Real Life
words and music Stephen Barling

real life
you get the answers but they're wrong
you get the dancer and the song
along the edge of our domain

real life
all you want but cannot see
is offered up for next to free
along the edge of our domain

while off in wandering
and something to see
there's the distance
from you to me

real life
wisdom's wishes for the day
and all a gift a hallowed way
a loving end to our domain

real life
though we wait on an air for the moonlight
sleep in a chair through the daylight
there's still no end to our domain

while often wandering
and something to do
in the distance
from me to you
I'd up and show you
but if left to me
there'd be nothin'
and we'd be free
