dreaming of the sea

I ran across these lyrics I wrote back in 2003 when I was working on a 2nd album that I never ended up recording…long story…

Since I’m in this vein now of looking through old stuff and mining for gold, basically I thought I’d throw these up there…yes, it’s true, I have a penchant for nature-theme metaphor in my writing.

Dreaming of the Sea
ADC 2003

Along a stretch of lonely desert
A path of shifting, subtle sand
I am a traveler on the journey
And I am dreaming of the sea

Picked up a lost and lucky fossil
Too long without the gift of life
Another traveler on the journey
Another dreaming of the sea.

I know a little of the story
I’ve seen a glancing at the map
I’m left to wander in this desert
Only the stars to guide
And a light on the far side

And on a cold and quiet evening
A moment shivers on the trail
Another traveler on the journey
Another dreaming of the sea

The sky’s a wide expanse above me
God in His heaven looking in
Another traveler on the journey
Another dreaming of the sea

I’m getting pieces of the story
I’ve had a glancing of the map
I’m only walking in the desert
I’m only dreaming of the sea
