Über dieses Lied
My Friend You’re Just Dreaming

Change your clothes
change your face
change everything
change the colour of your skin
change your name
change your tongue
chances are you just won’t fit in
and you’ll be out on a limb

Grab your coat
grab your bag
better move along
you better get it done
and leave it all behind
lonesome rider
soldier of fortune
with his golden age gone for good 
and who would bet on dawn

My friend you’re just dreaming
hey, you’re takin’ it for real
My friend you’re just dreaming
watch the turning of this wheel
and you hope and you pray
it may keep spinning on

Watch your steps
mind your head
show your callous hands
your flawless tie
sport the sweat upon your brow

Try so hard, try to get it right, 
try to be on time, try to top it off 
and beat them all

My friend you’re just dreaming
hey, you’re takin’ it for real
My friend you’re just dreaming
watch the turning of this wheel
and you hope and you pray
it may keep spinning on 
Die englischsprachige Fassung eines schweizerdeutschen Liedes (Tröim doch) von mir. Nicht wirklich eine Übersetzung, vielmehr eine Übertragung in eine andere Sprachwelt. Einige Bilder sind aber geblieben.
