Lyrics

ONLY JUST A DREAMER song lyrics by Joel Sattler 

 

I met a Don Quixote 

while walking on the beach 

we stood and watched the sun come up 

forever out of reach 

he told me of a windy war 

of giants flying with flags held high 

I knew he was a dreamer 

so I just let it slide 

he was only just a dreamer 

with a vision that was his alone

on a battlefield he could call his own 

and so he had to ride 

 

I saw a girl on a mountaintop 

who wanted so to fly 

and all the rainclouds in the world 

were gathered in her eyes 

she spread her wings and lifted up 

and all that was left were the tears I cried  

she was only just a dreamer 

and I never found out why 

she was only just a dreamer 

and she disappeared into the wild 

singing like a happy child 

with her arms open wide 

 

I found a god chained to a rock 

who still refused to pray 

a thousand chains they all were locked  

forever and a day 

what was the blood that damned his life? 

what was the curse that buried him alive? 

guess he was just a dreamer 

guilty of the sin of pride 

guess that he was just a dreamer 

with a dream that must create the earth 

from death until the last rebirth 

with a spark still left inside
