ארכיון פילקים בעברית ופילקים שנכתבו ע"י כותבים ישראלים


אוקטובר 20th, 2008 by Dana

I've developed an intensly negative reaction to the "Go-Play-With-Fairies" brand of filk. I mean, I'll enjoy the songs as much as the next person, but I dislike the worldview they portray – "We don't belong, we should run away someplace where we'll be happy". It's annoyingly irresponsible.
Besides, I quite like the idea of growing up.
Tune: Heather Alexander's "Neverland"

הקלטה בביצוע דנה כץ, ללא ליווי.

Once we all were children, and so it was we played,
But then I had to grow up and I left you where you stayed.
I married my dear James, the bravest man I've ever known,
And had my Darling Angela, a daughter of my own.

My dreams are in a drawer in the dresser down the hall.
I take them out so rarely; soon I won't do so at all,
But my heart still remembers. It echoed with you pain
When one look at my face told you I'll never fly again.

Never again to fly above with foolish boys,
Never again – I've left behind all childhood's joys.
Never again, though the child within me cries now, too -
Never again – No, Peter, I can't fly with you.
Neverfly… Peter, I won't fly with you.

My Angela went with you, adventures on her mind.
I watched you, my sight blurred with tears of joy and sorrow twined.
You gave to her a thimble and sword that fit her size,
But it was never you that wiped the tears from my child's eyes.

Like me, she wanted to become your mother, wife and friend,
But there's no happy ending to a story with no end.
Beside my dreams there lies a truth I much too carefull hid:
You never will grow up – nor would we love you if you did!

Never again to fall in love with heartless boys,
Never again – I've left you as I left my toys.
Never again, though the mother I am cries for you -
Never again. My days of flying are long through.
Neverfly… My days of flying were so few.
