Donnie Iris – Fade Away lyrics

Last night I woke up dreaming
I dreamed you were on a boat
You were sailing down the Cuyahoga River
And the guard pulled up the moat

Baby, come back to me
Baby, come back to me
Baby, come back to me
Don't fade away

And the sharks they fill the water
Yeah, they really the like the mud
They keep me at a distance
And really smell the blood

Nothing I can say
You won't believe me anyway
But I hope one day will come
When you're older
When you're older

The truth is veiled and fuzzy
And the water's thick with fog
I was drowning in a sea of isolation
I was reaching for the log
And log became a branch
And the branch became a tree
And the true became a crucifix
It's where you all have hung me
