Dream Letter

This song is by Tim Buckley and appears on the album Happy Sad (1969).

Lady time, fly away.
I've been thinkin'
'Bout my yesterdays.

Oh please, listen darlin'
To my empty prayer:
Sleep inside my dreams tonight.
All I need to know tonight,
How're you and my child?

Oh is he a soldier or is he a dreamer?
Is he mama's little man?
Does he help you when he can?
Oh does he ask about me?

Ah just like a soldier boy, Ah but I fight in wars
The world never knows about
Oh but I never win them loud
Oh there's no crowds around me

When I get to thinkin' about the old days
When love was here to stay
I wonder if we'd ever tried.
Oh what I'd give to hold you.
