    Lyrics

    I can recall the sound of the wind
    As it blew through the trees and the trees would bend
    I can recall the smell of the rain
    On a hot summer night
    Coming through the screen

    I'd crawl in your bed when the lightning flashed
    And I'd still be there when the storm had passed
    Dead to the world, to the morning cast
    Its light all around your room

    We lived on a street where the tall elm shade
    Was as green as the grass and as cool as a blade
    That you held in your teeth as we lay on our backs
    Staring up at the blue and the blue stared back

    I used to believe we were just like those trees
    We'd grown just as tall and as proud as we pleased
    With our feet on the ground and our arms in the breeze
    Under a sheltering sky

    Twirl me about, and twirl me around
    Let me grow dizzy and fall to the ground
    And when I look up at you looking down,
    Say it was only a dream

    A big truck was parked in the drive one day
    They wrapped us in paper and moved us away
    Your room was no longer next door to mine
    And this kid sister thing was old by that time

    But oh how our dreams went bump in the night
    And the voices downstairs getting into a fight
    And the next day a silence you could cut with a knife
    And feel like a blade at your throat

    Twirl me about and twirl me around
    Let me grow dizzy and fall to the ground
    When I look up at you looking down
    Say it as only a dream

    The day you left home you got an early start
    I watched your car back out in the dark
    I opened the door to your room down the hall
    I turned on the light
    And all that I saw
    Was a bed and a desk and couple of tacks
    No sign of someone who expects to be back
    It must have been one hell of a suitcase you packed

    Twirl me about, twirl me around
    Let me grow dizzy and fall to the ground
    When I look up at you looking down
    Say it was only a dream
