It felt like spring time on this February morning
In a courtyard birds were singing your praise
I'm still recalling things you said to make me feel alright
I carried them with me today

Now, as I lay me down to sleep
This I pray, that you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name into the sky
And I will wake up happy

I wonder why I feel so high
Though I am not above the sorrow
Heavy hearted till you call my name
And it sounds like church bells
Or the whistle of a train on a summer evening
I'll run to meet you barefoot, barely breathing

As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray, that you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name into the sky
And I will wake up happy

Oh, darlin', as I lay me down to sleep
This I pray, that you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name into the sky
And I will wake up happy

It's not too near for me
Like a flower I need the rain
Though it's not clear to me
Every season has it's change
And I will see you when the sun comes out again

As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray, that you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name into the sky
And I will wake up happy

As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray, that you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name into the sky
And I will wake up happy

I wonder why
The sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again

The sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again
Comes out, comes out again
I will wake up happy
This I pray
