"Castles In The Air"

(As recorded by Don McLean)
DON MCLEAN

And if she asks you why you can tell her that I told you that I'm tired
Of castles in the air
I've got a dream I want the world to share and castle walls
Just lead me to despair.

Hills of forest green where the mountains touch the sky
A dream come true
I'll live there till I die I'm asking you to say my last goodbye
The love we knew ain't worth another try.

Save me from all the trouble and pain I know I'm weak
But I can't face that girl again
Tell her the reasons why I can't remain perhaps she'll understand
If you tell it to her plain.

But how can words express the feel of sunlight in the morning
In the hills away from city strife
I need a country woman for my wife
I'm city born, but I love the country life.

For I will not be part of her cocktail generation
Partners waltz, devoid of all romance, the music plays
And everyone must dance, I'm bowing out
I need a second chance.

Save me from all the trouble and pain I know I'm weak
But I can't face that girl again
Tell her the reasons why I can't remain perhaps she'll understand
If you tell it to her plain.

And if she asks you why you can tell her that I told you that I'm tired
Of castles in the air
I've got a dream I want the world to share and castle walls
Just lead me to despair.

Hmm, hmm.
