Only A Dream Away
From "Time Bandits", directed by Terry Gilliam
   
Chorus: Oh Ry In Eye AyTime Bandits
Oh Ry In Eye Ay,
Ah Ry In Ah Key Ooh Lay
Ka Kay Ooh Lau We
Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Say Te Lee Ay Vee Show
  
Midnight sunshine
Silent thunder
Sky as black as day
Only a Dream away
  
Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Oh Ry In Eye Ay,
Ah Ry In Ah Key Ooh Lay
Ka Kay Ooh Lau We
Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Say Te Lee Ay Vee Show
  
Waking while you're still deep sleeping
Finding you're not here
Watching a dream appear
  
Tumbling through a thousand centuries
You don't know where you'll land
It's so dark in mythology
Treasures of history to be found
Near the legends of time
All the handiworks remain there
Only a dream away
  
Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Oh Ry In Eye Ay,
Ah Ry In Ah Key Ooh Lay
Ka Kay Ooh Lau We
Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Say Te Lee Ay Vee Show
  
Greedy feeling wheeling dealing
Losing what you won
See the dream come undone
  
Stumble you may with the elementary
Lucky you got so far
All you owe is apologies
Measure the mystery and astound
Without taking up time
So the handiworks remain there
Only a dream away
  
Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Oh Ry In Eye Ay,
Ah Ry In Ah Key Ooh Lay
Ka Kay Ooh Lau We
Oh Ry In Eye Ay
Say Te Lee Ay Vee Show
  
Repeat to fade
  
Music and lyrics by: George Harrison
