Alexi Murdoch: Dream of Flying

"Pale light this morning, woke me
Slow pain I feel
Will not let me be

So much work to do
I don't know if I can
I'm trying so hard, so hard, so hard
But I am just one man

Five years old I climbed up on the wall
My mother warned me but I took no heed
Like all creatures great and small
I took a fall and found out I could bleed

Well these days I'm afraid of everything
Suppose cause everything will die
For who wants to love what they will lose
So much easier to lie

Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning
Actually its more like most of the time
But every now and then when I am sleeping
I still have a dream that I'm flying

And I wake up crying"
