Well I said I've sailed the frozen corners of the dark Atlantic Sea
And I drifted on the waves and the mirage beneath
And never have I felt such numb and pointless searchin' true
As when I set my eyes on torched up lands of the mark of you
And no this is not the summer dream she said
It's just the drying of the lawns I'm going to leave out there
She said you follow me like sheep that think this cane could do some harm
But I tell you boy I'm frightened still with a sister's heart
I set my eyes upon the shore whenever you wake up
I'm leavin' 'cause you don't feel what you're dreamin' of
And no this is not the summer dream she said
It's just the drying of the lawns I'm going to leave out there
But I will
