Dreams To Come

from by I Ching Quartet

lyrics

When I look back, when I was young
moments that I had, and dreamed of them to come
but I only grabbed a few
afraid of what was new, and unkown

there were girls to close to grab,
dreams to far to have
I didn't know I wanted to taste the wine
I thought that I was doing, thought that I was doing just fine

walking alone on empty tracks waiting for the midnight train

I had some big ideas, thought of them as true
picked up my guitar, got in with a crew
and I felt good in that tribe
thought that they could carry me high

my dreams were closer now
had some girls who taught me how
this was my first taste, my first taste of wine
and I thought that I was doing, thought that I was doing just fine

kicking my ball around, looking for someone to play
walking alone on empty tracks waiting for the midnight train

I was leaving, and I was free
this feeling inside of me
I was living my destiny
Had no worries to bother me

there will be many who will leave, cause everyone must grow
changes happen quick, what you think you know
the hands that were to lift me high
went out to try their own try

but there were dreams that I still had
and moments that would come around
I tasted each and every one
and to myself I found
I was in the mystery zone
no cover to be blown, when you are mystified

now I'm grabbing my girl to dance the night away
kicking my ball around, looking for someone to play
walking alone on empty tracks waiting for the midnight train

If I'm leaving, it's cause I'm not free
this feeling inside of me
I'll keep living to get set free
got my worries, but they don't bother me
