C.M. Sadler and Sunset Recording remix. Dizzy on Bass Guitar


There once was a word
In the land of make believe
Wondered about it
All the time

Word was in fables
In text I could not read
Just kept me guessing
All the time

Word was spoken all the time
Book just kept on closing all the time

Seems like I’m moving
Maybe find my “okay”
Keep myself waiting
All the time

Can’t seem to shake it
It all comes into play
Close enough to miss it
All the time

Still I listen for it all the time
Word is getting closer all the time
Listen for it - eyes wide open

Ancient tongues that spoke it all the time
Ears that listen for it all the time
Listen for it - and eyes wide open

Still I listen for it all the time
All the time …
Still I listen for it all the time
I listen for it all the time
