PARK BENCH DAYDREAM

Park Bench Daydream (single) (2021). Lyrics by Dan Zlotnick

I’m walking towards the fountain
Thursday morning Washington Square
Sunlight through the trees, 
A late September breeze combs my hair

Chess games and German Shepherds 
A woman sketching dreams on the lawn
I’m hiding from myself, 
Put the future on a shelf where it belongs

I need a park bench daydream
To send my worries to the sky
I need a park bench daydream
To help me lose track of time

Colors start disappearing
Troubles rolling in like clouds
The moment starts to fade, the future has invaded 
I’ve been found

I have to call Miss Susie
Pack my bags for fifteen shows
It’s mighty hard to stop this living on the clock 
But it’s time to go

I need a park bench daydream
To send my worries to the sky
I need a park bench daydream
To help me lose track of time
