As heard on BBC Radio 2 Folk show on 26th August!
A ballad like earworm, this hypnotic track with a beguiling hook was written by Kelly Oliver and produced by Stu Hanna, who is half of award winning folk duo Megson. Kelly did the lead vocals and guitar with Stu adding mandola and keys. He then added backing vocals from Megson, ie himself and wife Debbie Hanna, yet with expert production kept the song simple with Kelly's voice retaining centre stage.


Lyrics :
You've been dreaming, dreaming all your life
You're a boy, then a man, dreaming day and night
I'm a dreamer, I'm a little girl,
but we're dreaming of the same thing, in the same world

We've been drinking, drinking 10 year old
And you're telling me the secrets that you've never told a soul
And I'm listening like a 10 year old
We're just little boys and girls telling stories of the same world

Come away oh, oh away oh,
Just for a while and see the life you're living
Well it's standing in the way oh,
Of every dream, of every meeting
You won't believe me, no

You've been crying, crying proud tears
And you're telling of the grieving that you've known for many years
I'm a proud girl and I've grieved as well
We're just little boys and girls grieving in the same world

Come away oh, would you come away oh,
Just for a while and see the life you're living
Well it's standing in the way oh
Of every dream, of every meeting,
You won't believe me, no

Let the night sky fade away,
Saying things that we shouldn't say
Feeling things we could never tell
Oh maybe in another place, in another world
