From the recording Songs from "The Scrolls of Nef"
from the novel "The Scrolls of Nef" by Gary Glickman. Music by The Dream Brothers
Sometimes, when you’re lying beside me,
I know we leave this place,
Weightless, with you beside me,
I know I am awake:
Sweet magic carpet ride we take,
Higher than we’ve ever gone before.
Where have we been?
What are we waiting for?
Why should we hide? We travel wide.
We know the countryside.
Who cares what other people might say?
Why should we care?
Why don’t we dare to make our magic stay?
Welcome to the lifetime,
Where you have everything you ever wanted.
Everything you ever waited for,
Ever dared to contemplate a prayer for,
Or make the same silent shared wish for.
Sometimes when you’re lying beside me,
I know we leave this place.
Where do we go? I don’t know.
Why don’t we try to take our magic carpet ride—
weightless with you beside me ...
