Balloons

I walk along the beach to watch the dawn design the sky
And to paint its golden rays with red balloons
I’ve a notion that from far away the sight will please your eye
When the dawn ignites a stream of bright red moons
Then the cold waves touch my bare toes so I let my cargo free
And a rainbow of emotion greets the day
Watching red balloons head skywards, that are sent to you from me
I find every single part of me at play
Four thousand miles or holding hands the picture is the same
I want to paint my daydreams just for you
One hundred red balloons released, a special sort of game
It’s a brand new day I’ve daydreaming to do.
