After the Gold Rush Lyrics

 

After the Gold Rush - k.d.lang

Well I dreamed I saw the knights

In armor coming

Saying something about a queen

 

There were peasants singing and

Drummers drumming

The archer split the tree

 

A fanfare blowing to the sun

That was floating on the breeze

 

Look at mother nature on the run

In the nineteen seventies

 

I was lying

In a burned out basement

 

With the full moon in my eyes

 

I was hoping for replacement

When the sun burst thru the sky

 

There was a

Band playing in my head

And I felt like getting high

 

I was thinking about what a

Friend had said

I was hoping it was a lie

 

Dreamed I saw the silver

Space ships flying

 

In the yellow haze of the sun

 

There were children crying

And colors flying

All around the chosen ones

All in a dream all in a dream

The loading had begun

 

Flying mother nature's

Silver seed to a

New home in the sun

 

Flying mother nature's

Silver seed to a new home
