Day dreaming is great. It gives us a chance to escape.


Only Dreaming-Cinderella
By Jim Stewart c 1980

After all of these years of dreaming

I finally found a goldmine.

Someone who wouildn't hurt me.

Someone who wouldn't change my mind.

I'm Living in a fairy tale

Or acting out a nursery rhyme.

I found my Cinderella

Like stepping out in time.

You see it's like living out a dream

after all of these years.

Hiding behind this mask

And looking through all the tears.

Once in a while you see sunshine.

You don't know where to start.

You just hope it never ends

And you never see the dark.

The clock strikes twelve

It's time for us to go.

Off into the night, where I do not know.

But I still have that glass slipper

That she has left behind

I dream of my Cinderella

Almost all the time.
