It's So Easy To Dream

  • (Bob Frankie)

    What can you do with your day but work and hope
    And let your dreams bind your work to your play
    What can you do with each moment of your life
    But love till you've loved it away
    Love till you've loved it away

    It's so easy to dream of the days gone by
    It's a hard thing to think of times to come
    But the grace to accept every moment as a gift
    Is a gift only given to some

    There are sorrows enough for the whole world's end
    And there are no guarantees but the grave
    But the life that I live and the time that I spend
    Are treasures too precious to save

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1988:] A wee gem this one. Learned from Rick Lee as we cowered in the kitchen of his Massachusetts home, while Hurricane Bertha raged outside. The words are Bob Frankie's, the whimpering is mine and the tree crashing through the roof is Rick's ... (Notes Iain MacKintosh, 'Gentle Persuasion')

  • [1988:] A song from my new album [,] the song that I thought was the weakest song on the album. I can tell you this quite candidly. And yet this is the one song people who have bought the album have commented on most. (Intro Iain MacKintosh)
