lyrics

When they’d lay me down
they’d give their words to me
I’d climb into their rooms
in their cradle be
and when the dark night fell
and the breath was slow
they’d send me off to dream
where the wild winds blow

There a little light was about to go out
what will I find?
what will there be all for me
a little light was about to go out,
turn it down low, and
I’ll let you follow me there.

When you’d lay with me
our bodies burned bright
you’d shovel embers round
in our frightened eyes
and when the dark night fell
and the breath was hot
you’d send us off to dream
we’d find all we’d sought.

But a little light was about to go out
what did we find?
what was there left for you,
a little light that could never go out?
Turn it down low
and I’ll let you follow me there.

Now they find me gone
vacant, homeless eyes
I’d climb into their rooms
in their cradle lie
I don’t want to rise
I don’t want to cry and
I don’t want to see you, my love
I’ll give up this fight.

I’m a little light now about to go out
what did I find?
they left me here to be
a little light now about to go out
turn me down low
and I’ll let you follow me down.
