lyrics

On the night before I turned thirteen
I said some words before I went to sleep
I wasn’t sure what I believed
But they seemed right to me

So I said softly:
“Bless the good ones and please bless the weak
Tomorrow I swear I shall try and see
How very nearly perfect I can be”

I closed my eyes
And suddenly
It’s 1943
I’m in the snow
It’s night
You’re lying where they said you’d be
I place your hand in mine and say:
“You’re only just a few years older
They always say I have your eyes
I’ve always pictured you in black and white”

That makes you smile
Then, you say softly:
“Do you think that you could stay here with me
For even just a little while?”

I say:
“I’m here forever, I’m with you”

He says:
“Me too”

And suddenly
The night sinks down
It’s all around us
Years are screaming by
The morning comes
And then another
Still I’m holding tight
I still say words
Before I sleep
I’m still not sure what I believe
Now,
Sleep
Sleep
Sleep.
