The Flower (Did You Dream Of Unicorns ?)

This song is by Pearls Before Swine and appears on the album City Of Gold (1971).

Did you dream of unicorns?
Did you dream of broken horns?
Did you dream of roses or did you dream of thorns?

You knew that people die
Before their bodies do
He said : 'Why not use your body before it uses you ?'

Afraid inside your loneliness
Your rules say you are cold
He warmly smiles, softly says : 'Your body's not your soul'.

Skin as soft as eyes
Words as soft as lies
Is it love or just a smile that fades before it dies?

The wizard at midnight says
He has new flowers for old
In the rain of this new morning, will those new flowers grow?

If he takes up his magic
Smiles says he has to run
You fear the flowers will not grow if he takes away the sun.

Skin as soft as eyes
Words as soft as lies
Is it love or just a smile that fades before it dies?

The sound of flowers opening
In a silent blush
Will the petals open or will they all be crushed?

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
As the wafer breaks
Lord, we are not worthy to enter in this place.

Skin as soft as eyes
Words as soft as lies
Is it love or just a smile that fades before it dies?

Then you dream of unicorns
Then you dream of golden horns
Then you dream of roses and then you dream no more.
