Indigo Girls – Long Ago And Far Away lyrics

Long ago a young man sits
And plays his waiting game
But things are not the same it seems
As in such tender dreams

Slowly passing sailing ships
On sunday afternoon
Like the people on the moon I've seen
Are things not meant to be

Where do those golden rainbows end
(where do the rainbows end)
Why is this song so sad
(why is this song so sad)
Dreaming the dreams I dream my friend
(dreaming the dreams I dream)
Loving the love I love

To love is just a word I've heard
When things are being said
Stories my poor head has told me
Can not stand the cold

And in between what might have been
And what has come to pass
Are misbegotten guests alas
And bits of broken glass

Where do your golden rainbows end
(where do the rainbows end)
Why is the song I sing so sad
(why is this song so sad)
Dreaming the dreams I dream my friend
(dreaming the dreams I dream)
Loving the love I love
To love to love to love

Where do your golden rainbows end
(where do the rainbows end)
Why is the song I sing so sad
(why is this song so sad)
Dreaming the dreams I dream my friend
(dreaming the dreams I dream)
Loving the love I love
To love to love to love
Whoa no no no no no
