lyrics

Before the ancient sun
Wakes up for the day
I’m on my knees again
Learning how to pray.

The grass bends with me.
The crickets close their eyes.
It won’t be the same tomorrow,
But it’ll be alright.
I pray.

I’ll ask the rocks to help me
Make you change your plans.
The trees are on my side
Lifting up their hands.
And I see it as a sign
When the morning stays.
It won’t be the same tomorrow
But it’ll be okay.
I pray.

Lullaby
Darling, don’t cry.
The morning sun will come in time.
Lallu-lullay
Some things may change
But oh my darling, it’ll be okay.

And no matter what comes tomorrow
I will be by your side for it, so
Just close your troubled eyes my darling.
And I don’t know just how to pray it
So I’ll say it a thousand ways and
Give all my strength to you.

I can’t find words to speak
So I hope the wind will do.
It lifts leaves up to heaven
And now they’re praying too.

I slowly bow my head;
The flowers do the same.
We can’t know what’ll come tomorrow
But it’ll be okay.
I pray.
