Straight Back

What can I say this time
Which card shall I play
The dream is not over
The dream is just away
And you will fly like some little wing
Straight back to the sun

The dream was never over
The dream has just begun
The dream has just begun
The dream

Fingers find the ivory keys
And a song begins to begin
Like a wolf on the run
And you will find while in the wind
Something that you lost

The dream was never over, no
The dream was only lost

(Hours and hours of waiting for you)
(So strong and so fleeting)
The dream has just begun
(And hours of waiting for you)
(Meeting)
The dream has just begun
(This way)
Well, the dream has just begun

She remembers how good it can be
He remembers a melody
Oh, in the shadow of my shadow in a gleam
He remembers how good it can be
She remembers a melody
Well, in the shadow of my shadow in a gleam
Whoa….

(Hours and hours of waiting for you)
(So strong and so fleeting)
The dream has just begun
(Hours and hours of waiting this way)
(Meeting me)
The dream has just begun
(Meeting this way)

Straight back now

(Hours and hours of)
(So strong and so)

Straight back
Straight back
Straight back, yeah

He remembers a melody
She remembers how good it can be

Straight back
Straight back
Straight back, now
