If I Die In My Sleep While Dreaming Of You

if I die in my sleep while dreaming of you
would I fall in the water and swim
would the sky be unlikely to fly me away
or open up to welcome me in
and if I call out your name as I fall into nothing
would it sound like a faraway bell
and if I disappear in a whisper
would anybody know where I fell

these are questions I ask
as days go by
and I see old friends disappear
some people say that
they know where we go
but I don’t think it’s all that clear

there are canyons of laughter
oceans of tears
wherever you hang your hat
serious questions
for serious people
but I don’t want to live like that

so I’ll fill my glass
full of good clear water
and I’ll drink to the ways of the world
I came in stumbling
and so will I go
out to where the future unfurls

and if anyone asks
if anyone calls
for where I do repair
tell them the wind
has come and gone
and they can find me out there somewhere

so if I die in my sleep while dreaming of you
would I dive in the river and swim
would the sky be unlikely to fly me away
or happy to see me again
and if I call out your name as I fall into nothing
would it sound like a watery bell
and if I disappear in a whisper
would anybody know where I fell
