SONG LYRICS

Whale Dreaming – Gar Mac Leman (27/7/2016) (DADGBD)(Key = harp = G)

(Intro) G Bm Cd D Em G Cd D

G Bm Cd
Flying above the cloud
G Bm Cd D
Sighing, soft wings which beat so loud
G Bm Cd
Crying, if I shed a tear
G Bm Cd D
It’ll fall, as the rain you hear
Em Cd D
upon the roof above your head, as you lay sleeping in your bed
G Bm Cd
Dreaming, and now you know
G Bm Cd D
why some nights have seconds which seem to move so slow

Em G Cd D
beyond the speed of light through an endless night of dream
Em G Cd D G (Intro)
your plans take flight, as daylight sets a new scene for your life

G Bm Cd
Drifting in a shallow sunlit sea
G Bm Cd D
dreaming with a whale as it sings a song to me
G Bm Cd
flowing, on through a turquoise sea
G Bm Cd D
smoothly fluking, other whales call to me
Em Cd D
hear their songs feel their minds as they laugh at others still so blind
G Bm Cd
they laugh at me and I can share that laughter
G Bm Cd D
for sharing, it’s just what whales do

Em G Cd D
yet we go on and on, tumbling like a wheel
Em G Cd D G (intro)
so preoccupied we never really feel what others share

(Repeat First Verse and Chorus)(Finish on Intro) + G d g b d g…

DESCRIPTION
One night I had a vivid and fleeting dream. Didn't remember it on wakening. Later that day I was playing guitar and I suddenly remembered the dream. Within a few minutes I had written the song 'Whale Dreaming'.
