Sonnys Dream   Various Artists

          Sonny lives on a farm,on a wide open space
          Where you take off your sneakers,and give up the race
          And you lay down your head,by the sweet river bed
          But Sonny remembers what his mamma's voice says
          Sonny carries a load but he's barely a man
          That ain't all that you do,still he does what he can
          And he watches the sea,from a room by the stairs
          And a wave keeps on rollin',they've done that for years
          Oh Sonny don't go away,I am here all alone
          And your daddy's a sailor who never comes home
          And the nights get so long,and the silence goes on
          And I'm feeling so tired,I'm not all that strong.....
          And it's a hundred miles to town
          Sonnys never been there
          And he goes to the highway and stands there and stares
          And the mail comes at four
          And the mailman is old
          Oh..but he still has his dreams,full of silver and
          Sonnys dreams can't be real,they're just stories he's
          They're just stars in his eyes,they're just dreams in
          his head
          And he's hungry inside for the wild world outside
          And I know I can't hold him
          Though I tried and I tried I tried........
