Serendipitous lions

I like ER; there's a repeat every day at the moment and I like watching them the way I used to watch Hill St Blues. Almost real people in almost real situations; I cry more watching ER than any other show... and every now and then they do something really cool like doing a whole show with 5 characters in one room. Or playing really neat music, like the track from Great Expectations (Carol Hathaway giving birth) that I've

Bruce Cockburn, Wondering Where The Lions Are

Sun's up, uh huh, looks okay
The world survives into another day
And I'm thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

I had another dream about lions at the door
They weren't half as frightening as they were before
But I'm thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

Walls windows trees, waves coming through
You be in me and I'll be in you
Together in eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

Up among the firs where it smells so sweet
Or down in the valley where the river used to be
I got my mind on eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

And I'm wondering where the lions are...
I'm wondering where the lions are...

Huge orange flying boat rises off a lake
Thousand-year-old petroglyphs doing a double take
Pointing a finger at eternity
I'm sitting in the middle of this ecstasy

Young men marching, helmets shining in the sun,
Polished as precise like the brain behind the gun
(Should be!) they got me thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

And I'm wondering where the lions are...
I'm wondering where the lions are...

Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay
One of these days we're going to sail away,
going to sail into eternity
some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

And I'm wondering where the lions are...
I'm wondering where the lions are...

isn't that fabulous!

I saw the whole series on E4; was that the fax from Dr Green or him in Hawaii? And the season closer is a real gripper too ;-)
