reggie miles Writing songs in your sleep (62* d) RE: Writing songs in your sleep 27 Mar 11


This one just came to me in a dream. I awoke and wrote it down

Life Dreamed by Reggie Miles 6AM 3/25/11


I met a young woman with long blonde hair
Who wanted to learn a new way and get out of where
She found herself, trapped inside.

I asked her to fly with me through the air
Together we could both get far away from there
And leave ourselves behind

Sweet temptation tortured me
I wondered whether and how I'd ever be free
And if I could afford to pay the price

Ultimate love for humanity
Organized institutions didn't seem to be
The right way to sacrifice

But she wasn't sure that my path was true
I heard her praying for guidance and what to do
And I wondered if I lost her there

The sound of her voice singing soft and low
Her prayer made me think that I had to go
And I wondered did she really care

I tarried too long, wasted too much time
Dreaming and hoping her love would be mine
I've got to get back on the road

No, this place doesn't seem to be
The kind of life for a guy like me
I'm not certain I can carry her load

I met a young woman with long blonde hair
And dreamed of a life that we could share
Far away from here
