Eddi Reader - Dragonflies lyrics

A lost summer's day, a lifetime away
What do you find
Slow turning sun, with somewhere to run
On your mind
Not the flash that you saw
That was gone in the wink of an eye
As soon as we're here, we disappear, like dragonflies.

Their miracle blue can never tell you
How it came to be
Each different kind, accidental designed
Before you and me
And we ask the whole of our lives
maybe there's no why
As soon as we're here, we disappear, like dragonflies.

How can something so fragile leave us helpless
We all feel helpless once in a while
How can something so fragile leave us humble
We all need humble once in a while.

And now nature can sing such beautiful wings
Did you think of this
That each of us know in our hearts we must go
And that's what beauty is
And just as the dream you were in
dissolved in the morning sky
As soon as we're here, we disappear, like dragonflies.

How can something so fragile leave us helpless
We all feel helpless once in a while
How can something so fragile leave us humble
We all feel humble once in a while.

And now nature can sing such beautiful wings
Did you think of this
That each of us know in our hearts we must go
And that's what beauty is
And just as the dream you were in dissolved in the morning sky
As soon as we're here, we disappear, like dragonflies.
