Sleepwalking through History

Sleepwalking through history

Bored out of my mind

Languid and lazy

Just passing the time

Like a bird on a wire

I'm free to fly

But I’m shackled to living

Can't get to the sky

 

I met you at Woodstock

We danced in the rain

You had such passion

I had cocaine

You were so small

A waif of a girl

But you heard the call

To change the world

 

Sleepwalking through history

Just dodging the man

Drifting around

Kicking the can

Like a bird on a wire

It's wide open sky

But I'm lacking ambition

Too lazy to fly

 

I met you at Woodstock

We danced in the rain

You had such passion

I had cocaine

You were so small

A waif of a girl

But you heard the call

To change the world

 

I met you at Woodstock

We danced in the rain

You had a future

I had cocaine

You were so small

A waif of a girl

But you heard the call

To change the world

 

Sleepwalking through history

Forty years on

You're still a mystery

You left with the dawn

Like a bird on a wire

I’m free to fly

But I'm lacking the vision

Can't imagine the sky
