lyrics

i’ve been asleep
but now i can see everything is
wide awake
waiting for the morning

patient in those first hours
the still life scene
holds carefully
one moment in spite of my bad dreams

so here i am again, up in the middle of the night
nothing’s moving there’s no sound in the faint light
still this stillness is stilting storms inside
so here i am again and just for a moment everything’s all right

if i were a ghost
i’d float gracefully, calm and serene
go through the day
as if i were still in this scene

i’ll spend the night
stirred, wondering, silent and still
light crumbled west
but i’ll stay till the sun is on that hill
