Cliff Richard - Reflections



Cliff Richard - Reflections

Last night I had a dream,

Through a swirling fog I walked along on the edge of a stream,

I heard somebody groan,

I stopped, looked into a pool,

And I saw the reflection of a fool

I saw the reflection of a fool.


Dragging him by his throat

Were the collar and the links of a chain,

On his shoulders a coat,

On his feet shoes of pain,

The coat was strife,

The chain was pride,

I saw the reflection, and I cried

I saw the reflection, and I cried


Tears for myself a fool,

A man chained by independence,

Gripped by despair so cruel,

My life was a lot of nonsense,

My eyes were closed, but in my mind,

I saw the reflection so unkind,

I saw the reflection so unkind


Sick of life - scared of death

My days just one long futility,

Feeling my emptiness, I cried "God set me free",

I looked once more - I don't know how,

But I saw the reflection changing now,

I saw the reflection changing now


A man was in my place

A man with holes in his hands and side,

A man I could not face,

The man I had crucified,

On him was my coat,

My chains and my shoes,

And between reflections I must choose,

Between reflections I must choose,

Repeat twice..
