Took a friend I found

Cross some blood red river

Never did find my way home

Bm D F# F#7
Why must people always want what they can't have

Bm D F# F#7
Why must people always grab what they'd never grasp

Chorus:

Bm
How did we get so far

D F#
How did we move so fast away

F#7 Bm
From the lilac-lillied lake

D F#
I'm sure we used to stay

F#7
Is it only a dream away

Bm D F# F#7

Verse 2:

Took a raft I found
Cross some blood red river
Never did find my way home
In time for my dinner

Pre-Chorus 2:

Why must people always want what they never have
Why is it a crime to miss a part of you that's bled

Bm D F#
Only a dream away ...

Bm D F#
Away ... yeah

Verse 3:

Lost a friend I found
Down some blood red river
Never did find my way home
In time to forget her

Pre-Chorus 3:

Why must people always want what they can't have
Why must people always take but forget to ask

Chorus

Bm D F#
only a dream ... only a dream away

Bm D F#
away ... yeah

Bm D F# Bm
