Linda Paloma

Linda Paloma

At the moment the music began and you heard the guitar player starting to sing
You were filled with the beauty that ran through what you were imagining
Dreaming of scenes from those songs of love
I was the endless sky and you were my beautiful dove

Now the music that played in your ears grows a little bit fainter each day
And you find yourself looking through tears at the love you feel slipping away
Though it's not the kind of love you might hope to find
If tears could release the heart from the shadows preferred by the mind

Like a wind that comes up in the night caressing your face while you sleep
Love will fill your eyes with the sight of a world you can't hope to keep
Dreaming on after that moment's gone
The light in your lover's eyes disappears with the light of the dawn

But the morning brings strength to your restless wings
And some other lover sings to the sun's bright corona
I know all about these things, Linda Paloma
Fly away, Linda Paloma
