Cat Stevens – Novim's Nightmare lyrics

Once I had a dream that worried me
Like a drunken gilloteen lingering
Just above my head
Why, oh why, oh why, oh why
Why was I born and I'm cursed repeatedly
Who would know if I should die
No one needed me
(do do do)
(do do do do do)
(similiar do's following piano melody)
Dark, and empty was the place to which I've come
Cold, and silent was the house my name was on
Name, who and a tomb in everyone
So dark and empty was the place to which I've come
All at once my bones began to change
I was tall and young again
Sweet as rain
Falling on the stars
Who.. Who.. Who.. Oo (more desperate oo's)
Who is he, who am I
What layed inbetween
How can I say goodbye no one let me live
Now it's too late
Too open the door
La la la la la, la la la la, la la la la
