# 9 Dream


John Winston Lennon
October 9, 1940, Liverpool -December 8, 1980 NYC

(#9 Dream was #9 in the charts, J.W.L was born on the 9th day, and if one adds the five hour time difference with Liverpool, he died on the 9th day, too. He was fixated with the number, as in Revolution #9, and One after 909)

So long ago
Was it in a dream, was it just a dream?
I know, yes I know
Seemed so very real, it seemed so real to me

Took a walk down the street
Thru the heat whispered trees
I thought I could hear (hear, hear, hear)
Somebody call out my name as it started to rain

Two spirits dancing so strange

Dream, dream away
Magic in the air, was magic in the air?
I believe, yes I believe
More I cannot say, what more can I say?

On a river of sound
Thru the mirror go round, round
I thought I could feel (feel, feel, feel)
Music touching my soul, something warm, sudden cold
The spirit dance was unfolding
