Narnia Song

©1975 Andrew Calhoun, recorded on Phoenix Envy
Written for my father's birthday. I was 16, he was 46.

My mother read us C. S. Lewis at seven or eight at night;
Narnia warmed my soul, and showed me what was right. 
But you can forget those things I told you, 'cause they aren't true anymore, 
Lions are just characters, you can buy them at the store. 
Innocence is a luxury, it's not allowed forever, 
Soon you'll have to learn, soon you'll have to catch the fever. 

Lightning splits the trees, but the good will stand together; 
Lightning lights the night, and we can see forever. 
Thunder shakes the earth, water soaks me to the skin; 
Searching for truth and heaven, farther up and farther in. 

I wish that there was magic, I wish that kings were good; 
I wish I could get into that snowy pine tree wood. 
I love him not for what he taught me, but for how he made me feel,
I thank him for his vision, I wish that it was real;
I used to think that somewhere Narnia was glowing in the mist, 
But now I mostly function, now I just exist. 

Lightning splits the trees, but the good will stand together;  
Lightning lights the night, and we can see forever.  
Thunder shakes the earth, water soaks me to the skin;  
Searching for truth and heaven, farther up and farther in. 

I don't know where I'll be when sun drags in daylight's dream; 
I wish my dreams were life, I wish my life were dream. 
Where you learn to hold your tears, innocence is a crime, 
Why did you smother me with darkness, Father Time? 
Won't you tell me that you love me? Tell me I won't die? 
Won't you bring me magic? Won't you teach me how to cry? 

Lightning splits the trees, but the good will stand together;  
Lightning lights the night, and we can see forever.  
Thunder shakes the earth, water soaks me to the skin;  
Searching for truth and heaven, farther up and farther in.
