I've said it before, a songwriter is an interpreter of emotion. This is one of those songs that came to me in an aching whirlwind, after a night of inspiration that came in the form of an open mic night in Leicester, where I played and also got to hear some amazing music by other musicians I am proud to name among those I know personally and am glad to have as friends. Yes, that was a happy experience. But, as often happens, happy experiences make way for thoughtful times of morose reflection... on the sadder aspects of friendship, hopes and dreams....maybe that's just me, but, again, experience tells me, it's not (not just me, that is).


Oh, I'm thinking like a dreamer today
Strings in my mind I want to play
A thousand words in my mouth
I want to say

Oh, why did you have to come my way?
Why did you have to go away?
Why, why couldn't you stay?

And, I wonder where you are
I wonder if it's too far
Too far to reach you

And, I'm thinking like the hopeless that I am
Oh, I've tried and tried to understand
But, it's hard when you're a dreamer
Without a dream

And, I wonder where you are
Yes, I wonder where you are
Oh, I wonder, I wonder where you are
Is it too far?
