On the Wings of a Dream Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Forever John

This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Its About Time Album. It has also been released on The Very Best of John Denver (Double CD) Album.

Yesterday I had a dream about dying
About laying to rest and then flying
How the moment at hand
Is the only thing we really own
And I lay in my bed and I wonder
After all has been said and is done for
Why is it thus we are here
And so soon we are gone

Is this life just a path
To the place that we all have come from
Does the heart know the way
And if not can it ever be found
In a smile or a tear
Or a prayer or a sigh or a song

And if so I sing for my father
And in truth you must know I would rather
He were here by my side
We could fly on the wings of a dream
To a place where the spirit could find us
And joy and surrender would bind us
We are one anyway
Anyway we are more than we seem

There are those who will lead us
Protect us each step of the way
From beginning to end
For each moment forever each day
Such a gift has been given
It can never be taken away

Though the body in passing must leave us
There is one who remains to receive us
There are those in this life
Who are friends from our heavenly home
So I listen to the voices inside me
For I know they are there just to guide me
And my faith will proclaim it is so
We are never alone

From the life to the light
From the dark of the night to the dawn
He is so in my heart
He is here he could never be gone
Though the singer is silent
There still is the truth of the song

Yesterday I had a dream abiut dying
About laying to rest and then flying
How the moment at hand
Is the only thing we really own

And I lay in my bed and I wonder
After all has been said and is done for
Why is it thus we are here
And so soon we are gone
Why is it thus we are here
And so soon we are gone

When I hear this song I feel as if John would never be afraid to die - it's as if he knew the answers to questions unknown!

This song was NOT from the "Forever John" album from 1998, as it says above the song. That album contains a song with a similar title: "On The Wings Of An Eagle".
This song here, "On The Wings Of A Dream" is from a 1983 album called "It's About Time".
Just have to set the record straight for anyone looking to find this song.
