I like to close my eyes

and pretend.


I’d like to lodge a complaint
With the relevant authority
With each other’s where we ought to be, Cathy

I’m gonna write to the Times,
Sign it: desperate of Dolphin’s Barn
Shouldn’t we be in each other’s arms, Cathy?

Cathy, it’s at times like these I wish I wrote like you,
You seem to bend your words to suit your needs,
You melt my heart with your imagery, but I don’t know
How to say it better, than darling since I met you
I haven’t been the same

And I don’t know, all the whys and wherefores
But you’re the one I care for and that will never change… Cathy

Oh to be with you tonight, smoke a j and drink a g and t,
Do whatever’s coming naturally, Cathy

Turn the sheets into sails
Turn the bed into a golden ship
Floating slowly down the Mississippi, Cathy

Cathy can you help me please, you put these things more poetically than me
I’ve sang of how love feels but it’s much harder when it’s all real
And I don’t know
How to make it clearer, than honey when I’m near you
It’s like I’m in a dream
And I don’t know if held in stormy weather
But just to be together is good enough for me,Cathy
