I seen a troubled Angel flying through the sky. He had a many colored rainbow shining by his side. He had seven golden horses running through the night, and a crown of dreams to be his guiding light. He was searching for forever, through the dreams of yesterday, he was looking for tomorrow, for the debt he had to pay, He had a shining star, burning in his hand, and you could hear the heavens singing as he skipped across the land. He had a vision of the future, the debt he had to pay, for the crown of dreams, and the gift of yesterday, Then he heard a healing voice, from the endless sound of time,  it said – “Search no more for glory and rest your weary mind, for the Wisdom of the future is in the dreams of yesterday,  and let the colors of the rainbow be the only debt you pay.” – Bobby Lee
