Incredible String Band – Dreams Of No Return lyrics

Dreams of no return
Waking in the early dawn
Dreams of no return
Waking in the early dawn

To whom I sourly yearned in my weakest spell
But what I could not know you could not show me

Old hotel the walls weep and the door leans
The blackbird quits the eaves
And the lonesome spider sings
Saw my sweet and soothing prayer
Was air

Why should you care
I never saw the tomb you they laid
There was already too much shade
What could it bring
What if you know
I need no hand of yours
But still I feel you kiss
While I have words to sing
Perhaps you treasure nothing
From before

In the time I had no friends
I held your picture like a tongueless bell
When I really saw I was wrong
I wrote this song to seem a fond farewell
I've been in the north west world
Looking out on an endless view
When you were any reason why
Was I really any use to you
