It felt like Springtime on this February morning
In a courtyard birds were singing your praise
I'm still recalling things you said to make me feel
All right I carry them with me today now

[Chorus]
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
Till you call my name and it sounds like church bells
Or the whistle of a train on a Summer evening
I went to meet you barefoot, barely breathing

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

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

[Chorus]

And I wait for and I wait for, and I wait for
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out, when the sun comes out
When the sun comes out again
And we gotta keep holding on
We gotta keep holding on, we gotta keep holding on
I will wake up happy
