The Colonel

Lyrics: Alex Koford
Music: Alex Koford

Played by Alex Koford with Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band in June 2013.

When I awoke from the dream I had
I didn't feel a thing
Well I don't know if I'm supposed to be sad
Well something feels right when I sing

Watch me fall into this vast black space
Rock 'n' roll for days on end
For every thought I think controls my faith
And every word is kept within

Oh, I've been a loner now
Most of my life I've been afraid
To say what's on my mind
It's a trait that I can't fight

Sometimes I wonder, if I call your name
Could you hear my selfish plea
Would my voice just echo through these hills
Quieting through every tree

Oh, I think I'm crazy
But does crazy could mean
Oh, now, keep coming now
Though we're really all the same
Till we pass through this same truth
