Song Meaning
Verse 1
When I was a young man I found an old dream,
Was as battered and worn a one as you have ever seen.
But I made it some new wings and painted the nose,
And I wished so hard up in the air I rose, singing
Verse 2
Carry me, carry me
Carry me above the world
Carry me, carry me, carry me.
Verse 3
And I once loved a girl
She was younger than me
Her parents kept her locked up in their life
And she was crying at night,
And she was wishing she could be free.
Verse 4
Course mostly I remember her laughing
Standing there watching us play.
For a while there, the music would take her away
And she'd be singing
Verse 5
Carry me, carry me
Carry me above the world
Carry me, carry me
Carry me above the world.
Verse 6
And then there was my mother:
She was lying in white sheets there and she was waiting to die.
She said, "If you'd just reach underneath this bed
And untie these weights,
I could surely fly.
Verse 7
She's still smiling but she's tired,
She'd like to hear that last bell ring.
You know if she could she would
Stand up, and she could sing, singing
Verse 8
Carry me, carry me
Carry me above the world
Carry me, carry me.
