Veiled Voices

An old friend came up to me with this dream
An old friend came up to me with this dream
He told me all he could remember
He told me all he was remembering
I closed my eyes and listened to his voice
I closed my eyes

Saw you dancing in the street using up your feet
How could you ever find
Your way back home to the door, what is it for
When you know he'd lied and left you all alone
So far from home

When it's only beginning
When it's around you everywhere
I will take my time to care
When you start to see that it's been spinning

Like a sparrow in the night you loosened up the tight
Grip around
The sea-shell you picked up to find what may be behind
The oceans breeze that always knew your soul
Told you where to go

When it's only beginning
You realize you're not there
Thought you'd lose but you are winning
When you finally see that it's been spinning

The smile in their eyes could not surprise
Anyone
Who took a glance into their hearts, behind their sighs
Cause he knows who they really are
Who you really are

He will never forget
(You're walking that dirt road again...
He won't believe a word they say
...with the troubles that you had in mind)
He will never forget
To keep them voices away
No, he can never forget
He won't believe a word you say
He's the one that I have met
Be sure he's on your way
