Dangerous Night

(David Crosby/James Raymond)


Now some small parts seem right scattered here and there
One smiling face in a crowd thatís angry and scared
Canít seem to see where it doesnít get worse
Itís like one good thought getting lost in an angry verse

I try to write Buddha and it comes out guns
I vote for peace and the blood still runs
I want to believe I can pass happy to my child
But the truth gets lost and the system runs wild

Send me someone who has doubts about it
Who has conquered their own fear and lived to tell about it
Someone who wonít give up in the frozen rain
Whoíll walk right next to me through the orchards and the grain

I wake up from a dream of a baby and a blast
Scenes from the television in the blue light it cast
Seek peace in your own heart sounds true, sounds right
Iím a troubled soul searching for peace in the night

Send me someone who has doubts about it
Who has conquered their own fear and lived to tell about it
Someone who wonít give up in the frozen rain
Whoíll walk right next to me through the orchards and the grain

Trying to figure out how it all fits together
Humans and sun and oceans and weather
And even if I dream alone on such a dangerous night
Tryiní to make all these pieces fit right

Send me someone who has doubts about it
Who has conquered their own fear and lived to tell about it
Someone who wonít give up in the frozen rain
Whoíll walk right next to me through the orchards and the grain

Even if I dream alone on such a dangerous night
Somehow I know Iím going to dream again tonight
