Skipping Stones

I wish I could ride a skipping stone far and far across the sea
And skip ashore that distant land where flew the dreams I’d dreamed
I’d follow my dreams to where she lay dreaming my dreams of her
And wake her from deep slumber and gather her into me
To tell her how I’d longed for her but feared she were a dream
A dream I’d dreamed that traveled far, and far and far away

Oh I wish that I could travel far, and far and far away
I wish I could find her by the sea, waiting there for me
She’d kiss my cheek and smile and ask where had I been
She’d tell me she had flown to me skipping stones across the sea
And found me in deep slumber dreaming her dreams of me
She’d left me then alone to dream and set out for the sea
To scatter skipping stones around the shore for me to see

Oh I wish that I could travel far, and far and far away
And skip ashore the other side where I know that she would be
I’d wake her from her slumber and softly kiss her lips
She’d tell me how she’d missed me and dreaming dreams of me
And how she wished she could cross the sea on skipping stones to me

Oh I wish that we could travel far, and far and far away
We’d skip ashore some distant land sure we’d found our long lost dreams
We’d take our skipping stones along to scatter on the shore
For others dreaming dreams that flew to find and ride across the sea

I wish I could ride a skipping stone far and far across the sea
To find the dreams I’d dreamed before they flew away from me
I’d gather her into my arms and kiss her softly on her lips
I’d tell her now I’d found my dream and not to fly away
No more skipping stones for us to ride far and far across the sea
The dream I’d dreamed that flew away had flown back home to me.
