When I was a child I used to wander In a world of magic all my own Where the beasts had funny names And their shapes were wild and strange And all of them would answer when I spoke.
And in the darkness I would go there As I lay in my bed alone. I'd close my eyes and see The place I longed to be And gladly stay until the dawn.
I'd travel to another country Oh, what a lovely place to be. Where the creatures all were tame, And the echo knew my name, When in my dreams it called to me.
But I forgot, when I grew older, About the country in my mind; The beasts with funny names And moonlit circle games With childhood toys were left behind;
But sometimes starlight would remind me Of places where I used to go, And every now and then When talking with a friend I'd ask if they'd been there also...
Do you recall another country? I used to think that it could be; Where the creatures all were tame, And the echo knew my name, When in my dreams it called to me.
But now I've recently discovered The way back to places I recall The creatures I knew then Are with me once again And there is magic after all;
And I may sing to you by starlight, Or trace a shadow on your screen, Or take you by the hand Across a moonlit land To places only I have seen...
So come with me to another country Oh, what a lovely place to be. Where the creatures all are tame, And the echo knows your name, When you come share the dream with me.
This started out trying to be a song about Cyberia, the country inside computers and networks, but it sort of got away from me. It still fits but it got bigger, somehow. Songs are like that.
