The days of castles in the air
when every maiden is so fair
you are living in a world of dreams
where all is real not only seems
there are no tomorrows just as yet
no pleasures joys you will forget
oh how I wish I were there still
but I woke up against my will
I am now wise I am now old
or at least so I have been told
but you my friend are dreaming on
I realise then that nothing is gone
if I could only learn from you
then all that magic beauty is still true.
