lyrics

Last night, while I lay dreaming
I flew a freighter plane
But, the cargo bay was empty
and the cockpit was the same
The jet engines were screaming
the ascent seemed far too steep
But instead of stalling out I climbed
above 90,000 feet

From up there in the heavens
I could see no one below
I could see no banks or markets
and I could see no homes
No flashing of the marquee
or the red lights hollow glow
No churches and no graveyards
and no unburied bones

Well, I saw the vast ocean whose blue was unfailing
I saw the white mountains who reached out to touch me
I saw the brown and the green of the plains and the forest
And all was so small that once seemed enormous

Then looking above, unhindered by rafters
the old great bear reached to pull me up faster
She fed me with song, she quenched me with laughter
then took me away to meet with her master
