Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The evening hangs beneath the moon
A silver thread on darkened dune
With closing eyes and resting head
I know that sleep is coming soon
Verse 2
Upon my pillow, safe in bed
A thousand pictures fill my head
I cannot sleep my minds a flight
And yet my limbs seem made of lead
Verse 3
If there are noises in the night
A frighting shadow, flickering light
Then I surrender unto sleep
Verse 4
Where clouds of dreams give second sight
Verse 5
What dreams may come both dark and deep
Verse 6
Of flying wings and soaring leap
Verse 7
As I surrender unto sleep
As I surrender unto sleep
