Lie down in the light

When the sun welcomes us in
and the earth's protective skin
fails and peels back, face to chin
then we start it all again

Why do you frown?
Why do you try?
Why don't you lie down
in the light?

Who's gonna hold my heart
Who's gonna be my own?
Who's gonna know when all is dark
that she is not alone?

Heed this word: beware
for my heart's ways are unclear
A fundamental prayer
leaves the evil one stripped bare

Everybody says that it's all right to be there
Everybody says that it's all right to show
time and again one of us falls behind
It's as if we tried to know
what we can't really know
