Sept 30, #2 [Sophie B. Hawkins, "As I Lay Me Down"]

It felt like spring time on this February morning

In the courtyard birds were singing your praise

I’m still recalling things you said to make me feel alright

I carried them with me today

Now

As I lay me down to sleep

This I pray

That you will hold me dear

Though I’m far away

I’ll whisper your name

Into the sky

And I will wake up happy

I wonder why I feel so high

Though I am not above the sorrow

Heavy hearted

Till you call my name

And it sounds like church bells

Or the whistle of a train

On a summer evening

I’ll run to meet you

Barefoot barely breathing

As I lay me down to sleep

This I pray

That you will hold me dear

Though I’m far away

I’ll whisper your name into the sky

And I will wake up happy

It’s not too near for me

Like a flower I need the rain

Though it’s not clear to me

Every season has its change

And I will see you

When the sun comes out again
