Dearest Babe Who sleepeth by My cradle tonight My cradle tonight How oft, how oft I have dreamt And my sleep Prolongs My dreams I promise you this Your light will shine All through the day And every night How oft, how oft I have dreamt And my sleep Prolongs My dreams Your spirit gaze Will never be lost As your thought escapes Into the frost How oft, how oft I have dreamt And my sleep Prolongs My dreams

Intending you to come around I ask you listen to the glow Have a moment to yourself alone And in the evening if you can’t reach calm Please remember part of you is air We slowly make the high ground It takes a million blows It’s rarely leveled in the way we want to imagine so For every door Another close It's rarely leveled how we want to imagine so Woo Sah Coolay No more dead and done In every vision something’s missing while you want to make it whole On the edge of what is able to explain And in the middle there’s an invisible rope Slight tugs tend to keep you safe Slight tugs tend to keep you safe Slight tugs tend to keep ya We slowly make for high ground It takes a million blows And we’re reeling when we shake the rope Every instant aligned Infinite torn apart Funny how a formula reveals a charm Woo Sah Coolay No more dead and done

You are a part of me Across time and space The unspoken clause The sign in a trace You are a part of me Both present and erased Full of tiny instants Stretching moments in the maze This is my consciousness All intertwined Falling from the cliff Landing in the tide I’m feeling fine A little tossed around Although we share this distance I can feel you in the clouds You are here But also gone Stars stay lit But some aren’t found You are here But also gone I'll stay lit Until you're found You’re my connection to the other worlds A tiny swirl in the corner of my eye I tried to hide but the feeling won’t subside It’s turning yearning loud The fields are gone The sky is light My vision is receding I’m awaiting your arrival now You are here But also gone Stars stay lit But some aren’t found You are here But also gone I'll stay lit Until you're found

No No Questions anymore No need to interpret I don’t need to even up a score I’m beneath the surface I have all my integers aligned I am moving forward Glistened, listen, I am on the prowl Now revealing purpose I am drifting through the wood Seeking out that long understood From the bottom of an ancient tree All the hidden symbolism It knows me My story Often flight can put me in a whirl Then I set to digging I’m not one I’m many of the world I am going fishing Fix the sign and show it to the world Ships that bare the weather Knowing not can flow it to the curve Trusting wind to feather I am leaving in the morn Seeking out that long forlorn And bleeding love to the feet of the earth Watching every creature reveal its worth It knows me My story
