Summer Fly (Cheryl Wheeler)

Summer Fly In another younger day I could dream the time away In the universe inside my room And the world was really mine from June to September And if it wasn't really so, I waslucky not to know And I was lucky not to wonder why 'Cause a pure and golden high is all that I remember A summer fly was buzzin' every night when I was young In the gentle world my childlike senses knew And the world was just my cousin and the wind was just the tongue In the voice my lonely moments listened to. And I look at me today all the dreams have gone away And I'm where I never thought I'd be Seein' things I never thought I'd see happenin' to me And I lay awake at night till the darkness goes to light Hearin' voices callin' out my name Dronin' over and again the same message through me Cryin' who's your partner, who's your darlin' Who's your baby now? Who wakes up at night to pull you in? It don't matter, you just make her lonely anyhow, Don't know why you even try to win. (c) Cheryl Wheeler, 1987
