Pieces of Dreams, music by Michel Legrand, lyrics by Alan & Marilyn Bergman

Four decades running, and now comes the realization, that it's a thin line, between a free spirit, and a lost one... :(

I chose the Jack Jones video because his album Jack Jones Sings Michel Legrand was the one my father played when I was a "little boy lost or found" in the early 80's, from which I first heard and enjoyed Pieces of Dreams which was nominated by the Academy Award for Best Song.

Pieces of Dreams
(Music by Michel Legrand, lyrics by Alan & Marilyn Bergman)

Little boy lost 
In search 
Of little boy found 
You go on wondering, wandering 
Stumbling, tumbling 
'Round. . . 'round. . . 

When will you find 
What’s on the tip of your mind 
Why are you blind 
To all you ever were 
Never were 
Really are 
Nearly are 

Little boy false 
In search 
Of little boy true 
Will you be ever done
Always unraveling 
You, . . you. . . 

Running away 
Could lead you farther astray 
And as for fishing in streams 
For pieces of dreams 
Those pieces will never fit 
What is the sense of it 

Little boy blue 
Don't let your little sheep roam 
It's time come blow your horn 
Meet the morn 
Look and see 
Can you be
Far from home... 

And it turns out that the movie Pieces of Dreams, with the eponymous soundtrack song, has a rather interesting story, especially for Roman Catholics. ;)
