I Dreamt I Met Paul Simon

lyrics

I dreamt I met Paul Simon. He was carrying a flute.
I said, “I really dig your music, man.
For me, there is no substitute.”
He said, “Yeah, well you know, I appreciate that.
Always tried to do my best.
A diamond in the desert
Means you’re somewhat cursed but mostly blessed.”

So many things I’d like to have said -
All I could say was thank you.
So many words stuck here in my head –
All I could say was thank you.

I dreamt I met Art Garfunkel outside Terminal 5.
I said, “The way you sang those songs he wrote, man,
Makes me glad to be alive.”
He said, “Yeah, well you know, I appreciate that.
The song always did come first.
A diamond in the desert
Means you’re mostly blessed but somewhat cursed.”

Why is it always stupid pride that gunks it up somehow?
Humility and gratitude – Lord knows we need ‘em now.
Make the call, apologize - let all those feelings go.
If you need someone so bad, don’t be afraid to let ‘em know.
Let ‘em know. Work it out.

I dreamt I met Paul Simon.
He was coming off the stage.
I said, “Man, you’re the last of a special breed –
A treasure from another age.”
He said, “Yeah, well you know, I appreciate that.
Always tried to do my best.
A diamond in the desert
Means you’re somewhat cursed but mostly blessed.”
