Sleeping Ute

  • Dreamed a long day
    Just wandering free
    Though I'm far gone
    You sleep nearer to me

    If I could find peace
    If this night bleeds
    But I can't help myself

    So I walk out
    These wandering dreams
    Of the north road
    Dressed gold and green

    If I could lie still
    As that grey hill
    But I can't help myself

    But it's calm and it's clear
    Collapsed here on the stone
    Delivered to this place
    A vision dark and cloaked

    And those figures through the leaves
    And that light through the smoke
    And those countless empty days
    Made me dizzy when I woke
    And I live to see your face
    And I hate to see you go
    But I know no other way
    Than straight on out the door

    And I can't help myself
    And I can't help myself
    And I can't help myself Writer/s: Christopher M. Taylor, Christopher Robert Bear, Daniel Raphael Rossen, Edward Droste
