Columbus

Noel Brazil
Better keep your distance from this whale Better keep your boat from going astray Find yourself a partner and treat them well Try to give them shelter night and day 'Cause here in this blue light Far away from the fireside Things can get twisted and crazy and crowded You can't even feel right So you dream of Columbus Ever time the panic starts You dream of Columbus With your maps and your beautiful charts You dream of Columbus With an ache in your travelling heart See how the cormorant swoops and dives Must be some thrill to go that deep Down to the basement of this life Down to where the mermaid gently sleeps Not like here in this blue light Far away from the fireside Where things can get twisted and haunted and crowded You can't even feel alright And as tide must ebb and flow I am dragged down under And I wait the livelong day For an end to my hunger So I dream of Columbus Every time that the panic starts I dream of Columbus With my maps and my beautiful charts I dream of Columbus And there's peace in a traveling heart I dream of Columbus
