    Long ago a young man sits
    And plays his waiting game
    Things are not the same it seems
    As in such tender dreams

    Slowly passing sailing ships
    And Sunday afternoons
    Like people on the moon I see
    Are things not meant to be

    Where do those golden rainbows end
    Why is this song so sad
    These are the dreams I've dreamed my friend
    Loving the love I love to love
    Is just a word I've heard
    When things are being said

    Stories my poor head has told me
    Cannot stand the cold
    And in between what might have been
    And what has come to pass
    A misbegotten guess alas
    And bits of broken glass

    Where do your golden rainbows end
    Why is the song I sing so sad
    Dreaming the dreams I've dreamed my friend
    Loving the love I love to love
    To love to love to love

    Oh no no no no
