Sometime before dawn
I could hear you breathing soft
Far off dreaming, pixie dust
But I was lost
Thinking how you’d said
Maybe we’ve all been misled
And there’s something unseen out there
Like ultraviolet or infrared

Till the sun
Baby come lie down
Bring your thoughts
To the here and now
I hear your storm
But the bed is warm
You’re allowed

And later when it rained
You got high and cooked all day
I ate a bit, but I refrained
I was afraid
to look away

Haunted by the thoughts
Of what I’d do and who I was
And why the things I’d left undone
Came all at once

Till the dusk
Baby just lie down
Bring your thoughts
To the here and now
Another’s touch is enough for us
Don’t be proud

That night in the dark
I could hear your beating heart
All the angels with their harps
Have never found a sweeter sound

And though the thoughts remain
You can keep the dark at bay
You can fight and win the day
With a love

The stars are out
Baby don’t talk now
Keep on walking
And don’t look down
The great unknown
Is a home sweet home
Live in doubt

Till the sun
Baby come lie down
Bring your thoughts
To the here and now
I see your storm
But our bed is warm
We’re allowed

And somewhere in the crowd
There’s a faintly whispered sound
You can barely make it out
Unless you’re quiet as a mouse

But when we’re at a loss
When the cold world takes its shot
Honey, that’s all that we’ve got
It’s our life, it’s our lot

Till the sun
Baby come lie down
Don’t get caught
By the turnabout
I feel your storm
But my arms are warm
When in doubt
