a fish on land

I HAD A DREAM LAST NIGHT
A FISH ON LAND
GASPING FOR BREATH
JUST LAUGHED
AND SANG THIS SONG
IS LIFE LIKE THIS FOR EVERYONE
IS LIFE LIKE THIS FOR EVERYONE

I PICKED HIM UP
HE HAD A HUMAN FACE
I CARRIED HIM
TO WHERE THE WATER WAS
A GREY AND STILL AND DUSTY THING
A GREY AND STILL AND DUSTY THING

I DROPPED HIM IN
AND HE COULD BREATHE AGAIN
AND THEN HE GREW
AND HE BECAME A MAN
I KNEW THAT I WOULD MARRY HIM
I KNEW THAT I WOULD MARRY HIM

I HAD A DREAM LAST NIGHT
A FISH ON LAND
GASPING FOR BREATH
JUST LAUGHED
AND SANG THIS SONG
IS LIFE LIKE THIS FOR EVERYONE
IS LIFE LIKE THIS FOR EVERYONE
