The Dancer Who Dreamed He Could Fly

A song for Marc (1947 - 1977) Born To Boogie

"If fame is an illusion," said the Wizard to the Face,
"The past is all confusion and now's the only place.

From the earth to the September sky,
Like a dancer who dreamed he could fly

"The time has come," the Wizard said. " To get up on the stage.
With your corkscrew mane and silver train, like a Botticelli sage."

From the earth to the September sky,
Like a dancer who dreamed he could fly.

"Beware, take care," the Wizard said, as the boy ripped out his song.
"Your reign is nearly over, your future almost gone."

From the earth to the September sky,
Like a dancer who dreamed he could fly.

The Wizard smiled his work to see, as the boy who'd travelled far,
Rose to be free, from the arms of a tree and blazed like a shooting star.

From the earth to the September sky,
Like a dancer who dreamed he could fly.
