All trust Needs must Suppress the fear Lie down right here Rest up till the morning Sun sets Head rests Heavy, your feet Blocks of concrete Rest up till the morning
Shining Mountain, my eyes! Spin drift flying in gusts Slow your pulse Tall dreams before first light Drift off to snow capped highs Slow your pulse Slow my eyes
First Light 05:23
Hold on now, for dear life It’s one hell of a ride In a blink of your eyes A heartbeat in time Hold your breath, count to ten Slow it down, my friend A flood of oxygen I need this no end One hundred years pass in the night When I lose myself in the skies Feels like 8 degrees Fahrenheit But I could stay here till first light But I could stay out here all night
Going for miles, your body’s tired Stars in the sky, greet the night You’re sleeping sound Shutting your eye’s, your breathing slows A whispered prayer, let things be right You’re sleeping sound You’re sleeping sound Trust, don’t wake now Rest up from Hauling Trust, don’t wake now You’re sleeping sound Rest up for now
Behind houses the Rooftops guide my eyes Swallows wheeling high Through the peaceful sky Behind the houses I have found a place Of my own My wilderness I’ll be staying Under a canopy Tall trees in the breeze White sheets sail the wind Air waves on my skin Behind the houses I have found a place Of my own My wilderness I’ll be staying
