Words and music by John Kay

I recall when they would say
No one lives for just one day
Don't save dreams that can't be sold
Don't chase rainbows, just their gold
Tried in their way, tried it mine
I won my race before my time
But golden trophies, fancy toys
Don't compare to childhood joys

Walk beside me darlin' come listen to the rain
And watch the rollin' water to ease your pain again
When night comes down to free us, and sorrow's finally gone
I long to hear your secret dreams and rock you in my arms

There lived a nation proud and free
It tried to show us harmony
But we stood much too close to see
To read the hand of destiny
I know a child who's only seen
A sunrise on the silver screen
she never watched the birds in flight
Or saw the dew by morning light

Walk beside me darlin', come hear the howlin' wind
He'll be a true companion, he'll listen like a friend
When night comes down to free us, your sorrow finally gone
I long to hear your secret dreams and rock in my arms
