Speaking Of Dreams

Baez Joan

Speaking of dreams 
Here we are in the glistening streets of Gay Paree 
Playing the Gipsy Kings 
After the rain and taking tea at the Ritz in boots and jeans 
With a teenage girl who said that it would be her grandest dream 
And speaking of dreams, I really must say 
I couldn't have dreamed you up 
Nor the way you burst into my life, rattled my cage 
And woke my sleeping demons up 

You were not yet born 
When my career began in '59 
We're a sign of the times 
Who cares if you are a breath of spring and I am vintage wine 
We come from two different worlds 
Like every other couple on the Rue de Rivoli 
You spent your youth in the rainforests of distant Camaroon 
Your father was a Navy captain, I am the Queen of Hearts 
And the daughter of the moon 

Speaking of dreams 
You took me to see the paintings of Paul Gaughin 
Speaking of dreams 
We stood in the midst of waterfalls, flaming trees 
Golden dogs and shining Tahitian ladies 
But it was you, not Paul Gaughin 
Who stopped my heart and then 
Started my life over again 

And if you feel as I do 
That we've erased the lines between reality 
And all our painted dreams 
Then take me down to where the Gipsies sing 
The songs their mothers knew 
Tie bright ribbons in my hair 
Lean on the wind and watch me while I dance for you 

And carry me off to the rainforests of distant Camaroon 
Tell me that you've always know that 
I am the Queen of Hearts 
And the daughter of the moon
