  1. ingiliz grubun 1967 tarihli "tangerine dream" albümünde yer alan, dönemin ruhunu yansıtan masalımsı ve umutlu sözlere sahip güzel şarkı.

    a million white flowers in a field in the sky
    seemed to spell out a greeting as the children flew by
    a guard in a chariot of silver and gold
    gave the children all tickets, then the story he told
    of a time in the future that was sunshine and flowers
    and the children grew sleepy in the sky's white towers
    they dreamed of the story that the guard had displayed
    they saw all the wonders, tiny minds were amazed
    they saw candy forests and dragons that breathed fire
    on all that was evil in the misty mire

    they came to the village where the turtles in caves
    made pies for the people and the lemonade
    the people lived out by the sea and each day
    the seagulls would wake them as they passed on their way
    the people were kindly, they would sing to the sky
    and each bright new morning, the sun shone from their eyes
    the children passed over and all the people could see
    as they dived from the sky to the treacle sea
    they bathed on the white sand, minutes turned into hours
    and the children all giggled and gave each other flowers

    the king from his castle came down to the sea
    and he spoke to the children so patiently
    he gave them small presents and bid them farewell
    and the children unwrapped them, tiny silver bells
    their tinkling floated across the island with ease
    and it came back toward them on the perfume breeze
    they smiled at the tinkling, they gazed at the sun
    and they smiled at each other, pretty little ones
    a beautiful white horse came down to the sea
    and the children all climbed up as he knelt on one knee

    they rode through the valleys and high over hills
    and they laughed oh so loudly, their fear to kill
    they came to a lakeside of deep velvet and green
    and they all stared in wonder at its beauty serene
    they climbed from the white horse, they watch as it goes
    as they stood by the green lake water kissed their toes
    a boat in the distance was suddenly there
    waiting to take the children to anywhere
    the porcupine captain said that he didn't mind
    in his coat of blunt needles, he looked very kind

    his crew were six rabbits with fluffy white ears
    and the children all stroked them and lost all their fears
    they sailed through the sunshine, across the green lake
    and they drank lemonade and they ate ice-cream cake
    they landed in a dark cave as the boat disappeared
    and they all stood in darkness, through the shadows they peered
    but out of the blackness shone diamonds so bright
    their tiny white hands shielded eyes from the light
    in a pool of quicksilver stood neptune so wise
    and pearls were his white teeth, bright diamonds his eyes

    he spoke to the children in a voice of velvet
    and he beckoned them to him, in a circle they sat
    he told of sky island and of his magic cave
    and magic pink seashells to the children he gave
    they listened intently as the music came forth
    from the magic pink seashells and nobody talked
    but neptune had vanished when they lifted their eyes
    so they walked from the cave as two kingfishers cried
    in the bright shiny sunlight, they got down on one knee
    they listened to the sea shells of the musical sea

    but the day grew much darker, so they climbed on the breeze
    and they floated to the village, and the people were pleased
    to see them so happy with their tinkling bells
    and the people all listened to the musical shells
    but the children were so sad, the time had come to leave
    so the people waved goodbye and begged them to believe
    of the wonders they had seen in the island of the sky
    and the children said they would and away they did fly
    through the white clouds of no time till forever it seems
    and the children stayed children and they lived in their dreams.
