Lyrics

When I was a young man I found an old dream Was as battered and worn a one As you have ever seen I made it some new wings And I painted a nose And I wished so hard Up in the air I rose, singing Carry me, carry me, yeah Carry me above the world Carry me, carry me, carry me And I once loved a girl She was younger than me Her parents kept her Locked up in their life She was crying at night She was wishing she could be free Course mostly I remember her laughing Standing there watching us play For a while there The music would take her away And she'd be singing Carry me, carry me, yeah Carry me above this world Carry me, carry me Carry me above the world

And then there was my mother She was lying in white sheets there And she was waiting to die She said if you'd just Reach underneath this bed And untie these weights I could surely fly She's still smiling but she's tired She'd like to hear that last bell ring You know if she still could, she would Stand up and she could sing Carry me, carry me Carry me above the world Carry me, ooh, carry me, yeah
