like fall is inspiring some of your favorite things...
I don't think I've ever heard these lyrics (that I can remember anyway)
Lana G flies weekly and has so many miles that she's like a super dooper regular with Alaska so they generally bump her up to first class. :0)

The lines "But I dream that I'm trapped in the basement" is so true for me...lol..as I'm always down there doing laundry!

Hope all is well Cori! I'm making you cookies tonight :-)

HUgs, Pat
