I Dreamed There Were Unicorns by Bill Caddick We were traveling north to sing and play For friends that we had never met Been working hard and didn't speak The sky was grey and threatened wet And I dreamed that I saw unicorns Dreamed I saw them wild and white their sudden beauty lit the world Like a star will light a winter's night Pure as love with manes of milk They danced and pranced and cried aloud Bright as rainbows round the stars Their eyes were soft and sad and proud And I wept for the wild and dirty world To which this beauty now was lost And cursed the hungry mind of man That feeds the future at such cost My head was bowed, my eyes were closed When in my ears their voices rang And these few words lodged deep inside And in my very soul they sang We never went away You always knew that we were near Remember how to look for us You'll see we were always here I raised my eyes to seek them out The world was empty all around The rain came tumbling from the sky It drowned all dreams upon the ground And when they asked me why I wept Like one who for his dead love mourns The only answer I could give I dreamed that there were unicorns We never went away You always knew that we were near Remember how to look for us You'll see we were always here sung by Chris Foster on All Things in Common SOF
