David Crosby – Columbus lyrics

{by Noel Brazil)

Better keep your distance from this whale
Better keep your boat from going astray
Find yourself a partner and treat them well
Try to give them shelter night and day
'Cause here in the blue light
Far away from the fireside
Things can get twisted and crazy and crowded
You can't even feel right

So I dream of columbus
Every time the panic starts
I dream of columbus
With your maps and your beautiful charts
I dream of columbus
There's an ache in a traveling heart

See how the cormorant swoops and dives
Must be a thrill to go that deep
Down to the basement of this life
Down to where the mermaid gently sleeps
Not like here in the blue light
Far away from the fireside
Where things get twisted and
Haunted and crowded
You can't even feel right

So I dream of columbus
Every time the panic starts
I dream of columbus
With your maps and your beautiful charts
I dream of columbus
There's an ache in a traveling heart

As the tide must ebb and flow
I am dragged down under
I wait the livelong day
For an end to my hunger

So I dream of columbus
Every time the panic starts
I dream of columbus
With your maps and your beautiful charts
I dream of columbus
There's an ache in a traveling heart
