Dragonfly On Bay Street

This song is by Ron Sexsmith and appears on the album Cobblestone Runway (2002).

Used to work as a messenger
Spent my days riding elevators
In the heart of the business world
Till one day there came a sign
In the form of a dragonfly on Bay Street

Buzzing round from tower to tower
At the twilight of the working hour
Had he taken a wrong turn?
Was he lost without a trace?
Just like us? Dragonfly on Bay Street
In the crowd without a face
Dragonfly on Bay Street

No fields for miles around
As through the underground I go
What was it telling me
It's better to be free
Or maybe nothing at all?

Now I work in another field
Spend my time keeping my eyes peeled
For a sign that'll lead me home
'Cause, lord, I feel so out of place
Just like that dragonfly on Bay Street
I'm lost without a trace
Dragonfly on Bay Street
In the crowd without a face
Dragonfly on bayBay Street
It's all or nothing at all
