Adventure 165 ~ Publish The Lyrics Of My Own Song

sleepIt’s Day 6 of my song-writing adventure and today I’ve written the lyrics for the final verse and published the lyrics in full here. It was only when I’d written the very last line did I realise what the song is really about!

It turns out I have written a song that works on two levels : it’s both a lullaby and a ‘goodbye’, it’s both an invitation to sleep and an invitation to the ‘final long sleep’. I’ve put the lyrics to the final verse below today’s video for you to read 🙂 .

 

Verse 3 

Close your eyes, it’s late,

I’ll be waiting at the gate

Where the coracle willows are grown.

*

By the crimson lake

Where the water skippers skate,

Where the seeds of sweet sleep are sown.

Refrain

I’ll meet you there

With my hands in the air,

A dance in my heart

And my soul without care!

*

Where the fireflies burn bright,

Where souls sink soft into the night,

Meet me there and I’ll row you safe home.

I am just going outside and may be some time 🙂 .
