The Dawntreader - Joni Mitchell

    Peridots and periwinkle blue medallions
    Gilded galleons spilled across the ocean floor
    Treasure somewhere in the sea and he will find where
    Never mind their questions there's no answer for
    The roll of the harbor wake
    The songs that the rigging makes
    The taste of the spray he takes
    And he learns to give
    He aches and he learns to live
    He stakes all his silver
    On a promise to be free
    Mermaids live in colonies
    All his seadreams come to me

    City satins left at home I will not need them
    I believe him when he tells of loving me
    Something truthful in the sea your lies will find you
    Leave behind your streets he said and come to me
    Come down from the neon nights
    Come down from the tourist sights
    Run down till the rain delights you
    You do not hide
    Sunlight will renew your pride
    Skin white by skin golden
    Like a promise to be free
    Dolphins playing in the sea
    All his seadreams come to me

    Seabird I have seen you fly above the pilings
    I am smiling at your circles in the air
    I will come and sit by you while he lies sleeping
    Fold your fleet wings I have brought some dreams to share
    A dream that you love someone
    A dream that the wars are done
    A dream that you tell no one but the grey sea
    They'll say that you're crazy
    And a dream of a baby
    Like a promise to be free
    Children laughing out to sea
    All his seadreams come to me
