Donovan Dreams

Tribute song for Donovan by Jimmy Stanley

Lyrics:

Thinking of the days, when love would light the world,
And you shone through with words of peace for every boy and girl,
Oh, where did you come from, and where did you go to?
We saw you rise with Merlin's eyes and universal view.
Songs of nature's vine, the multi-coloured kind,
And tuning all our senses to a world we'd never find,
Stories you could tell from an ancient wishing well,
Lost in childhood fantasies and caught within your spell.

Chorus:
Making Donovan Dreams, that's the way to be,
Helping all of our schemes, break reality,
Making Donovan Dreams taught me how to see,
That beauty lies within your soul, and music is your message for me.

Flashing through the years, when you burst on the scene,
Beatnik and Bohemian, Denim cap and jeans,
Eyes that read the news, and ears that heard the cries,
Of many people suffering for their freedom in the lies.
Well before your time, and changing thoughts and minds,
A Sunshine Superman in Mellow Yellow in disguise.
Even now today, with all the Gypsy tales you play,
An influence, intelligence, the meditating way.

Chorus
Making Donovan Dreams, that's the way to be,
Helping all of our schemes, break reality.
Making Donovan Dreams taught me how to see,
That beauty lies within your soul, The message in the music...
Making Donovan Dreams, that's the way to be,
Helping all of our schemes, break reality.
Making Donovan Dreams, taught me how to see,
That beauty lies within your soul and music is your message...
