lyrics

The stars they shine so faint
Reflected off the lake
Don’t rock the boat
The slightest ripple scares them

The water sinks so cold
Hundred feet or more
A glacier came, carved her name,
See the echo

Let the stillness of the night
Away from noise and the man-made light
Teach me how to sail on,
through tomorrow

My love she warms the bed
Crystal dreams wrapped round her head
Strands she weaves, borne on the breeze
She’s floating

Now it’s time to sleep
Daylight starts to creep
Under eyelids, driving dreams
away-o

Let the stillness of the night
Away from noise and the man-made light
Teach me how to sail on
through tomorrow

Waterlilies close
until dawn they softly doze
Roots in the mud, a humble bud
seeking heaven

Glory glory be
when this bud the daylight sees
A lotus bold
finer than golden honey

Let the stillness of the night
Away from noise and the man-made light
Teach me how to sail on
through tomorrow

Balloon man rises wee
Someday he’ll visit me
He’ll find me here, just drifting
In the shallows
He’ll find me here, just drifting
In the shallows
In the shallows
In the shallows
