I've been asleep for a long, long time
Blond hair to brown and brown to white
My ma is buried beside my dad
But I was asleep for all of that

And I shut my eyes for a moments rest
Cause I get so tired
What thing transpired while my body slept?
To beset my mind

Well the schools that we went to have all been closed
And all of my teachers are dead I suppose
The songs that we sung have all gone quiet
What happens below as we sleep at night?

And I shut my eyes for a moments rest
Cause I get so tired
What things transpired while my body slept?
And beset my mind

The rivers up, the reeds are caught
Halfway across what never was
The water rose and swept in slow
When the reeds awoke they were half below

I've been asleep for a long, long time
Blond hair to brown and then brown to white
My ma is buried beside my dad
But I was asleep for all of that

I've been asleep for a long, long time
Blond hair to brown and brown to white
My ma is buried beside my dad
But I was asleep for all of that
For all of that
