As i lay me down

Sophie B Hawkins

      it felt like springtime 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 carry them with me today now
    as i lay me down to sleep, yes i pray, that you will hold me dear
    though i'm far away, i whisper your name, into the sky
    and i will wake up happy 
 i wonder why -- i feel so high, while i'm not above my sorrow
heavy hearted 'til you call my name
 and it sounds like churchbells or the whistle of a train
on a summer evening I want to meet you there, i'm barely breathing...
<< chorus x2 >>
 it's not too near for me, like a flower i need the rain
though it's not real to me, every season has its change
and i will see you when the sun comes out again
<< chorus x2 >>
