First Hymn From Grand Terrace Lyrics
Went flying across the waving grass like...
Like silver bells.
Against the curtain that the sky had made.
Ooooh, and so we played.
It was a sunny day, and so we lay
Beneath the rock that sheltered us
From passing planes.
And the earth caught fire when you turned,
But nothing burned.
There were nights when the lights would take us nowhere
For just a little while.
Cars would pass, and we were out of gas
But we didn't care,
Even though we walked a mile.
There was a deejay in LA
We used to tune in at night
To hear our favorite song.
We always heard it at that perfect time
Up on that hill we climbed.
And now you're gone and I'm alone
And though they say I should be safe, secure, and sane.
Oh, I still remember yesterday,
And the games... that children... play...
