LIFE IN A DREAM OF PARADISE

Written by: Berton Marrega

A SILENT SLUMBER TOOK MY HEART TO A DREAMLAND
MY OWN THOUGHTS CAME UP AND A DREAM STARTED TO PLAY
A RISING SUN IN A NEW DAY MEANT THE DAWN OF A PERFECT DAY
I NEVER HOPE TO SEE ANYTHING GOOD; NOTHING WAS KIND SO TO SAY

WITH MY LONELY HEART, OFF I SET FOR A TRIP THAT WOULD REST MY LIFE
UP TO THE MOUNTAINS OF PEACE I PROCEEDED WITH THE SUPERB RIDE
ALONG THE MOUNTAIN STREAM I DISCOVERED MY DESIRES OF LIFE
I THOUGHT DAYS WOULD NEVER REACH THAT POINT OF EXHAUSTION
I FOUND MY PEACE UNDER THE SHADOW OF THE LARGE OLIVE PLANTATION 

A WONDERFUL MOMENT SOON CAME TO MY COMFORT AND ALL WAS PERFECT
NO DOUBT THERE WAS TRUE FREEDOM AN INSTANT THAT PAID MY HEART
COOL WINDS PEACEFULLY BLEW AS ALL BIRDS SANG TO IMPRESS 
WATER IN THE MOUNTAIN STREAM SOUNDED SO GREAT SIMPLY THE TO MY BEST AND I WAS FREE

ALL MY TROUBLES WERE PUT TO REST WHEN JOY FILLED MY LIFE
IT NEVER LASTED LONGER SINCE IT WAS A MIND’S EYE
WHEN I OPENED MY EYES I COULD SEE THE ASCENDING DAWN
IN FACT MY DREAM WAS OVER AND A STRANGE FEELING WAS BORN
INDEED TO FIND TRUE PEACE I HAD TO WORK MY FINGERS TO THE BONE
