Pat Garvey
Well somewhere the sun today's soakin' up a cornfield dry
And I know my fingerprints will be brushed away

Just to tell me of your bad dream
Tryin' to hold the wind up with a sail
We turned again and stood upon that gentle land
We could rise up another hot naked wall if we stand tall

Just to tell me it's all a bad dream
Like tryin' to hold the wind up with a sail
Whenever you cry and wake me up and tell me you know
I want to be there to hold you to be of some avail
